Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 MR1 update gets detailed

Sony Ericsson has delivered on their promised first update to the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2.  On their blog they have listed the improvements the updates are set to bring and these include:

– MR1 is built on a new core platform release from Microsoft including a newer version of IE6
– Stability improvements are everywhere with focus on SlideView, Panel manager and TileWave
– Performance improvements focused on rotation and touch performance, the camera, web browsing, the software keyboard and audio streaming
– New features are added like FM radio, Video calling, Auto-lock and Fast GPS which allows for a faster first fix to the GPS signal
– SlideView 2.0 gives better usability throughout with a fresh design; and new actions are build in like new/reply/delete/edit capabilities in messaging and calendar. Music scrolling/searching and the mini-player have also been enhanced
– The new dialer took a big step forward with four easy buttons giving easy access to the dial-pad, favorites, call activity and contacts. We increased the target hit area in contacts for finger friendliness and added user friendly redial functionality
– Based on feedback from you, we really worked hard on the software keyboard (XT9) by improving speed and touch responsiveness

A further update to Windows Mobile 6.5.3 is expected eventually.
