Xperia X10Whilst us Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 owners await the official Android Gingerbread 2.3 update to appear (hopefully next month), speculation is building on what the update may bring. Interestingly, there are rumours abound in a number of forums that suggest the X10 bootloader will be unlocked. We’ve got no hard evidence on this, just some intensifying chatter.

Also, a recent hands-on video of the update in Thailand appears to confirm that the update will bring 16 million colour support along with a new kernel. We don’t read Thai, but around the middle of the video, it appears to show the number 16 next to the 4-inch screen specs. It could be something else, it could also be a mistake, but sure enough we’ll find out soon. Check out the video and pics below.
