About a day late and a dollar short... They are about to launch the nexus 2 with gingerbread and the x10 is just now getting eclair? Just lets you know how long it'll be till we see the next update. However, at least the x10 is improved. I personally couldn't deal with 1.6 (even with the SE overlay) after experiencing 2.2 but 2.1 isn't too bad to work with.

Does anyone else have this problem? When I use the PC Companion software to update my phone, it says I have the latest software installed. I'm still running 1.6.
I'm in Singapore (South-East Asia). Does anyone else have this problem, or have a solution?

the article doesn't mention this but its nordic only right now. Best bet is to check your local sony-e twitter. If you need it today you could de-brand your device, and flash nordic onto it. It needs to be rooted. And you could encounter issues in the future.

@fryzie
Thx for letting me know. I just tought that there was something wrong with my phone/pc. I'll wait. I mean.... Even a week would still be fine. It's worth the wait. I'll finally be able to have the hardware on it used to the fullest (16 mil colors, 720p HD recording, faster/more responsive)

@Kevin
Hey, the phone will definitely be faster with Android 2.1
I'm using it right now, and trust me... Its ALOT faster.
EXAMPLE: No more lag when scrolling through menus and other scroll-based menus.
Also, the screen now has 16 million colors support; meaning when you vieew the pictures you took with the camera, the images appear alot more like their meant to.
One way you can tell that the 2.1 is Fully utilising the 1GHz proccesor, is that even with live wallpapers on ON, there is no lag whatsoever.
And hopefully, with the basic multitouch function coming out soon, this phone will be able to compete with other high end flagship devices. PLUS its got a LOW price now, thaks to its age.
Hope this helps.

Im still running android 1.6.... Just wanted to know an approximate time line when its gonna be released in the US. I am a lilltle surprised that almost the whole of the world has a 2.1 while im still sucking up with a 1.6
