Android Gingerbread Coming to Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Summertime

Well now here’s a bit of good new for all you owners of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, although Sony Ericsson some time ago made it quite clear that the Xperia X10 would not gain OS updates beyond Android Éclair, it appears Sony Ericsson has had a sudden change of heart.

According to the guys over at Android Central, the Sony Ericsson Product Blog has announced they will deliver Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread to the Xperia X10 at the end of Q2 early Q3.

Apparently Rikard Skogberg of Sony Ericsson has said that the company has listened to its customers and thus as a result of developing the Android Gingerbread update for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo it has been able to include the Xperia X10 with a “special development project.”

However, apparently the Android Gingerbread update will not be pushed out over the air but will be downloaded by way of a PC update utility, and once upgraded there is no option for going back.

So there it is Xperia X10 owners, you can at least now look forward to some Gingerbread goodness hitting your device later in the year.
