Sony Ericsson admits Xperia X10 mistakes; says 2011 will be better

Xperia X10Sony Ericsson has openly admitted that their first foray into Android was not up to scratch. Steve Walker, global head of marketing for Sony Ericsson, said that “the first generation of handsets in our portfolio was about getting the capability out there,” whilst speaking to Pocket-Lint.

He went on to say that when they started designing the handsets back in 2010, nobody really knew how the smartphone market would grow and what would be important for customers. “It’s important to remember that 2010 was the first year for mass market Android handsets. Yes there had been one or two things out from HTC previously, but when we started to design our 2010 handsets in 2008, nobody really knew the dynamics of the Android smartphone market or even what the smartphone market was going to be,” said Walker.

He also went on to say that releasing the Xperia X10 and X10 mini handsets was a huge learning curve for the company, but the company is now much stronger for it. “If we hadn’t done what we did with the X10 and the X10 minis we wouldn’t have been able to do what we’ve done here today,” said Walker. “Last year we didn’t anticipate the strength of feeling that consumers would have towards the Android release. And again that was a learning experience of the first year of mass market Android smartphones”.

Walker was understandably quite buoyant about the 2011 line up. “As we do every year, we’ve taken those learnings and applied them to the new products in the new portfolio. We do think we’ve taken a big step forward for 2011. What we think is different in 2011 is that consumer attention is swinging back to hardware once more. That’s not to say people aren’t focused on software, but that they are a little more in balance now.” Let’s just hope for the company’s sake that they really have learned from their mistakes, let’s also hope that the current Xperia range isn’t completely abandoned after the next multi-touch firmware update.

  1. Mixed messages over all there really, half sounded like they’d realised they need to implement updates quicker/ maintain support for longer. Half sounded like they might just do the same again put a phone out with a moderately high end spec and rely on that alone to bring people in.

  2. so we were experimental customer for them.
    is they want to learn something they should learn to listen to customer`s need

  3. So we get used a guinea pigs and when it doesn’t quite work just get brushed aside for their new customers. This has really damaged SEs reputation. I know a lot of people who are existing SE Android customers and those thinking about who will not be buying another product from them.

    Dont get me wrong. I love my Mini Pro but support is so appalling and to dump you after your handset is less than six months old is disgusting.

    So you have learnt a lot from 2010. So have I, never go SE again.h

  4. What do they want to say with the statement that there will be froyo 2.2 for x10 family, or…
    I do not understand what this means….realy…

  5. No more Sony for me! Once bitten and twice shy.
    Sony Ericsson’s reputation on promises is too bad to be believed any more.

  6. They can only gain my trust by upgrading x10 to 2.2, otherwise i wouldnt touch the arc or any of their phones.

  7. They are leaving the previous clients in midstream to drown and showing greener pastures to the new ones.
    My advice to all: DO NOT BELIEVE IN WHAT THEY SAY. They are liers. Ask any SE X10 owner.

  8. like i said i got this phone for free,if it was not them i would get a another phone for free from another phone company..these android phones are still in child mode not up to par like the iphones,its sad,but i hope they will not drop this phone(x10) because of there newer phones,like this one..hmmmm,its works like crap,slow,slow slow,like it on dial up…and the timescape..plz…it thinks to i hope when it comes out..the arc.its never pay full price on these phones…never,unless they are just about perfect..they are not worth the price,to much head ache….

  9. How can 2011 be a great year when nobody is going to get stung again and buy a SE phone ever again…My biggest regret is not buying a HTC instead…new HTC Desire Hd looks the bizz

  10. I also speak the same.
    I sent an email in which I tell my opinion about stopping update for x10 family.
    That stopping the update will lose millions of sonyericsson buyers…

  11. I hope the Xperia Arc is a dramatic failure and the PSPhone is a major flop. SE deserves nothing more.

  12. i have xperia x10i and mini pro i am not happy this sucks, i went from n97 nokia to these phones, dont know if it was a good idea anymore. i still have a k800i from when they first come out it is great, but SE fix it, 99% of peoploe can not get out of there plans

  13. “Lol, we dun goof’d with the X10 line, and you guys just have to put up with it. We have learned from our mistakes, but we are not going to correct the current ones.”

