We recently reported that a tweet from Sony Ericsson's U.K. arm confirmed that an upgrade to Android 2.1 for the Xperia X10 would happen before the end of this month. We still have no word on whether this applies to Stateside units as well as overseas handsets. But what we do have is a video of the Xperia X10 from the recent IFA show in Berlin that shows live wallpaper on the phone. That proves that this particular device was running Eclair, not the Android 1.6 build that is the standard OS build out of the box for this model.
All of you Xperia X10 owners now have something positive to look forward to. Although it still isn't the Android 2.2 that some other flagship phones are running, it is a mighty leap up from 1.6 and should allow you to grab some of the more recent applications in the Android Market. Of course, there still is that lack of multitouch capabilities that you must overcome.
