New firmware update available for Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 (no Android 2.1 yet)

Earlier this year, Sony Ericsson announced that its Xperia X10 handsets would be updated to Android 2.1 eventually.

Until this happens, the original X10 gets a special software update that won’t change the version of Android it’s running. Instead, the update “focuses on improving the general performance, speed and responsiveness” and brings a free back up and restore app.

Starting today, the firmware update for the X10 is live in “selected markets” (SE doesn’t say which markets exactly). The updated will be gradually rolled-out in all markets over the next few weeks.

The software update is made over the air (OTA), so X10 owners will receive a message in the notification bar when it’s available. Alternatively, users can check out www.sonyericsson.com/update to complete the update via a PC.
