Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Android 2.1 update delayed

Xperia X10 users have to wait for Android 'Eclair' 2.1

The sweets are late in coming... Eclair is still in the works for Xperia X10 users.

While many other handsets are getting their Android 2.2 Froyo updates rolled out to them, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, X10 Mini and Mini Pro users are still using Android 1.6 as their 2.1 Eclair update has been delayed.

The X10 line-up was expected to get the long-awaited update in Q3 2010, but according to Sony Ericsson, the end of October is a more likely time when the updates will come out.

Sony Ericsson's Rikard Skogberg said: "We are of course not happy about the change of launch timing but we have had to spend some additional time on the software to really make sure we roll-out with the right quality and user experience."

When the updates roll out, X10 users will get Android 2.1, and the Xperia X10 will get HD video recording with continuous autofocus as well.

The wait continues...
