Sony Ericsson has begun rolling out a minor software upgrade for the Xperia X10 Android phone, bringing multi-touch support to the handset for the first time.
The staggered update is being pushed out over the air or can be done using SE’s proprietary download solution PC Companion.
As well as pinch-to-zoom functionality in the web browser and on Google Maps, the update adds a number of performance optimisations and bug fixes for an all round better smartie experience, plus new language options: Arabic, Farsi, Thai and Hebrew.
However, it’s not all good news. Owners of the X10 Mini and Mini Pro variants, whose screens come in at a very compact 2.5-inches, and the X8 are being frozen out of multi-touch, although they will get the other features.
And they’ll also get support for ANT+ technology, which monitors your heart rate and enables you to use your phone with a pedometer while you’re out running.
