Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 Preview 2

by Reads (64,673)

When Sony Ericsson first unveiled the Xperia X1, the company was somewhat hampered by the fact that this upcoming device will run Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, an operating system that had not yet been officially announced at that time.

Fortunately for Sony Ericsson, the announcement it had been waiting for was made yesterday, so it is now allowed to show off this device in all its glory.

Kevin O’Brien and I are at the CTIA tradeshow in Las Vegas, and we got some hands-on time with the Xperia X1, and recorded some video of it in action.

The X1 will be a quad-band GSM phone with support for the 3G frequencies used around the world. It will also have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

This Windows Mobile Professional device will include up to 400 MB of internal storage, and a Memory Stick Micro card slot for additional storage.
