Sony Ericsson updates Xperia X10
Firmware patch posted
Sony Ericsson has begun releasing a firmware update for the Android-based Xperia X10 handset - reviewed here.
The new software is being pushed out over the air on a territory by territory, operator by operator basis, the company indicated. It is available in the UK to download, here.
According to SE, the update "focuses on improving the general performance, speed and responsiveness" of the smartphone. For example, it said, speed improvements have been made to messaging and the camera.
The release also includes a free back up and restore application so you’ll "never lose your settings and information". ®
2.1 has already been announced
...but is a couple of months away. I suspect the speed of updates from Google is proving to be the problem for manufacturers here...
Ah, not just me then
Never mind this firmware release, we VF users are still waiting for the *previous* release.
This has been an epic fail on behalf of VF here, and judging on the silence - or stonewalling - by anyone you speak to at VF, and not just on the e-forum, it's not something that they appear to care about rectifying.
So, El Reg, any chance of doing some asking on our behalf and getting some press about it?
But what about...
Nice, but what about moving away from the old 1.6 and supplying an update to 2.2 now that would be nice for a so called top of the range phone...
Not if you have a Vodafone 'andset
All the vodafone users are still waiting for this to release. Imagine my joy at seeing this after hundreds of posts on the VF e-forum.
