Most everyone who has the Sony X10 smartphone, is very disappointed that Sony is not updating the X10 smartphone until the forth quarter of this year. By then it will be outdated, so it really doesn't make an sense. Sony needs to focus on the Android experience and not their own Timescape and Mediascape, which BTW is next to useless. I'll probably do a Q&A video on this a little later to express my views on what us Sony X10 smartphone users want, which is updates to the Android OS, firmware and more.. (not Timescape and Mediascape).

"To:  Sony Ericsson

We would like to suggest a path for the future development of the Sony Ericsson (Xperia X10, Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 mini pro)

Some recent developments on the Android platform have made the current OS software 1.6 outdated. Most of the current products sold by your competitors (e.g HTC, Motorola and Samsung) are currently running on 2.1 and some are already getting the new OS software 2.2.

The OS software version 2.1 has been announced for the end of the current year to be available on your Xperia x10 line, but the 2.1 update will still put your product behind the competition since even older devices will be running OS software 2.2 at that time.

The hardware specification of the X10 line is clearly impressive and should in theory be able to be quite competitive. Sadly, the hardware is extremely limited by the software, preventing us users from being able to utilise the full capacity of your device. Furthermore we are unable to make most of the applications available to Android users, since the minimum requirement for many applications is version 2.1.

Wireless technology is an integral part of everyday life and we as the consumer would like to request the new Android OS version 2.2 to be implemented instead of the 2.1.

We believe it would serve Sony Ericsson's interest as well, making your product competitive and expend your user base. As you know the Android platform is rapidly growing and update is the key of that success.

We hope you will understand our concern and deman

Sincerely,

The Undersigned"

Well, I suspect most thought Sony would let common sense rule and release update to 2.2 ASAP! Go figure, right :/
