Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Update: PC Companion Review and Problems

The latest Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 software update is called ‘PC Companion 2.0’ and has been out a while now and we are calling out to all X10 handset users who have downloaded to let us know what you think.

The PC Companion is a simple software update that acts as a portal to Sony Ericsson and operator features and applications, online user service connections, support and user guides and you can download and add more applications when made available by Sony Ericsson or the operator.

If you have not downloaded this software yet we thought we should let you know that you will need: Internet broadband connection, 500 MB free hard disk space, Intel Pentium 4, 3.6 GHz or equivalent AMD processor, 2 GB RAM, 1 available USB 2.0 port and USB cable and Microsoft Windows XP SP2 (32 bit), Vista (32/64 bit) or Windows 7 (32/64 bit).

For more information about the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 software update please visit the official Sony Ericsson website, scroll down below if you have already downloaded this software and let us know how you are getting along and of course if you have any problems at all we would love to know about them.

    great review. love my x10. my wife just bought us 2 for our anniversary and we are so wrapped up in these. so far this year, these are my favorite unlocked 3g phones. they are practical, easy to use, the touch screen is really responsive and the games keep us busy on long trips. much better than our old unlocked htc phones. the email and gps are great for helping me get around and keep in touch with my clients. when i first got these i thought they would just be fun to play with but they are perfect for my company too. our daughter loves her unlocked android phones for the facebook and the apps, she is on her phone almost all day and is just obsessed with them too. the camera is great for her taking pictures of her and her friends, also my wife likes the recorder for all the concerts she goes too. we also got our phone unlock codes and blackberry unlock codes for free too so that was cool. the battery life is long enough to last me all day too which is cool and the speaker phone is loud enough to hear when im driving. the web surfing helps me run my fantasy football team too. got our last couple unlocked new phones at gsmallover.com 2 thumbs way up

    almost all of my mp3 files got ruined after I installed PC Companion. These were original files that i copied from my own cd's, and after I installed this somehow I cant play them. It says that windows media player does'nt recognice them anymore. (also tried with vlc player and a bunch of other programs) Has anyone else had this problem? Love the phone exept for this, it's going to take me ages to get all of my songs back on my computer, and its got me a bit furious…

      Same problem here – My X10 will not connect to PC using PC Companion or the Update software I keep getting “device not recognised” as an error. Surely connecting to a PC should be a simple process but not with Sony Ericsson its a nightmare!
