Android 2.1 Coming for X10 Phones
End of September, Says Sony
by Quentyn Kennemer on August
Sony Ericsson’s UK Twitter account
today tweeted that Android 2.1 for
their Xperia X10 phones – the X10
itself, the Mini, and the keyboard-
sporting Mini Pro – should all be
seeing Android 2.1 right before
September comes to a close. As their
UK account tipped everyone off to
that piece of news, we can ’t confirm
any other regions will be able to
enjoy the same just yet (including its
new home on AT&T here in the
states), but we can ’t see why they’d
elect to leave anyone out if they
didn ’t absolutely have to.

Normally I charge my phone when I used it as a USB modem so it always gets charge when I use it. In the days of Nickel Cadmium battery, charging it constantly develops memory effect on that type of battery and will make it die quickly, that is the advantage of Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer battery, they don't develop memory effect and it's good to around 1500 charge and discharge cycle. Just keep it charge when you're not using it...
Does anybody experience the same problem that when the battery reaches about 10% (i.e upon discharge) then the phone itself turns off. When I turn it on again, sometimes it stays on, sometimes it turns itself off again in some time (I have not ascertained the logic when it stays on, when it does not).
As most of the time the battery level is far from critical level (i.e 1-2%) then it cannot be described as a phone self protection. Or can it be?
Kind regards to anyone who answers me :)

First. you need a program called PDAnet or Easy Tether to use your X10 as a USB modem. I am using PDAnet for that function, haven't tried Easy Tether, just Google it, you will find it. For the Timescape, I'm not too sure why it's doing that, but are you sure your phone connect via 3G, is the 3G logo there, near the battery indicator? If not, it might be using GPRS/Edge connection, and it will time-out, before it can get all the required data for the first time it connects to the service. Hope this help...

Good News for X10 owners...
Sony Ericsson Spain has confirmed on their Facebook channel that the Android 2.1 (Eclair) update for the Xperia X10 will launch during week 38 (20th to 26th September). That fits with the “end of Q3” timeline we’ve been given previously – it’s good to know that this date still appears to be intact. No other details are hinted at, however, we’ll keep you posted with further developments. (Copied from one website)
any free OS upgrade and jailbreak/modifying tool for Xperia X10? samsung galaxy S seems to be using a newer version of android os
hi guys! im using this phone for quite sometime. and yup the battery is a big problem. advice is always turn off your wi-fi or 3g connection if not in use.
2nd is the keypad yeah i find it hard also using the android keyboard. but recently i have download a new keypad in the market. and u can choose iphone htc android and more keypad on the application...
you can also make ur interface looks like a iphone if your tired in timescape home.
all in all i really love tis phone... although im planning to get iphone 4 also. still tis phone rocks. i can download song that i want here anytime anywhere, and as well as video on youtube... so its really great.. and its is the phone with the best screen...
AUVIE, 30 Aug 2010i just bought it. but i cant connect it with my pc. can anybody tell me which pc suite will it... moreIt's not the PC Suite, you need PC Companion, it is in the SD card but the version is an old one but will work. Download the new version from SE website...
Yes, the touchscreen quality is good and responsive. the camera is awesome. The only problems i find with this phone is that the speaker isn't that loud even when maxed out, and the battery dies quickly in the beginning, so u might have to charge it and let the battery drain a couple times first. Also for texting the standard keyboard sucks. Make sure to hold on to the place where you are writing your message and switch it to android keyboard. All in all its a good phone with good games etc. I would recommend it for someone who needs a phone with a good camera, unlimited social networking, and calling. this is not a phone designed for texting like a blackberry. if u need a texting phone get a blackberry instead of this or you'll regret it.
