Sony Ericsson has just announced that a new major firmware update for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X2 is now available for users. The update is called the MR1 or Major Release 1 and includes Windows Mobile 6.5.2 and IE Mobile 6


Here’s the official change log
- 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

Incase you are using an XPERIA X2 and want to grab the update , head over to the Update page and download it. And looks it’s being rolled out slowly and don’t be surprised if it’s not available in India

    This had better fix the stability issues. I submitted a warranty claim with SE 3 days ago and am still waiting on management approval for a replacement phone. What good is a warranty that needs management approval? Also, when you spend $400+ on a phone, you would think they realize that you probably can’t go over 3 days without a phone and then probably wait several more for shipping. I have always loved Sony Ericsson, but this is their last chance before I switch to Samsung.
