Android 2.1 for Xperia X10 handsets finally released in the UK

It took longer than anticipated but, the Android 2.1 update has finally been released by Sony Ericsson for the Xperia X10 in the UK. This comes five days after the update was initially released for the Nordic market. The feature set remains the same.

The update is of course however, just for generic/unbranded handsets at this time. If your handset is branded to a specific network, you’ll have to wait until the network is ready to release the update, which can vary network to network. Also the update is only being rolled out for the Xperia X10 at the moment, with the Xperia X10 Mini and Mini Pro following very shortly.
