Tulisanku beberapa hari lalu tentang Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 (Vulcan) akan diumumkan tanggal 2 September, ternyata terbukti. Hari ini secara resmi Sony Ericsson mengeluarkan Press Release untuk mengumumkan secara lengkap mengenai Xperia X2 atau yang dikenal juga dengan nama Vulcan.

Secara kebetulan, pada hari ini Nokia juga mengumumkan dua buah handphone dalam seri terbaru mereka, seri X, yaitu X3 dan X6. Kemungkinan besar Nokia sudah mengetahui bahwa Sony Ericsson akan mengumumkan X2 dalam waktu yang berdekatan sehingga mereka langsung memberikan index X3 pada handphone mereka, tanpa melalui penamaan X1 dan X2 karena akan bentrok dengan handphone lain dari Sony Ericsson. Entah apa nama resmi untuk Rachael nantinya, karena sebelumnya handphone Android pertama dari Sony Ericsson tersebut dikabarkan akan diberi index X3. Apakah Sony Ericsson akan mengubah index untuk Rachael atau tetap bertahan dengan alasan bahwa seri X (dengan 1 angka di belakangnya) dimunculkan pertama kali oleh Sony Ericsson? Layak ditunggu bagaimana kelanjutannya.

Seperti apakah Xperia X2 ini? Simak press release Sony Ericsson berikut.

Sony Ericsson puts developers at the centre of user experience with XPERIA™ X2

02 September 2009

New streamlined development tool maximises revenue opportunities and allows developers to create the first Windows Mobile® 6.5 applications for the XPERIA™ X2

Lund, Sweden – September 2, 2009 – Sony Ericsson launches the Panel SDK in a drive to encourage developers to create content for the XPERIA™ X2. The eye-catching interface includes a new range of interactive Panels on the home screen offering business, fun and communication features. By providing unparalleled real estate and marketing visibility, the Panel interface makes the developer central to the user experience.

The Panel SDK includes a Panelizer which turns existing Flash, Java and Windows Mobile® applications into Panels for the XPERIA™ X2, and a native software development kit which allows developers to be the first to create panels for the Windows Mobile® 6.5 platform.

Using the Panelizer, developers are able to maximise the investments they have already made creating compelling applications. In just a couple of clicks and with no separate tool purchase, the Panelizer gives developers a low-cost way to turn their content into the unique Sony Ericsson Panel experience. Panels are then just one touch away from the consumer’s home screen, allowing developers to truly shape the user’s mobile entertainment experience.

Besides supporting Panels and native applications, the XPERIA™ X2 is also equipped with a Java Runtime that makes Java/Capuchin applications run as well integrated as native applications.

Applications accepted as panels will be made available on Sony Ericsson’s market place, PlayNow™ arena, giving developers access to an even wider range of consumers using other Sony Ericsson handsets.  Developers from around the world also benefit from the 70% net revenue share offered by PlayNow™ arena, which is available in 18 countries.

“Putting developers’ applications directly in front of consumers is a crucial focus for us,” says Christopher David, Head of Developer and Partner Engagement at Sony Ericsson. “We created the Panel SDK to streamline the development process, minimising the time it takes to get applications directly to the consumer and providing developers with additional revenue opportunities.”

How it works
Developers can submit their applications by following these simple steps:

  • Go to Sony Ericsson’s Developer World website
  • Download the Panel SDK and follow the short Panel SDK tutorial
  • Go to and upload  ‘Panelized’ applications
  • Within 30 days the submission approval process will be complete. Successful applications are automatically available for wider usage on PlayNow™ arena.
