Sony Ericsson has unveiled its new Windows Mobile 6.5 powered Xperia X2 camera phone, as it looks to challenge Apple and HTC for a share of the burgeoning market for smartphones.
Set to go on sale during the fourth quarter, the mobile phone is home to an 8.1 megapixel camera, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and an impressively large 3.5-inch inch WVGA OLED display.
The touchscreen camera phone will also boast the new features and services offered by the latest edition of Microsoft’s operating system, including MyPhone and access to Windows Marketplace.
It is thought that Vodafone has secured exclusivity for the Xperia X2 in the UK and will be offering the handset on a range of contract plans from October.
Sony Ericsson’s move for market share in the smartphone sector this year will also be spearheaded by the release of an Android mobile phone dubbed the Sony Ericsson Rachael.
Specifications for the Rachael are currently unconfirmed, but it is known to feature a powerful Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset to allow speedy and simultaneous access to its functions.
