Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 Gets Windows Mobile 6.5

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 Get Windows Mobile 6.5Even though everyone else is still bandying around with Windows Mobile 6.1 and we’re on the eve of a release of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X2, the XPERIA X1 could be in for a very pleasant surprise very soon. Based on some rogue developing, the XPERIA X1 may soon be getting its virtual hands on Windows Mobile 6.5.

As you may have already heard, Windows Mobile 6.5 won’t be seeing an official retail release until October 1st. That’s still nearly a full month away, but it seems that xda-developers forum member itje has come across an official Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM ahead of schedule and he’s cooking it up for the XPERIA.

This ROM, as the story goes, hosts some of the same drivers as the XPERIA X2, except they’ve been adapted to suit the older hardware. Unlike some of the unofficial ROMs that have already been cooked up by others, this one is fully official and will be made available publicly “shortly,” whatever that means.

In any case, you can probably find some information on the XDA forums as this develops. Those guys are always on top of the Windows Mobile cooking scene.