    Some people just need to the heck.

  14. Really wish people would crying bout this i am dissapointed but hey the x10 is still a good phone!

  15. even now xperia arc dose not have wifi terthring in hs gingerbread ver. always bhind se suckes

  16. well, like many I gave up, sold my x10 and bought a used nexus one – it is great!. I still am a x10 user in that my wife and son have one and I maintain them. The x10 camera and camera setup (still and video) blows the Nexus away ( as it does my canon camera) but that and it’s slightly larger screen is about it. I really do thing if sony had their software chops together – the x10 would be close to the best phone out – there ( the cheap plastically build quality of Samsungs? – not me). But now that I have a nexus one it will be very hard to go back to any phone that has carrier/manufacturer crapware – I will now always have the newest pure android OS – an experience that I think is the best out there. I will keep my eyes on the new sonys but we need the manufacturer to just do straight OS ports. Cheaper easier for them , better for us.

  17. tralala tell me more
    wont belive any word of Se

    SE face of shit
    arc not meet my minimum spec . Specyfication of arc, playstation is below my requiment
    I see you SE maybe in 2012 if not later!

  18. I don’t believe you Sony Ericsson.

    If you have learnt your X10 mistakes, FIX THEM, don’t abandon your X10 customer base and hope we will buy new Sony Ericsson Phones.

    I’m at the start of a new Orange UK contract, I have another 16 months with this phone yet, before I can get another one. If you abandon it so soon, say “you have learnt from your mistakes” but leave me behind anyway, I’m going to leave you behind by buying Samsung or HTC next time around.

    I’ve had issues with Sony Ericsson software before with the K850i blue ring of death, which was a firmware problem that many owners suffered from (see esato), which according to Sony Ericsson, didn’t exist!

  19. The x10 is not the worst phone ever, i’m sure. In fact I really still like mine. But I am as disappointed as every other x10 owner out there. I think it’s great that SE can at least admit making a mistake, but doing better next time is not nearly enough. I’m sure if they wanted to they could make an effort and get us on 2.2, but it probably wouldn’t be profitable enough for them. I got mine just about a month ago as the 2.1 update was being rolled out and could never have guessed that would be the last.

  20. This is really unfortunate… but I realllly like SONY and no Iphone is for me.
    I hope that SE will continue with the updates for the X10 and hope to get the 2.3 update


  21. f you were really sorry about it, then you’d fix it… By maintaining support and updating Android

    No more sony ericsson for me. Once bitten; twice shy.

    Well, unless we get gingerbread in the next two months- which of course is just wishful thinking.

  22. I don’t see why they are being called liars. They have supported the phone for the last 8 months (I know the situation is worse in some territories), and they will continue to support it for a while to come, just not with a new Android, and I think improvements that Sony can make in their UI will make up for the lack of 2.2 (something they never promised)

    I accept the fact that these are the first generation of SE Android smartphones, and the X10 is still a very good phone, and as far as I know, it still has one of the best (if not the best) cameras in the smart phone market, something very important to me.

    I’ve bought from SE for about 6 years now (I have only had 1 non-SE phone) and I am happy with them. The arc looks lovely, and I am sure their 2012 XPERIAs will be even nice, when my contract expires

    Also, when people say they don’t believe that the arc will get timely updates, they have already explained how it will. They have pared back the Rachel UI, and taken away timescape and mediscape from being part of the main UI, allowing quicker updates and an experience closer to vanilla android

  23. Well, it’s not someone admitting they’ll do anything about it… kind of like saying hey suckers, you bought our test products full price!

