A new firmware release for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 smartphone was approved yesterday that is leading some to believe the Android 2.1 update is round the corner. PTCRB has a pretty good record of the upcoming firmware releases and now has the new ‘2.0.A.0.453’ firmware as certified [X10a] on their site.
There is nothing to suggest that the 2.0.A.0.453 update is the much-fabled Android 2.1 release, but it is the first firmware certified since 27 July, suggesting that this at least a pre-cursor to the final release if nothing else. It’s also interesting that the naming is very different to previous X10 firmware, all of which began with R, the latest being R2BA026. Hopefully, not too long to find out now. If SE keeps it promise, the update should start rolling it by the end of next week.
