Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Available
Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is finally available to the Xperia X10 smartphone users. To update the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, which was formerly running Android 2.1 Eclair, users need to connect the device to their computers and employ the company's PC Companion software. Over-the-air updates are so far not available.
Sony Ericsson released the Xperia X10 last year. The device comes with a 4-inch display and 1GHz processor. It has an 8.1-megapixel camera and the ability to record 720p HD video. Last May, Sony Ericsson announced plans to offer Eclair on the device, but that update didn't start rolling out to handsets until October.
At the time, Sony Ericsson didn't plan on bringing Gingerbread to the X10. However, the company said in March that it had "listened to our consumers," and would be bringing the update to the handset, after all.
According to Sony Ericsson, the availability of Gingerbread for user devices "is dependent on operator and/or country" so it cannot provide an "exact date for when the update will be available for you."With the addition of Gingerbread, Xperia X10 owners get Facebook integration across the platform's applications, the ability to use the device as a Wi-Fi hot spot, and tethering. However, users will also lose some features, including the Backup and Restore app and Mediascape.
Sony Ericsson has also intimated that that the contacts and messages saved in the phone memory will be overwritten.
