Sony Ericsson unveils Windows-toting Xperia X1

Sony Ericsson has released details of its first ever Windows Mobile-based handset, the X1 – flagship of a new range of smartphones dubbed ‘Xperia’.

The clever caller will feature a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that SE is calling an ‘arc slider’. In reality this means it slightly curves out towards you, banana-fashion.

Although the X1 is indeed powered by Windows Mobile, Sony Ericsson have bolted on top a customisable, icon-driven operating system, ‘Xperia Panels’. Any resemblance to the iPhone’s OS is surely accidental.

The X1 will also boast a crisp 3in display, 400MB of internal memory expandable by Micro SD, a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and HSDPA download speeds.

It looks as if ditching the ‘e’ at the beginning of a word is all the rage these days. Just ask Nokia and their Music Xpress range.

Sony Ericsson also announced two more additions to its Cyber-shot range. The C702 is a 3.2mp snapper with GPS function that records the location of every photo. It also uses Google Maps for turn-by-turn navigation.

And there’s another 5mp cam in the family to complement the popular K850i. The C902 has many compact features including face detection and 16x digital zoom.

Price: £TBA
On sale: TBA
