Sony Ericsson: X10 family getting Android 2.1 in "Q4 2010"

According to a post on Sony Ericsson’s Product Blog today, the underlying framework that houses the company’s many custom modifications to Android will be updated at the end of the year, adding new features including HD video recording – and also updating the X10 range’s Android 1.6 OS in the process.

The short version of that is… The X10, X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro will find themselves running Android 2.1 in Q4 of 2010. That’s quite a long wait, but it’s to be expected when you consider the massive amount of customisations poor old Sony Ericsson’s developers have to port across to the new OS.

The blog post also says that a smaller, non-core, bug-fixing update for the full-sized Xperia X10 will arrive sooner than that to fix a few issues with the phone, but it won’t update the handset’s basic OS or be anything too exciting.

    lol thats so funny, so if this comes out on time, which it probaly wont as there is always delays, everyone else will be running android 2.2, so x10 owners will always be behind.

    • Sony Xperia Z2 review

      This is Sony’s latest go at producing a high-spec Android flagship model, with the Xperia Z2 ticking every one of 2014’s must-have tech bullet points. It has a large 5.2-inch 1080p display. It has the hot new Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset inside. It has a massive 3GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. It’s […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
