Sony Ericsson will begin rolling out the first Android update for the new range of Xperia handsets next week. There has been one minor update for the phones since the initial release on April 1st. The new update will upgrade the Android OS to 2.3.3 from 2.3.2 and should hopeful fix many of the issues which have been found on the handsets, particularly the video and audio sync issue while recording videos.

As well as updating the version of Android to 2.3.3, the update will also bring us Facebook Inside Xperia, which will allow a deeper integration between your phone and Facebook. Unbranded handsets will receive the update first and the UK is in line to be one of the first countries to receive the update.