  24. of course they are a “stronger company for it”… they lied, they marketed and they got our money.. and this product was the only “star” in a failing product range.

    SE conned us

  25. Yes of course 2011 will be better but for whom?
    Of course for us owners of the x10 family, because in 2011 the following will not deceive once again.
    Cheaters from SE …
    SE Never more in my life….

  26. Then as a sign of good will, since they are abandoning the Xperia X10, why not open up the boot loader so we can use custom ROMS. That would bring the Mod Community to this phone and people would be able to use the phone as tey see fit. As phones are orphaned the community will use them. Company’s that support this will gain share as people willl want newer and better but this will make it bettter for all

  27. all us pissed off x10 series suckers need to make sure every review of the new SE phones is accompanied with a reminder of how easily SE cut their losses – if you sign up to a 2 year contract it needs to be with a company you can trust.

  28. Eh… So are they saying that they’ve learned their lesson in the last six days?
    I don’t get it. Their behaviour towards x10 owners doesn’t seem to have changed. Why should I believe that they will act any better with their arc users?
    But like many of you I have the luxury of being in a contract that means I will skip the arc generation of inflamed users. It will be interesting to see how SE have changed.

  29. I think everyone should look at the CES show stoppers for just a moment. Samsung Motorola. LG and HTC all had amazing phones with dual cores and tons of ram. Then look at the arc which is ok but by the time it comes out it will be a repeat of the x10’s joke of a release.

    Something tells me the other brands will have there phone’s out in months. SE talk too much and do very little.

  30. Its clled the economic strategie to say that the hardqare doesnt support 2.3 thats hwy u guys release it with some new things btw u guysay we cant get 2.3 on x10 why is the processor the same? Fucking faggs liers

  31. Perfect timing for this speech to try to rid the negative comments about the x10 and software updates so we would say..ohh lets give them another chance they just screwed us once and it was a mistake and purchase the arc or the new x10 mini..i still don’t buy it i would have to wait for updates pass gingerbread to see how they long it takes for them release and update

  32. come on guys of course we were the trialists

    it was there first android phone. sometimes i think you need to give yourselves a shake when you think the phone should of been the best….. ifs not going to be cos its there FIRST

    but it will get better. its got to.

    and when everyone that bought SE leaves and says we will never buy again, there will be thousands of brand new customers to take your place.

  33. After reading this and hear what they did to us leave without froyo 2.2 who will buy SE
    they gonna deceive them too…
    Die SE u do not deserve to be part of the mobile industry…

  34. Finally Sony Ericsson have admitted that they have made a mistake instead of saying the 2.1 with UXP is better that Vanilla 2.2.
    Well I see this as the first step, the next step is stating what they are going to do about it. I see that they have 3 options.
    1. Do nothing, a mistake is a mistake and thats that.
    2. As a good will gesture update the X10 to 2.2 or 2.3 and remove the timescape / mediascape as with the Xperia Arc
    3. Open the bootloader so we can upgrade to stock Android

    By doing option 1 they will or already have lost there fanbase. Reputation of the company will descrease.

    By doing option 2 Xperia X10 users will understand and will be happy with the good will gesture. Company credence is restored.

    By doing option 3 the Xperia X10 users will see this as a good will gesture although it will be an easy getout for Sony Ericsson. Company credence restored yet again.

    Its pointless them just saying we have made a mistsake and thats it.

  35. well thanks for screwing us over (x10 users) SE.
    i have no intention of buying a SE phone ever again.
    and your claim about how the SE 2.1 update is better than what 2.2 has to offer shows how knowledgeable your engineering team is.

    if your not going to support the x10 anymore at least unlock the bootloader, so people who are actually more capable and skillful than your paid engineering team can easily release updates!

  36. Still sounds like their making excuses and trying to get lost customers back… what idiots SE are trying to trick us like that.

