Sony Ericsson has unveiled a new handset that will run Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.5. The company said that the Xperia X2 will use the operating system to help power a number of messaging and multimedia features.
The X2 will use a new navigation system known as Slide View which will allow users to quickly access frequently used actions such as checking missed calls and text messages.
Sony Ericsson has also added a number of pre-installed and downloaded applications known as 'Panels', which will allow access to web services such as Skype, Google and Windows Live.
The X2 carries a number of multimedia features, such as TV out, a high-resolution screen and an 8.1-megapixel camera.
"In the fast-moving world we live in, the need to stay connected has never been so important," said Sumit Malhotra, marketing business manager at Sony Ericsson.
"We constantly rely on our mobile phones as an extension to the office and the Xperia X2 debuting with Windows Mobile 6.5 allows users to work quickly and efficiently while on the move."
