Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android 2.1 Update: First Look at HD Video Recording

While HTC has already begun rolling out Froyo, Sony Ericsson is still trying to get Android 2.1 out of the door. Android 2.1 is expected to arrive on Sony Ericsson handsets in Q3, which essentially means within the next couple of months. However, an xda forum member has already managed to get his hands on an X10 running an internal Éclair build.

The Android 2.1 update will introduce live wallpapers, 16M colors, improved application support and hopefully improved performance. Besides the standard Éclair improvements, the new ROM will also feature HD video recording. The aforementioned xda forum member was kind enough to record a sample video for our viewing pleasure. To be honest, the video quality is nothing spectacular. It’s not bad by any means, but the frame rate could have definitely been better. Let’s hope that finished ROM will fix the current deficiencies.
