Sony Ericsson also launched the Panel SDK in a drive to encourage developers to create content for the XPERIA X2. The interface includes a new range of interactive Panels on the home screen offering business, fun and communication features.
The Panel SDK includes a Panelizer which turns existing Flash, Java and Windows Mobile applications into Panels for the XPERIA X2, and a native software development kit which allows developers to be the first to create panels for the Windows Mobile? 6.5 platform.
Using the Panelizer, developers are able to maximise the investments they have already made creating compelling applications. In just a couple of clicks and with no separate tool purchase, the Panelizer gives developers a low-cost way to turn their content into the Sony Ericsson Panel experience.
Besides supporting Panels and native applications, the XPERIA X2 is also equipped with a Java Runtime that makes Java/Capuchin applications run as well integrated as native applications.
Applications accepted as panels will be made available on Sony Ericsson's market place, PlayNow arena.
