Sony Ericsson is offering its Xperia X10 users the opportunity to upgrade their phones with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For upgrading the X10, which was once Android 2.1 Eclair, users have to connect the phone to your computer and use the PC software company Companion. Over-the-air updates are not available.

According to Sony Ericsson, the Gingerbread availability for the user devices "is operator dependent and / or country" and therefore cannot provide an "exact date of when the update is available for you."

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 launched last year. The smart phone comes with a 4-inch screen and a 1GHz processor. It has the camera of 8.1 megapixels and the capacity to record 720p High Definition video. Previous May, Sony Ericsson released plans to offer in the Eclair device, but the update has not begun to deploy mobile phones until October.

At that time, Sony Ericsson did not intend to bring Gingerbread for the X10. However, the firm said in March that he had "listened to our consumers" also they would update the phone, after all.

With the adding of Gingerbread, owners of Xperia X10 achieve integration of Facebook applications platform, the possibility of using the device as an access point Wi-Fi, and immobilization. However, users also lose some features, including Restore and Backup app and Mediascape. Company also said that messages and contacts stored in phone memory will be replaced.
