The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is coming, SE promises us that. But we still don't know the final official details like the date it's coming, the price it'll be, and what US carrier it'll land on (if one at all). For a device that we were rather impressed with after giving it a hands-on and one that is also pretty well known in the Android world, it's surprising that Sony Ericsson hasn't gotten this thing out yet. But we guess it's not surprising since it is Sony Ericsson after all.

Either way, if you want to learn more about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, a Sony Ericsson employee has answered a bunch of questions over at Tweakers (a Dutch site). The highlights (or lowlights?) are that the X10 runs Android 1.6 and won't launch with multitouch. Luckily, the X10 looks like it will upgrade to 2.1 sometime in the future but we're not exactly sure if they'll be able to add multitouch via software update (like the Nexus One & Droid did).

So we waited this long (and continue to wait) and SE still can't manage to get 2.1 and multitouch on launch? Not the news we wanted to hear!

Sony Ericsson Answers Questions About the Xperia X10

SE and Nokia have their work cut out for them. Neither company can release phone's at the right time. By the time they finally do, they the phone's are obsolete. Works out for me though... I'm glad I didn't have to choose on the N900 and X10, and got the Nexus One instead. ;)

Hah, tell me about it. The N900 was available before the N1 to be sure, but it came out so late that I ended up trying (and loving!) Android, at which point I lost all interest in Maemo.

LOL My thoughts exactly. Epic fail on Sony Ericsson's part, if you ask me (if this ends up being true).
