Sony Ericsson has announced that its Xperia X10 handsets in the UK will be receiving an Android 2.1 update ahead of its projected Q4 release.
The smartphone maker’s UK unit told one of its Twitter followers that an “upgrade to Android 2.1 is due for release before the end of September this year”.
The news will please owners who have been stuck on the Android 1.6 software since the handset’s release in March. Although Android has already moved onto version 2.2 “Froyo”, with reports of a major leap forward to version 3.0 “Gingerbread” already in the works, the update is a step in the right direction.
It has not been revealed if or when the handset will also be receiving the update in North America, where it launched last month.
