Video outs Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 running Android 2.1

Video outs Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 running Android 2.1
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.

The X10 SHOULD come with 2.2 already installed. What nonsense this is, getiing to 2.2 piece by piece (so to speak). At least package the device with 2.1 out of box. How absurd of SE. Peace!

Seriously, this phone is old news, esp in the android world. The original DROID lasted this long because of good marketing, being good and reliable, and getting 2.2 upgrades. The X10 IMO, should have had 2.0 from the start. Having it upgraded to 2.1 is not good enough. If it was straight from the box from AT&T and they having plans on getting 2.2, that would be one thing. But this is the best it's going to get and it doesn't even offer multitouch. Completely unacceptable, I'm sorry. I was really excited about this phone when it first came out before. Having a 4 inch screen and a 1GHz processor was very outstanding then. It just came out through AT&T and it's suppose to be an high end device yet, much lower end devices have 2.1 from the start.

Is there anyway to get multitouch working on this phone?
