Sony Ericsson Says Xperia Software Update Starts Sunday
Sony Ericsson today announced that it will begin updating its Android-based Xperia devices to Android 2.1 starting on Sunday, October 31. The Xperia X10, X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro — which shipped with Android 1.6 — will all receive the 2.1 Eclair update. Sony Ericsson will roll out the update in phases, and expects the software update to be distributed throughout the month of November. Most users will be able to update over the air, though some may require the use of a PC. The new software adds capabilities to al three devices, including the newer features in Android 2.1
Of course, anyone who just bought anything running 1.6 probably ought to have their head examined, but that's another story.
Now, that's just insulting. It was bad enough that these devices shipped with 1.6, but to now only upgrade them to 2.1, when everyone else is moving to 2.2, is a slap in the face to all the people who bought these
