Sony Ericsson X10 to be graced by modern version of Android at some point…

For the sake of not rehashing on already beaten story topic, we’ll just simply state that no one is cool with Android 1.5/1.6 still being the feature OS on new phones. With that off our chest, we can look past our curtains of hostility and cynicism to a brighter future if one SE spokesperson is correct. In conversation with Cnet ASIA, the SE spokesperson mentioned that the often talked about (though still MIA with no date of US arrival) Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will in fact get some form of 2.x software. That’s all fine and dandy, but someone needs to tell Sony they actually need to *release* the phone first.

With the blazing speed (/sarcasm) at which the X10 is making it’s way to market, I wouldn’t be surprised if the X10 was blessed with Android 2.0 or 2.1 when everyone is anxiously anticipating Android 2.2. For the sake of geeks and Android lovers everywhere however, the latest and most current OS should be the only option. The real bummer to turn over and over in your head surpasses everything above still — we won’t see any such X10 updates until late this year. So Sony is effectively killing any chance of success this phone will have. Awesome.

    Oh and also to point out that this is probably the first thing i’ve heard of in a long time that gets a released in the UK/Europe prior to a US release. So stop whining.

    Yeah so all the “geeks and Android lovers” will be let down, but who gives a fuck? Ultimately, its not really the system that matters. Whats really gonna change THAT MUCH between 2.1 and 2.2 to make it oh so much better?

    This is just a useless troll of an article.

      Well, any upgrade past 1.5 would be most helpful. And the point of the article isn’t about the difference between 2.1 and 2.2, it’s about the BS of releasing a flagship device with software that is well over a year old amongst several newer updates. That’s the useless part…
