No Android update for Xperia X10 in the UK today

If you’ve been waiting patiently for Sony Ericsson UK to release the Android 2.1 update for the Xperia X10 range of handsets, then I’m sorry to say but, you’ll have to wait a few more days till it’s released. After not hearing anything from the Sony Ericsson UK team since October 29th on Twitter, they’ve now replied to several tweets, all regarding the Android 2.1 update.

Android 2.1 was released yesterday for Nordic handsets and was assumed that the UK would also follow, either the same day, or today at the latest. Sony Ericsson UK have however said that there are some delays for the UK and further testing needs to be done before the update is released on to UK handsets. However it should be within the next few days, so we should see it before the second week of November. This is still disappointing though.

There is no definitive date and over at the Sony Ericsson blog, Rikard Skogberg has said he isn’t able to give specific dates for each “kit” as it does depend on “the status of all approvals needed (both internal and external)”. He did however reveal that today Android 2.1 kits were released for Russia, Singapore, Indonesia and many African countries. Other countries, including the UK hopefully, will continue to roll out during the week and the rest of the month.
