Own an Xperia X10? Android 2.1 is Coming…

It’s amazing how much joy a Twitter message can spread, especially among owners of Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X10 mobile phone when a tweet confirms something they’ve been longing for is finally headed their way. We’re talking about the long-requested upgrade from standard Android 1.6 to Android 2.1! In reply to a follower, Sony Ericsson had this to say: “We can only confirm that the upgrade to Android 2.1 is due for release before the end of September this year. We hope this helps.” With September starting today, that’s a maximum of four-and-a-bit weeks to wait until your X10 gets its fill of […]

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro – A Mini Marvel!

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, fine phone though it is, didn’t exactly carve itself a niche in the market, as its 4″ screen, Android OS and Snapdragon processor could already be found on several other devices. However, when its siblings appeared a short while later, they were right there at the start of a revitalised phone genre.

Well, the wait is over and the news is both good and bad. X10 users will be getting an update to Android v2.1, but it won’t be made available until Q4, although they do promise it will come before the end of the year. So, a while to wait, but at least we know […]

Nokia X10 Leaked, More Symbian^3 Hardware?

The Nokia Xseries currently contains the X3 and the X6 smartphones, but this could change soon with the introduction of the third phone in this relatively new class.  Currently named the X10 – although surely Sony Ericsson will have something to say about that – it’s the latest smartphone rumour connected with the Symbian^3 operating system. On the eve of Nokia’s anti-climactic press conference at Mobile World Congress, there were rumours we would see the debut of the N8, touted to be the first phone to wear Symbian^3.  Obviously this didn’t happen, so will the X10 swoop in and collect […]
