X10 gets some Gingerbread

Sony Ericsson has released an update to their former flagship Xperia X10 handset, which brings with it Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3 amongst other new features.

SE has only just updated the operating system after it was announced back in March that the Xperia X10 would be receiving the latest OS, where the handset completely missed out on an upgrade to Android 'Foyo' 2.2 at the time.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 arrived in the UK back in March of 2010, with a 4-inch FWVGA capacitive touch screen and an 8.1 megapixel camera, whilst being powered by a 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1GB of internal storage.

Xperia X10 shipped with the older Android 'Donut' 1.6, which was updated to 'Éclair' 2.1 in October of that year but no news was forthcoming about 'Froyo' 2.2.

Besides bringing the latest Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3.3 to the Xperia X10, there is also Facebook Xperia inside for better social networking integration, the ability to use the phone as a WIFI hotspot, a music player with an equaliser, USB sharing for data connection, photo widgets with one click access to pictures and a sorting tray for preferred applications.

The update is currently available for SIM free and unlocked Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handsets, but will be deployed to network depended phones within time.
