  • Petition started for Froyo update on Xperia X10

    Google announced Android 2.2 (Froyo) last week with some significant improvements over 2.1. I can’t be the only X10 owner feeling a tinge of jealousy knowing that we will only get the Android 2.1 update at the end of the year, by which time the next major version of Android (Gingerbread) would have been released. […]

  • Sony Ericsson confirms no multitouch for X10 mini

    Sony Ericsson has confirmed that it has no intentions to implement multitouch gestures on either the X10 mini or X10 mini pro. This is despite the fact that the X10 mini may have the hardware capable of at least dualtouch gestures such as pinch-and-zoom. Timo Maassmann from the SE Product Blog says that enabling multitouch […]

  • Rebranding your Xperia X10 [Tutorial]

    Flashing the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 that was originally running X10i firmware to X10a (and vice versa) leads to a problem that means SEUS will not be able to update the phone for future updates. If you have this problem, we have posted a short tutorial below that will get your handset rebranded. If you […]

  • SE ends Xperia X10 multitouch speculation once and for all

    Despite the efforts of brave modders trying to determine whether the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10’s display is capable of multitouch, SE has moved to end speculation on this for good. They have released a statement that says the X10 will never have multitouch capabilities. The statement says that a combination of hardware and software configurations […]

  • Xperia X10 disassembled in mission to end touchscreen debate

    Enterprising modder McKebapp from the xda-developers forums has done what most wouldn’t dare to. He invalidated his warranty by disassembling his Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, just because he was bored “waiting for root on my mobile.” The whole process sounded relatively straight forward. Once the screws were removed, the case parts were clipped together and […]

  • SE promises Xperia X10 updates throughout life of phone

    Sony Ericsson will continue to support the Xperia X10 Android smartphone throughout the lifespan of the handset. Despite some of the recent criticisms regarding Android 1.6, it says that a big update will land in H2 2010 (most likely a new version of Android) but it won’t stop there and will continue to develop for […]

  • Xperia X10 Android update in September, along with multitouch?

    The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will be seeing an Android update in September according to a SE rep speaking at a press event for the phone. The employee said that a “very big update” was due in September, without citing exactly what this will entail (Android 2.1 or a newer Android flavour). Somewhat curiously the […]

  • Improving your Xperia X10 battery life

    The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handset has now been released in a number of markets and one of the biggest negative points I’m hearing on the handset (apart from the keyboard) is its battery life. There’s no denying that the Xperia X10 does drain its battery quickly, even compared to some other Android handsets, however […]

  • Installing the HTC keyboard on the Xperia X10

    One of the biggest gripes I’m hearing on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 relates to keyboard input. People are having problems with letters needing several touches before being recognised as well as inaccurate text entry. Some say that this is just a function of a capacitive display, but personally I have had no problems with […]

  • Xperia X10 does not support hardware multitouch

    One of the most frequently asked questions I get over the Xperia X10 (apart from when Android 2.1 will be supported) relates to its multitouch features. The handset that has already been released in some regions only features single-finger gestures. It was widely believed that gestures such as pinch and zoom would feature when Android […]

  • Xperia X10 user manual uncovered

    The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handset is not due to land until Q1 2010, however a draft manual has been unearthed from those helpful guys at the FCC. It’s more of a user guide than a fully fledged manual but it still covers 40 pages of the phones features. We’ve painstakingly attached each page for […]

  • Xperia X10 screen supports 16m colours; Android 1.6 limits it to 65k

    Since the Xperia X10 was released, there has been much speculation and banter over the handsets screen quality. The 4-inch display has seemed ‘washed-out’ in certain pictures, which prompted a number of questions on the official Sony Blog as well as the SE Developer Forums. Sony Ericsson didn’t help themselves in the matter by releasing […]
