Sony Ericsson has posted a short video of the desktop environment from the long awaited update to the Xperia X10, and it says a lot. Mostly what it says is -- "five months after its release [and nearly a year after its announcement], we still won't be providing Android 2.2". The extra row of homescreen icons (the X10 will support 20 icons per screen vs. the standard 16) is a nice touch, as is the new calls widget, but I think I speak for everyone with an X10 when I say that development time might have been better spent getting Froyo working.
To their credit, it looks like the folks at SE have made the already great camera on the X10 even better, so for many I guess not being current with the operating system is a fair trade. We've got a video of the new desktop in action after the break, and hit the source link to see some demos from the new camera software. [Sony Ericsson Product Blog]
