People at Sony Ericsson are too much busy in delivering updates for Xperia X10 to Gingerbread. According to company’s blog, they have already started testing of the Gingerbread update but still it is not the final version.
According to company’s latest news, Sony Ericsson will not remove Xperia camera app which is really a nice app and people love to use that. As posted in the blog, video of Xperia X10 with Gingerbread looks really nice and phone works really smooth with Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Also as declared on the blog, Xperia X10 Mini and other related devices will not get this update as they have very less RAM memory compare to the memory needed for Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Phone will have update to Android 2.3 and it will also get few extra updates which may include a dedicated zone for social media.
Update will be available around August and users will get it as soon as it gets with the carrier they are using.
