Latest Firmware update for the Xperia

Sony Ericsson has launched the latest firmware for its Xperia line of smartphones. The targeted models are the Xperia X10, Xperia X10 Mini, Xperia X10 Mini Pro and the Xperia X8. A couple of weeks ago these units availed of the Android 2.1 upgrade.  The latest upgrade is not available in all areas at the moment though since it will be available depending on your country and operator. Those who live in areas that still do not have an upgrade option for Android 2.1 have to wait a little bit longer.

The latest firmware upgrade is an addition to the already existing Android 2.1 but you won’t be getting this over the air. To get this upgrade you would need your PC and the Sony Ericsson update Service application running. Just connect your phone to your PC and the software will check your firmware and do the necessary changes if needed.

Here’s what to expect from the latest firmware upgrade

–          Changes in the in-call volume

–          Faster Mediascape and Timescape

–          Keyboard facelift

–          You won’t  be able to root the phone after the update

Owners of the Xperia line from Sony Ericsson would be pleased to know that the company will be releasing updates to the phone for up to two years since it was launched.
