texas mom, 29 Oct 2010did you find the X10 overall better than the Captivate?Yep! Even though Captivate has an updated 2.1 OS (which X10 is gonna receive in a month or so), I was really pissed at captivate's battery performance and music player. X10 solved my problem with some added bonus like - much better look, better camera etc.
texas mom, 29 Oct 2010thank you all for the most excellent information...i think i'm gonna do me shopping then! oh..... moreMy X10 came with a 16 GB microSD card with it, so I depending on where you get the phone, you might get the 16 GB. It really is a great phone. Dont listen to the haters, they are just jeleous.
thank you all for the most excellent information...i think i'm gonna do me shopping then! oh...one last question...i almost forgot about it...what about memory/capacity...guess i need to get some extra storage, huh? (my 3GS is using about 10 GB of my supposed 32)

Actually I replaced my Captivate with an X10. Multitouch will probably not be included in the upcoming 2.1 SW update most probably because of HW limitation. There are so many conflicting rumors about it. Anyway, as you said it's not a dealbreaker. X10 has better camera, battery performance, and other multimedia features compared to captivate. Hope that helps.

Multi-Touch is being worked on. When Sony first created the X10 with 1.6 and the custom UI, Multi-Touch was not 100% functional and was quite buggy, so Sony decided to not include it as they did not want to take away from the expierence. But as they have moved towards 2.1 and yes 2.2, they are finding that a lot of issues 1.6 has with Multi-touch is not present in later version of Android. So while I have played with it and it is not 100%, it is coming along nicely and should be released for the X10 within a year.
Here are some videos that were posted showing how it is coming along.
i'm considering replacing my 3GS with the X10, seems a better phone than the Captivate (i'm ATT customer)...is the lack of multitouch really hardware or software? that maybe an upgrade would resolve? it's not a deal breaker, just wanted to see what the concensus was...i do have 30 days to try it out...appreciate any feedback! thanks

Sony customized it so it included many features that are in 2.0. The phone runs great and is awesome. In Canada, moto has 6 phones nationally available, 1 runs 2.1, the rest are a mix of 1.5 and 1.6 and 3 will never see anything other than 1.5.

pissedoffcustomer, 28 Oct 2010i have it as well just wanted to say that this update is very embarrassing matter by se True, but when I bought the X10, I bought it because I like it. I didn't buy it because of the OS it's running on. Besides it's just a phone and it still function as such, so what's the big deal with an update to 2.1? Will it change my life? Just hype...
Roar..., 28 Oct 2010I bought an X10 so? You're friend is from SE Dev?i have it as well just wanted to say that this update is very embarrassing matter by se
[deleted post]anyway it won't be this month as your rumor said and maybe but very big maybe next month so = expect update at end of year
[deleted post]i heard from a friend of mine phonemaniac ,u will see
i think comparing the samsung wave to the X10, is like comparing shit to gold. samsung is cheap shit Korean while Sony has very good high quality with a brilliant os such as android.
how can i run java apps on this phone
doesnt it support java natively i read that many motorola phones support java midp 2.0 natively
Again let me tell you this, the reason the haters and trolls come here is because they know their products are underestimated and they don't earn half the respect Sony products do.
Well guess what, it's not our problem if you can't afford a Sony. This forums is related to a Sony product, so it makes total sense to speak about our interest in Sony. On the other hand, the trolls that keep advertising for moto and samsung are just in the wrong place, so stop accusing us for being bad and lying, and god knows that you are the bad people and you are the ones that are trying to ruin our forum here.
I dare any one of you trolls to do the same thing in XDA developers or any other respected website, you will be blocked immediately and will be considered a joke that even didn't exist.
Unfortunately since gsmarena is very open, your type of people exist here with no fair punishment.
