This ‘delay’ as reported by OnlyGizmos.com 27/Oct is actually referring to an SE blog post which is a month old So there is in fact no further delay and 2.1 should be hitting X10s about now.
As The Smith’s once said; ‘Stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before.’ An Android update has been delayed. Yes, that old chestnut. So which phone is it this time? It’s the Sony Xperia X10 and its little brother (and phone of the year award winner) X10 mini.
It seems no handset is safe from the dreaded Android Delay.
Sony Ericsson has delayed the arrival of the much awaited Android 2.1 update to its Xperia X10 line up by a couple of weeks. The update, supposed to have been released by the end of October 2010 has now been put back a “couple of weeks” according to a blog by the company.
When Google and Sony Ericsson finally manage to run alongside each other in harmony, X10 customers are to expect: HD video recording with continuous auto focus (on the X10), a new back-up and restore application, with extended content back up, five homescreens for apps, widgets, shortcuts and folders, and a ‘Social phonebook’ which automatically syncs contact pictures from Facebook and shows when your friends are online.
It all sounds good, but if this update debacle is anything like previous ones, a couple of week probably means a couple of months.
