Xperia X10 Getting Gingerbread Update

Despite telling the world that it wouldn’t happen, Sony Ericsson has changed its tune, announcing that the ageing Xperia X10 will in fact be getting an update to Gingerbread.

In a global announcement last Friday night, Sony Ericsson confirmed that generic X10 handsets would get the Gingerbread update in the middle of the year, either end of Q2 or early Q3.

That said, there’s no guarantee that the carriers will rush the updates out to local X10 owners, but it’s good to see that Sony Ericsson is seeming to take its new philosophy of ensuring its handsets have the latest software seriously.
