XperiaX10 to finally get Android 2.1 Sony Ericsson launched the high end smartphone Xperia X10 earlier this year which disappointed would-be buyers when it came with the outdated Android firmware version 1.6.
In May, the company noted that it would possibly update the smartphone to Android 2.1 in the Q4, and today they have confirmed the update.

Posting via Twitter, SE UK has said it will begin rolling out the 2.1 update in September, earlier than expected.

Coming with 2.1 for the X10 are HD video recording, Wireless home connectivity via DLNA and improvements to signature applications Timescape and Mediascape to make them even smarter and richer.

The X10 has a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 4-inch 854x480 touchscreen which until now, did not have official multi-touch support.

Why don't companies just skipped the 2.1 update and go straight to 2.2?

Well, in Sony's case, it is an attempt to make the user experience as bad as possible...and about the only thing worse than 1.6 is 2.1...I hate iOS, yet iOS4 is actually better than android 2.1
