Phone Handset Sendo X2 Announced

18mm thick, Support for miniSD, 1.3 megapixel camera with 8x Digital Zoom, charging over USB sync cable, triband support... meet the Sendo X2. At only 95 gramms, and only 85 cubic centimetres, we're talking small, powerful, and desirable. It plays heavily into the hands of the audiophile with both MP3, AAC and AAC+ audio file support. The Sendo Now! screen (still with exclamation mark) makes the phone just as desirable to networks as well, with its customisation possibilities. Luckily Rafe and Ewan are meeting the Management of Sendo later today, so if we can distract them long enough, we'll bring one home with us. Full specs and pictures can be found on the Sendo X2 Device page. ClarificationThe X2 runs Series 60, v1.2, using Symbian OS 6.1.

Nice

It's basically an updated X, with I suspect almost identical hardware. Will be interesting to see which version of S60 it runs.

Looks good.

I was thinking of getting an X but may hold out for this assuming the shipping doens't get put back another 2 years.

Not sure the miniSD is a good idea though. The advantage of full size is most people don't have to buy new cards for every device.

Having spoken to Sendo the Series 60 version is 1.2 not 2.0 (despite what Nokia said in an earlier Series 60 press conference). It does have Sendo extensions and these have been added to and tweaked (e.g. the music player as a Now! screen plugin). Otherwise UI wise it looks very similar to an X. Theme support is defintely go to be in it (along with a tool to convert from Series 60 2.0 themes).

The phone itself has some very nice touches, and the reduction is size is particular noticeable (i.e. it doesn't look like it ate all the pies). Also the sync and charging is now all done through a mini usb port. There's no flash, but its not as necssary since the camera does much better in low light conditions. Music playback is stereo via headset, but is impressive even on loudspeaker (and even better if you connect it to speakers). If anyone has any questions I'll try to answer them.

I'm afraid not, looking at the specs. A real shame, since it claims to be a "music phone".

Sendo are commencing a month of intensive testing on a new product next week! It's most likely that this product is indeed the X2.

Pity it's still Series 60 1.2, but this makes sense, as the platform is essentially the same as the X.
