AT&T's Xperia X10 goes back to the future, getting updated to Android 2.1
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 now looks nearly antique with its lack of system-wide multitouch and dated Android, but while it might have missed a couple of cycles of software updates, it’s now back in the update game with… Android 2.1 Éclair.

After much hard-work, we are happy to announce that the Android 2.1 upgrade will be available for AT&T XperiaTM X10 customers in the US starting Tuesday, May 31st,” Sony Ericsson commented on their official product blog.

No typo here, the version number for the AT&T-branded Xperia X10 is on its way to becoming 2.1, not even Froyo, let alone the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But all fun aside, the update is major as it brings true multitasking, significantly improved overall performance and responsiveness and updated baseband which reportedly aids signal reception. Finally, this results in faster switching between GPRS/EDGE 2G networks and 3G, while placing a call has also been sped up.

The user interface hasn’t undergone a major overhaul, but some minor changes are perceptible. First of all, you’re treated with new and smoother animations  along with status bar and notification area changes. Check out the source link below for instructions about the update and let us know how it all went in the comments below!
