Sony Ericsson at their Product Launch Blog made an official statement that the Xperia X10 will get an Android 2.1 update by Q4, 2010. Now, that is too long to wait.
Sony Ericsson’s Sumit Malhotra said that they are working on the UXP (UX platform) for Xperia X10, X10 mini and X10 mini Pro. He also said that X10 mini and X10 mini Pro will get Android 2.1 update by Q4, 2010.
The exciting and happy side for the Xperia X10 users is HD video recording will also come onboard with the update on Q4,2010. The video recording will be the same execution as in Sony Ericsson Vivaz. He also said that an update will be coming for the Xperia X10 within few weeks for solving the bugs related to battery.
Here is the change log given by Sumit Malhotra:
Some examples of user benefits that will be included in the UXP upgrade for Xperiaâ„¢ X10 in Q4 2010 are:
– Upgrade to Android OS 2.1
-HD video recording as per the same execution as Sony Ericsson Vivazâ„¢
-Wireless home connectivity via DLNA
-Improvements to signature applications Timescapeâ„¢ and Mediascape to make them even smarter and richer
This update could be mixed bag for X10 users because on one side this is horrible in terms of time and on the other side features like HD video recording (continuous auto focus), which is a very good news. On the whole the users have to wait for a long time, but the fruit of patience will be sweet.
