For those who are still waiting for Sony Ericsson to release the Windows Mobile XPERIA X2, there is now a fake floating around called the XDERIA X2 which also runs Windows Mobile and what looks to be a version of SPB Mobile Shell.

As far as the score is concerned, the [...]

The unique panels on the Xperia X2 have been extracted and, like the Experiment 13 game, they are now making their rounds on X1 devices.
