The 8 megapixel camera has continuous autofocus and HD video recording in back as well. Every bit of it now official.

The X2 will cost you $200 on contract and will be available to buy online…drum roll please… tomorrow. It will hit stores a week later, on May 26th. Judging by the close proximity of the USB and HDMI ports on the side of the new X2, we wonder if there is a laptop and multimedia dock in it’s future.
