Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Android 2.1 update promised for Q4 2010

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.

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.

SE XPERIA X10 mini & mini pro: small phones, sizeable prices

SE XPERIA X10 mini & mini pro: small phones, sizeable prices

How much would you pay for a miniature Android smartphone?  Sony Ericsson are hoping the answer is "plenty", as recently revealed pricing for their XPERIA X10 mini and XPERIA X10 mini pro handsets in Europe suggests.  The two phones may only have 255-inch displays but you're looking at €300 or more.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 hands-on

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.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini & mini pro hands-on

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

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.

Android 2.0.1 dual-boot XPERIA X1 hack [Video]

Android 2.0.1 dual-boot XPERIA X1 hack [Video]

Over at xda-developers they're pathologically addicted to getting software to run on devices it was never intended to, and fed up of waiting for Sony Ericsson's debut into the Android ecosystem, the XPERIA X10, they've focused instead on getting Android onto an earlier phone.  Normally the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 is found playing nicely with Windows Mobile, but you can now dual-boot it with that and Android 2.0.1.

Sony Ericsson Robyn (aka XPERIA 10 mini?) caught in wild

Sony Ericsson Robyn (aka XPERIA 10 mini?) caught in wild

Now here's an interesting little leak for Sony Ericsson aficionados: GSMArena have been sent a couple of in-the-wild shots of what's tipped to be the Sony Ericsson Robyn (presumably an internal codename), a mini version of the XPERIA X10.  Details on the new smartphone are scant, though we know it has a touchscreen and runs Android.

Canada’s Rogers claim Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 for Q2 2010 North America debut

Canada’s Rogers claim Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 for Q2 2010 North America debut

Canadian carrier Rogers Wireless has become the first to announce it will be offering the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10, though neither carrier nor company are yet saying exactly when the Android smartphone will arrive.  Set to go on sale sometime in Q2 2010 - later than Sony Ericsson told us back at the handset's launch - the XPERIA X10 will be a Rogers exclusive in the country, and will apparently "make its North American debut first in Canada".

Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

Sony Ericsson Nexus UX Platform WebSDK released for Android & Symbian Foundation development

We may be giving Sony Ericsson a darn good scolding on the one hand for their XPERIA X10 hijinks, but we're a little more interested by their new WebSDK for Android and Symbian Foundation devices.  The Sony Ericsson WebSDK promises a metaphorical hand-holding for developers hoping to have their wares nestle up against the company's own apps, whether that be on the XPERIA X10 or the SE Satio.  It's called Nexus, seemingly the official title for the UX platform Sony Ericsson were talking about with regards the X10.
