XPERIA X1 To Use MicroSD After All

As surur notes in our forums, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 won't be using the hateful, proprietary, Sony-Only Memory Stick format. It'll use microSD, like a proper smartphone should, assuming that the updated spec sheet is to be believed.

Surur also notes that the X1 might actually be running

  • A little note for the people who was disappointed by the news that the Sony Ericsson Experia X1 only used proprietary M2 memory sticks, Sony Ericsson has again revised their spec sheet to say MicroSD.
    Thank god for that. I would have gotten it regardless, but now at least I can re-use my 8GB memory card.

  • *dribbles* This would be the only handset to make me turn to the darkside!
    It's unusual for Sony to break away from their own memory cards...
  • I wouldn't be surprised if it has a dual loading slot that takes both M2 and micro SD, similar to SE's K850i.
    Aren't the two the same (albeit with minutely different form factors)?
  • Is just because Xperia is not a Sony but an HTC
