February 11, 2008 Headlining an array of new releases from Sony Ericsson, the XPERIA™ X1 marks the launch of a new brand for the company, one which it hopes will gain traction in the brave new world of mobile convergence where the term "phone" just doesn't cut it anymore.

Featuring a 3-inch clear wide VGA display, media player and 3.2 mega-pixel camera housed in a metal-finish, slider-design body, the XPERIA X1 offers multiple navigation options from touch screen interaction to a 4-way key, full wide-pitch QWERTY keyboard or optical joystick with seamless switching promised between input modes.

The 110 x 53 x 16.7 mm, 145 g X1 includes Windows Mobile® capabilities and as a personal media player it supports video streaming to the 800 X 480 pixel VGA screen, Bluetooth™ stereo (A2DP) and FM radio. The 3.2 megapixel camera features auto focus and video recording and onboard memory is up to 400 MB with a microSD™ memory card slot to back it up.

No word yet on pricing, but according to Sony Ericsson we should start to see the XPERIA™ X1 hit shelves from the second half of 2008. Visit Sony Ericsson for further info.
