After much anticipation, Sony Ericsson finally posted the Android 2.1 updates for Xperia products on their Product Blog earlier.
Sony Ericsson X10, Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 Mini Pro users can now enjoy HD video recording , new back up and restore application and 5 homescreens for apps, widgets, shortcuts and folders – some of the features that comes with the Android 2.1 OS upgrade.
I’m still installing the 2.1 update on my X10i and will be updating this post once I’m done.
Meanwhile, here’s the step by step video on how to upgrade your Sony Ericsson Xperia handset to Android 2.1 OS.
With three downloads (PC Companion, Backup and Restore app, OS update), it’s not as elegant as we want it to be but Xperia X10 users can’t complain. Let us know how your updated Xperia X10 experience turns out.
UPDATED: I tried upgrading my X10i following the instructions from SE website twice but still didn’t get a 2.1 upgrade although the pc companion says that everything is up to date. Looks like the 2.1 upgrade will just work on X10s with nordic roms.
UPDATE 2: I finally updated my X10i to run Android 2.1 OS .
