Whilst Sony Ericsson are still trying to decide whether or not current Xperia X10 and X10 mini owners will ever see Android 2.2 (Froyo), it seems that at least part of developer team has started working on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). What is not known, however, is if this work relates to current or future Sony Ericsson handsets.
Simon Walker, the Head of the Developer Program for Sony Ericsson, recently tweeted the following: “Android Gingerbread come out last week finally! Too much delay Google. Busy weeks to come for me and the team, but all worth it big time!” It’s difficult to know whether we’re reading too much into it, but it confirms recent noises coming out of SE HQ that they want to start being at the cutting edge of firmware revisions. Let’s hope that Sony Ericsson has indeed turned the corner.
