When the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8 first hit the market, many phone geeks ran out and bought the smartphone. If you were one of the folks that picked the thing up and have been waiting for an update from Android 1.6 that it shipped with you are in luck.
Sony Ericsson has announced that it is now rolling out the Android 2.1 update to the Xperia X8. The update for the X8 adds the same features that the X10 got in its update. When the update will land for you depends on where you live and on the SI-number of your device.
Sony Ericsson says that the reason the update isn’t available everywhere at once is because the approvals needed to offer the update took time to complete. There is a complete list of SI-numbers that are approved for the update already on the official SE post here.
