Sony Ericsson promised they've learned from past teething issues with Android, and will bring the latest version of Android even to a first-effort handset like the Xperia X10 as a tribute to that, and it is delivering the update as we speak with the goal to complete the roll-out by the end of this week.
It is great news that breathes new life in an oldie-but-goodie Android handset, which was stuck with a pre-Froyo version of Google's mobile OS until now. There were some custom ROMs designed for it, but nothing beats the official deal, which brings with it all the goodies Gingerbread has, plus the updated Facebook inside Xperia interface.
The update will be rolled out within a week, starting this past Friday, and will only be available via a computer with the PC Companion software. The Gingerbread bakery can be visited only on generic unlocked phones for now, while just a handful of carrier versions will be getting the update. See what the update does in the video below.
