Xperia X10 gets an update, still waiting on Android 2.1

The good news: An update is rolling out the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 as we speak. The bad news: Nope, it's still stuck on Android 1.6. Here's what you are getting, though:

This update focuses on improving the general performance, speed and responsiveness of Xperia X10. For example, there are speed improvements in messaging tasks and camera UI. In addition we add a free back up and restore application so you’ll never lose your settings and information. In selected markets, PlayNow™ with premium apps and games will also be added.

Better than nothing, we guess. But as we talk more and more about devices starting to get Froyo, the wait for Eclair becomes that much harder to stomach. [Sony Ericsson Product Blog]
