abhi, 03 Mar 2011Sorry to say this but SE said that starting from Xperia Arc they will not repeat the mistakes ... morewell all i want SE to give dual touch in there old phones so that i could play games which require dual touch otherwise i will buy XPERIA ARC :D

But I can guarantee that new Xperias will the very 1st with updates. Xperia Arc, neo, pro & play will already ship with latest & greatest 2.3 & morover at CES 2011 when Xperia Arc was unveiled some Arc phones were spotted running android 2.4 & a video too leaked showing 2.4 on Xperia Arc.
So, that shows that they r already working ahead of others in providing updates for their android lineup. SE has also replaced the super heavy Mediascape with lighter mediapane & toned down timescape to make it more easy for them to provide updates.
Considering all these things it's a safe bet to say that SE will be one of the best this yr in terms of updates.

And who says that SE didn't accept their mistakes? SE is the only company which officially accepted the huge mistakes it made while providing updates for X10. Haven't u read the interview of SE's ceo where they officially accepted their mistakes ??? This interview again made me respect SE more bcoz at least they r taking the responsibility for what they did & publicaly promising that it won't happen again.
you right x10 is exellent phone for 280 euro same price of galaxy ace but it could be brillient wiith froyo and best phone in this price range it not a big expectation it is for the good of se
as long as i can still froth at the mouth over lara croft pumping a big weapon into her advorsaries im happy!
I think it's safe to say that Sony Ericsson have learned their lesson from the update story of X10. Which is why future updates on all of the new handsets will not have the same problem. This doesnt excuse the bad decision to not update X10 to Froyo, I know this. But genuinely the new Xperias have had the whole UI and OS designed differently to accomodate updates not only to Android but SE's own interface on top, allowing one or the other to be updated effortless.
To any unhappy X10 customers, it is a big shame and if I was a customer I would probably be pissed off. But seriously!!! Ease off the blogs. The time you spent writting here so many times, you could have easily spent earning money to buy a different handset if you were unhappy with it.
Sony Ericsson is and always will be a fantastic handset manufacturer, that like some others will make mistakes... but unlike others will admit them!
I have an X10 mini pro. I waited ages for the 2.1 update but I got it. And sinse then, my phone has been updated twice more (not the OS itself).
Now, except from the speed of the phone and a few logo icons change, nothing else is really different from when I had 1.6. Seriously, what is your problem with Xperias? Would you rather SE rush the updates and it be buggy and laggy? Or for them to take their time to get it perfect and brilliant quality?
I'm happy with the update service I got with SE, so I think I might upgrade to more SE in the future. With most of you, it's just "I want!" If Google brought out OS 2.4 and it was NO different from 2.3, most of you would still want it!
Well done, SE, and good luck with the future, I say!
abhi, 03 Mar 2011Keep consoling urself with these jokes. X10 performed way beyond what one could expect from ... moreyou know what NOKIA is even having harder time then sony in giving updates as they not only have to satisfy symbian customers by keep on giving updates but also to concentrate on meego and windows phone 7 but they are not running away from their responsibility like sony ericsson,they are keeping the symbian ,they are trying to make the experience better for their old customers who have taken the symbian based phone and also working on windows mobile and meego ,so the excuse of sony that "it was our first android mobile phone ,so we can't provide future updates " is just a silly excuse by sony ericsson,
Most of you people make me smile, most of the comments posted are by those you had problems with their handset or were just misguided by the salesman.
I sell phones, all brands, and if we just take the numbers SE still is great quality.
Most people expect too much or just don't know how to choose a phone. I own the X10 among others phones, and not having 2.2 doesn't change a thing, all my apps work, multi-touch isn't that important. And I work with my phone it's not just a toy to show off.
All brands have their ups and downs, but most people/customers just like to argue.
It's not about the hardware, it's about people knowing what they're getting and what they NEED.
I like to go from one post to another, because very few are realy interesting !!!
abhi, 03 Mar 2011Keep consoling urself with these jokes. X10 performed way beyond what one could expect from ... moreno offense our very good indian friend who supports x10 :P ,but how would you feel when you spent 35000 INR on that phone on which SE doesn't give a damn about ?millions of people buyed XPERIA X10 when it was costly around Rs 35000 and you know this better then me and now x10 is left behind with just a piece of junk 2.1 android os with no multi touch, screw you and screw all the other who support SE for there efforts of not giving updates like 2.2 or 2.3 android os to their customers,and also screw me and millions of people like me who made the mistake of buying sony ericsson android os based phone,i am sorry for everything because sony wont say sorry for anything and would never take any responsibility for its poor update service
[deleted post]Keep consoling urself with these jokes.
X10 performed way beyond what one could expect from the very 1st android phone from any company.
btw... X10 isn't overpriced anymore. In india it is selling at around 20000 INR = $450(unlocked/carrier free) which is much less than what HTC, samsung or any other companies r selling their phones for.
