Sony Ericsson today said the plan for the added features and Android 2.1 update has been revised. The new plan is to start the roll-out from end of October and onwards. Here is more info from Sony Ericsson:
When it comes to what to expect from the updated software all three X10 models will be updated to Android 2.1 and the Xperia X10 will also get HD video recording with continuous auto focus among many other things.
The key changes for the different products are the following:
* HD video recording with continuous auto-focus for high quality videos * Upgrade of the Android platform to Android 2.1 * New back up and restore application, with extended content back up * 5 homescreens for apps, widgets, shortcuts and folders * Social phonebook which automatically syncs contact pictures from Facebook and shows when your friends are online
Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro:
* Improved Bluetooth functionality with support for sending and receiving pictures, contacts and more * New backup and restore application with extended content back up * Automatic synchronization of your contact pictures between Facebook and your phone book * Improved ways of handling pictures, audio, text and numbers in your messages * Upgrade of the Android platform to Android platform 2.1
The update will be made available in a phased roll-out which means that different configuration/language get the update at different times. It will take some additional weeks from end of October before all different kits have the new software available.
