Sony Ericsson has stuck to their word. The Android 2.1 firmware update is hitting handsets as we speak. As expected, the update is hitting those mobiles running Nordic first with other regions (or kits as SE likes to call them) to get the update shortly after. We have downloaded the Android 2.1 update ourselves and we can confirm that SE is rolling out firmware with build number 2.0.A.0.504.
it’s a bit too early to give any definitive impressions. However, we’re glad to see that Sony Ericsson has introduced a six-step starter guide that takes you through the process of adding your Google Account, sim contacts, time/date details as well as wireless and Timescape setup. The theme used throughout the interface is a darker blue than the Donut firmware, which is nice as it provides greater contrast with the white fonts making it easier to read. If you haven’t got it yet, hang tight, the update is definitely here for real. Click through for a screen cap of Android 2.1 goodness.
