Android 2.2 headed to Xperia X10 in 2011?

While the Xperia X10 recently received the Android 2.1 update, many were hoping it would be Android 2.2, with a petition started months ago for the release of Android 2.2. Now, with 2.1 on most X10’s (subject to country/network) and Android 2.3 on the way, it’s led to many asking questions again about the availability of Android 2.2 on the Xperia X10.

As we’ve learnt in the past, what one Sony Ericsson employee says isn’t necessarily true, however it’s very encouraging none the less. One user sent a message on the Turkish Sony Ericsson support site asking about Android 2.2 on the Xperia X10. The response that was received back (translated) is: “SE X10 will get the Android 2.2 update during the second quarter of 2011. Work is still currently ongoing on version 2.2.” While this is good news for X10 owners, that the Xperia X10 will not remain stuck on Android 2.1, by this time, Android 2.3 will probably be on most top Android devices.
