XPERIA X10 Gingerbread Update Coming Soon
Sony Ericsson has always been very lazy and slow to roll out Android software updates to its XPERIA series. We all know how long it took Sony Ericsson to bring the Eclair (Android 2.1) update on the XPERIA X10.
XPERIA X10 Ginmgerbread update would certainly be a treat for the X10 users since Sony Ericsson seems to have dropped their plans for the Froyo (Android 2.2) update.
According to an official SE blog post,
We plan to bring an upgrade to Android Gingerbread for the XperiaTM X10 to generic trade kits end Q2 / early Q3 this year.
Sony Ericsson wants their XPERIA X10 to bring it in line with their other recently launched Android devices, the XPERIA Play and the XPERIA Arc.
Gingerbread for XPERIA X10 will only be for unlocked devices, and not for devices that are carrier locked. The roll-out is planned to start end Q2/early Q3 this year. Today, XPERIA X10 is available in the market both in generic trade version (unlocked) and in versions customized for operators. Due to the resources available in this special project, they will focus on delivering trade versions of the software.
