Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Will NOT Get Android 2.2 Update

Sony Ericsson UK has confirmed that the Xperia X10, X10 Mini, X10 Mini Pro and the X8 won’t be getting the Android 2.2 update after all. This news is definitely not going to please all the Xperia owners out there.

However, Sony Ericsson says that the Xperia X10 and its other siblings will get many other enhancements via software update.

Sony Ericsson has already stated that they will release a software update for the X10 in Q1 of 2011 which will bring multi-touch support to the handset. Apparently, Sony Ericsson will also release another update which will add new functionalities to the MediaScape and TimeScape UI of the handset.

However, X10, X10 Mini Pro, X10 Mini and X8 users now need to look at the Custom ROM scene for their handset to get Android 2.2 or Android 2.3 running on their handset.
