Maybe hinting at an impending announcement, or possibly in a fit of Rachael-inspired jealousy, the Xperia X2 has exposed itself again, this time from all angles, giving us closer looks at its new body, curious keyboard and bulky profile.


The X2 is expected to get a hefty, if not groundshaking, guts upgrade from the X1, with a 3.5-inch WVGA screen, 512MB of RAM, a faster processor, an 8.1-megapixel camera and, for god's sake, finally, Windows Mobile 6.5. Spec updates like this are always welcome, but I'm not so sure about the new styling: Sleek lines and a deceptively thin-looking angular design were strong points for the X1, so it's disconcerting to see a blobbier, altogether fatter-looking X2. Of course, none of these things will matter if Sony Ericsson continues to blindly price this line into oblivion. No word on that front, unfortunately.

UPDATE: Oh, wow: Here are some shots of the alleged Android Xperia X3. If these are real, the X2 could well be obsolete, at least in consumers' eyes, before it even comes out. Sad. Also: dumb. [XDA via BGR]



Did the X1 just flop when it came out? Too expensive? I don't even remember. Besides that, why do phone manufacturers still think landscape keyboards are a good idea. Not a single one of the most popular phones on the market right now have one. I just... don't... know...
