Following on from the flagship Windows Mobile handset, the Xperia X1, the successor has been spotted. The Xperia X2, codenamed Vulcan, has been snapped by both from the front and the back. From the front you can see the qwerty keyboard has the Windows button in the top right, while also looking easier to type on than the keyboard found on the X1. Also on the front of the X2 is the panels button and the Xperia wording.

With a look at the back, we can confirm the X2 will sport an 8.1 megapixel camera, parring itself with the camera capabilities of the Sony Ericsson C905. Other details we can also confirm, is that the X2 will not be manufacutered by HTC, who partnered Sony Ericsson with the development of the X1.

Wow, this is really something. An application has been released for Windows Mobile phones, including the Xperia X1 from Sony Ericsson. The appplication, MobileRemote, allows you to connect your Windows Mobile phone via bluetooth to another bluetooth enabled device. In the video below, we see Youtube user bear807 connect his Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 to the PS3 using MobileRemote. The app will allow you to control about 85% of the functions on the PS3. The keyboard chat was tested out on Little Big Planet and worked fine. Browsing the internet also worked well for using the Xperia as a mouse and keyboard.

Bear807 also tested streaming music from his laptop to the PS3. It was noted that skipping to the next song or previous song didn’t work. MobileRemote can be downloaded from here for $8.99.
