Sony Ericsson U.K. confirms September Android 2.1 update for Xperia X10; are U.S. models included?
Thanks to a tweet sent out by Sony Ericsson U.K., overseas owners of the Xperia X10 now feel comfortable that they will not be using Android 1.6 by the end of next month. It is not certain whether or not the message, which says that Android 2.1 will be due for the device by the end of September, applies to Stateside owners of the Xperia X10 on AT&T.

Originally, as we reported, the upgrade was expected sometime in Q4. As the number of high end Android models getting upgraded to Android 2.2 starts increasing, the pressure grows on Sony Ericsson to take the Xperia X10 up to Android 2.1. This would narrow the gap in functions between the flagship unit of the joint venture and other flagship models like the Motorola DROID X and the EVO 4G. The latter is currently powered by Android 2.2 while the former is expected to be upgraded to the Froyo build sometime early next month, as we have told you.

OMG, Finally, Sony Ericsson X10 is going to upgrade to Android 2.1 very soon, the wait is gettting close, which is not bad because AT&T released this phone just two weeks ago.

It has already been announced that not only was the software unable to perform multitasking, which its being updated soon this month, but the phone HARDWARE is officially incapable of performing multi touch. To which sony has said they are working on other methods of interfacing.... such as pin_ to_ zoom rather than pinch to zoom. I actually prefer pin zooming as when used with shape writer "Swype" your phone is completely user friendly one handed. Excellent UI experience.

YES! finally much better dessert, although FROYO would be more fit for this device but nonetheless, It's a huge step up from SONY ERICSSON!
