Sony Ericsson UK: Android 2.1 coming to Xperia X10 in September

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 has some good things going for it, but running Android 1.6 isn't one of them. However, it looks like an OS update is coming soon.

If you own a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, you're probably not too fond of the fact that it's stuck running Android 1.6. Sony Ericsson's projected Q4 release for an Android 2.1 update doesn't sit well either when other devices are already getting Android 2.2, but there might be some good news on the horizon.

Responding to one of its Twitter followers, Sony Ericsson UK said that the Android 2.1 update is due for release before the end of September, ahead of the original Q4 timeframe. The company didn't provide any further details at this time, and we're not sure if this also applies to the recently launched AT&T Xperia X10, but we can hope.
