Sony Ericsson X10 mini/pro and X8 to get ANT+ fitness support in Q1 2011

ANT+Sony Ericsson has announced that several existing Android phones including the X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8 will support the ANT+ communication standard by the end Q1 2011. This will enable the phones to connect to a wide range of fitness and medical sensors including heart rate monitors and pedometers.

This makes SE the first mobile manufacturer to include ANT+ support. Future handsets such as the Xperia arc will also have support, although strangely there is no mention of support for the current X10 flagship. Marcus Hansson from SE Developer World talks about this development in the video below.

There’s no support for the X10 because ANT+ requires special hardware, it’s not a bluetooth inplimentaton. The X10 mini and X10 pro DO have the hardware installed already, just not activated.

I’m so glad I’ll get to toss my X10 at some of the “big guys” at SE sooner rather than later

While I’m really pissed at SE over the delay a to 2.1 and the dead end in official Android updates from here I’m really happy about this bit of news. I already use my x10 mini pro to track all my runs and rides so happy that I can get ant+ kit as there’s not so much choice for Bluetooth devices.

This said, as soon as someone comes up with a smooth root and update to a cooked rom route for the x10 mini I’m leaving the stock firmware behind…
