Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 to get an Android Gingerbread update, after all, but not for all carrier versions
The carrier-specific versions of the Xperia X10 might be considered on a case-by-case basis. Sony Ericsson confirmed that the sudden change of heart was due to the overwhelming demand for this update, and the work the company already did to install Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread on its upcoming Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, Xperia Play and Xperia neo phones.
Good news for the Sony Ericsson Xperia 10 owners, but some functionality, like face recognition for the camera, might be lost in the process. Mediscape will also be replaced by the new media and music player widgets (check them in our preview here). The Xperia X10 will be the only one receiving the Gingerbread update from SE's 2010 crop of Android handsets, and this will be the last update for it, whereas this year's phones will continue getting whatever Google has in store for the next Android versions.

GO SE! GO SE! LISTEN TO YOUR DEVELOPER! ITS YOUR PRODUCT RIGHT! GO SE! GO SE!
So we went from 1.6 to 2.1 and now 2.3. So those of us on global generic version of X10A are good?

SE is a tricky and listen to its own customers. Sweden and Japan winning combination.

I think this time the one to blame is AT&T for some reason an update everyone got already has not become available by the carrier so far everyone in know has 2.1 and that include may from Latin america (they are usually left to be the last) otherwise i recommend you check XDA they have the official ROM ported to AT&T if I'm not wrong, you can get your rightful update with no so many worries

I returned my X10 cause it couldn't play FLASH videos at all. Good thing I returned it in 30 days and got my ATRIX 4G. will never buy another Ericsson phone. And plus if it were to update NO CARRIERS WOULDN'T RECEIVE 2.2 OR GINGERBREAD LIES.
