Conclusion: Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2 is supposed to carry the torch from the X1. Normally, you'd expect the successor to bring some innovations along but those are almost non-existent on the X2, save for the slightly (ever so slightly) larger display and the better snapper.
Pros: Quad-band GSM support, Tri-band 3G with HSDPA 7.2Mbps and HSUPA 2Mbps, Four-row slide-and-tilt QWERTY keyboard, Landscape and portrait virtual QWERTY keyboards, Handwriting recognition, 3.2" 65K-color TFT LCD resistive touchscreen (480 x 800 pixels), Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional, XPERIA panels...
Cons: Outdated hardware, Sluggish interface, Display still on the small side, inadequate touch sensitivity and sunlight legibility, Almost no screen auto-rotation throughout the UI, Disappointing video recording, Basic music player, No FM radio (should be enabled with upcoming firmware update), No vide...
Conclusion: I’m afraid to say that I think this is a rather poor effort by Sony Ericsson. Don’t get me wrong, the device is not terrible, its just not as good as other handsets on the market right now. The one thing that really frustrated me about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is its clunkiness.

Summary: Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X2 promises an intuitive user experience but delivers very little. The XPERIA panels have merit but suffer from lag, while in general the phone is frustrating to use thanks to slow performance, a resistive touch screen and the largely standard Windows Mobile interface.
Pros: Arc slider, excellent keyboard, XPERIA panels have some merit, great camera
Cons: Slow performance, plastic and cheap-looking front, fingerprint magnet, resistive touch screen, largely uses the standard Windows UI, requires excessive use of stylus
Excerpt: It seems that Vodafone will indeed carry the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 in the next couple of weeks. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is the follow up to Sony Ericsson's first windows mobile phone, the X1.
Conclusion: Sony Ericsson's first Windows Mobile device was the company's first foray into the smartphone saturated market (Windows Mobile based), and it was understandable that they would probably need a few more tries to nail a winning formula.
