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]

  • Well you got to give Sony credit for trying.
  • SE needs to just send out an engineering update that completely unlocks the phone. Let the community upgrade it...should take about 6 hours.
  • Old phone, old story, do you even know anyone that knows anyone with this pos!?

  • Personally, I've got to say that I think this blog is rather slanted against SE for their Android efforts. I agree that SE has been slow to follow and participate in Android development, along with hardware releases in general. However, even though they loathe MotoBlur and my beloved Motorola Cliq, they aren't quite as quick to trash talk my phone as they are ANYTHING that SE releases. I realize this is a blog, and it is entirely up to the author(s)/owner(s) to put whatever slant or personal opinion onto any of their content. I just figure that at some point, if you've become somewhat of a staple within the industry with regards to the quantity and variety of information you provide to consumers, can't you just give the personal slants a rest? As I said, there's hardly a kind word ever given towards my Cliq, and I don't even own any SE device, but after a while this stuff gets a little trite. Come on guys, just share the info. Don't mock us for having bought a phone. I love the site and am an extremely frequent visitor, but wanted to offer my own slant on these posts, as I think the intent to educate is sometimes lost in an attempt to belittle a vendor...just my take on this.
