Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Android 2.1 update promised for Q4 2010

Sony Ericsson have confirmed that their XPERIA X10 - together with the XPERIA X10 mini and X10 mini pro - will all get an update to Android 2.1, though owners will have to wait until Q4 2010 before they see it.  The new firmware - which is being billed as an upgrade to UXP or Sony Ericsson's "User Experience Platform" - will also bring with it HD video recording, as on the Vivaz, for the X10, together with other media-centric tweaks.

The Daily Slash: April 16th 2010

The Daily Slash: April 16th 2010

Here we are at the end of the week, and don't you feel better for it? Thanks for sticking it out with us. In tonight's Daily Slash, we've got a nice mix of interesting stories, so we'll have to jump right into it. First up, in the Best of R3, we've got something like an official statement about Android 2.1 for Sprint; Steve Jobs has his own style of PR; and finally a phone like the Samsung Galaxy S heading to T-Mobile. And then in the dredge 'net, shrimp and glass may be the next best thing in medical; rollerblades are so yesterday; the XPERIA X10 can't do multitouch, but it's getting it anyway; and finally, Apple's getting sued.

The Daily Slash: April 13th 2010

Tuesday is one of the days that, the moment it starts, you're wondering how fast it's going to end. After all, it's the day before Wednesday, and hopefully that means you're half way done with your work week. That's one of the reason we're so happy to bring you the Daily Slash, where we can let you wind down with the day's ending topics, so you can feel rejuvenated for your hump day challenges. As for what's on tonight's platter, which of course we focus on the Best of R3 first, is an Android-based handset that's coming direct from a wireless carrier, the latest and greatest when it comes to virtual desktops for your iPad, and the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 gets reviewed. And then in the 'net, we've got new chips from Intel, an Iron Man 2 goodie that's great for all ages, a hoodie with a little bit of light, and finally one of the greatest looking eBooks we've ever seen. So let's not waste any more time, shall we?

iPad gets up close & personal with Dell Mini 5

iPad gets up close & personal with Dell Mini 5

We obviously love all of our gadgets equally here at SlashGear, and wouldn't dream of playing favorites, but when someone suggests bringing the toys together and having a good old fashioned comparison photo shoot then count us in.  We found ourselves clutching an iPad up close to Dell's Mini 5 and a host of smartphones this weekend, and since they're not exactly in common circulation we thought you might like to see the end results.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will never have multitouch

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will never have multitouch

I mentioned earlier this morning that the Sony Ericsson X10 is up for pre-order on the Vodafone network in the UK. We have also posted our own review of the X10 here at SlashGear. Sony Ericsson is running a consumer research program centered on the handset, and one of the first questions they've had to field is exactly what happened to multitouch support.  The answer doesn't bode well, either; apparently the X10 lacks support both at the software and hardware level.

XPERIA X10 Review

XPERIA X10 Review

If it feels like it's a long time since we first saw the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, that's because it really has been. First announced back in November 2009, and only now approaching the market, the X10 runs the risk - like other Sony Ericsson smartphones, it has to be said - of making promises that prove underwhelming by the time it delivers on them. With handsets like the Nexus One already on the market, is there still a place for the XPERIA X10? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 hands-on

MWC 2010 isn't our first encounter with the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10; after all, we joined the company in London back in November 2009 for the official launch of the Android smartphone.  What it is, though, is a good chance to catch up with a very much more optimized build.  The XPERIA X10's debut was marred by jittery performance and sluggishness in the company's custom apps, Mediascape and Timescape, leaving us somewhat unconvinced about the handset.  Happily - and handily, since Sony Ericsson tell us the X10 is mere weeks from launch in the UK - the current build is far more impressive.

Biggest surprise about the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini and X10 mini pro?  Just how small the new Android smartphones are in the plastic.  We grabbed some hands-on time with both earlier today, and while they don't have the original X10's eye-catching 4-inch display they go some way to making up for it with extreme pocket-friendliness.  Check out the live photos and video demos after the cut.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini and X10 mini pro shrink Android

Remember Robyn, the compact version of Sony Ericsson's XPERIA X10 that we saw recently?  Well, the company has made it - the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini - official, along with a QWERTY-toting sibling, the XPERIA X10 mini pro.  Both smartphones run Android 1.6, complete with Sony Ericsson's Timescape and Mediascape apps, together with a 2.55-inch QVGA touchscreen and 3G models with both 900/2100 HSPA and 850/1900/2100 HSPA variants.