  37. I just like to know if the next update will be the battery efficiency which also in 2.3 update?

    if 2.1 is the end of my X10, anyone cares to buy mine? LOL
    i must to find an idiot buyer!!! LOL

  38. They missed the best part of the article out.

    this quote had me fuming

    “If we hadn’t done what we did with the X10 and the X10 minis we wouldn’t have been able to do what we’ve done here today”, he told Pocket-…lint looking down at the new Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc in his hand as a big smile of pride on his face.”

    This guy is so arrogant it’s unbelievable.

  39. I’ve had my X10 for almost a year now. And I still love it as much today as I did the day I received it. I have shown great loyalty to Sony over the years, owning many of their products, TV, 2 PS3’s, 3 Mobiles 2 of which are X10’s one mine and the other my daughters, 2 Sony sat nav’s, Sony audio equipment in my car and not forgetting the Vaio laptop. So come on Sony give some loyalty back. Give us 2.2 on our existing handsets.
    You know what? I’d even donate a small amount if I had to.

  40. If worse comes to worse, people here can upgrade to Froyo via the work being done by Zdzihu @ XDA Developers. The rom is exceptionally fast and stable, but camera functionality is a work in progress. As I don’t use my cam on a daily basis, I’ve decided to make the switch (at least for now.) I can always restore later if I feel like it.

  41. Why dont they just, in the next update, completely relpace the OS, can it actually be done? And load the Xperia Arc’s software on it, since the Arc has nearly the same hardware.

  42. You fucking lying bastards Sony Ericsson.

    You owe us X10 owners big time.

    Give us Froyo or open the bootloader you fucking cowards.

  43. Forgot to add, just bought an HTC Desire HD best decision, everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. LOL
    Do the same

  44. First generation? No, it is second generation, so no excuses. I think they do not need to have new models every eyar. X10 is capable to be selling product even for 2011, if it get upgrades. SE didn’t get it? Upgrading OS makes their products live little bit longer so they can easily sell “outdated” models and have time to make something really great. Arc is shiny because it is made by metal but what revolutionary it will really brings? Nothing except new design and new android OS .. that’s lame.

  45. The main drawback of the X10 is hardware limitations. It can not support multitouch. The best thing SE can do is software emulation of multi-touch.

    It’s really shortsighted of SE to not have considered the potential of Android when they were developing the X10. HTC at that time was already light years ahead. SE should have taken it from there.

    Something about branding. It is much better to introduce a new and improved X10 by naming it X12. Telling the market that Gingerbread Android is available for X10 won’t rake in new revenues. On the other hand, making a new phone from scratch will do that.

  46. If htc can tranform the hd2 from a windows phone, yes windows os, to an android, i dont see how se cannot transform the x10i, it is only an upgrade. Maybe we should pay htc to do the upgrade on our x10, as they can do a better job.

    Anyway who buys a smartphone only for aesthetics and not for its hardware and software, besides the fanboys?

  47. @Cat meeting our demands for the x10 will be a sign of trust from the users community. Although its not profitable but that is the only way to gain loyalty from consumers. The arc is not called the X12 thats because the specs do not live up to the name, ie outdated hardware. Or they simply do not want to continue naming their phones that way as it will remind people how terrible the phones were from X1 to X10.

  48. “What we think is different in 2011 is that consumer attention is swinging back to hardware once more.”



  50. Samsung Galaxy S free upgrade on the way to me now….

    Fuck You SE

    Never Again and I don’t give a fuck if you put 2.3 3.0 on any of your future phones.

    You lost me at the X10…. was a lifteime user of SE until now….

  51. Enough for me to MAKE.BELIEVE on Sony Ericsson’s products. I was disappointed on SonyEricsson’s decision that will not upgrade X10 family to 2.2 or higher. Say no to Sony Ericsson’s product and good bye.

  52. I was one of the x10 owner previously n i jumped ship to htc dhd about a month ago. i just wanna say, SE please don’t undermined the power of the internet. I just have a chat on MSN with couple of my friends overseas. both of them told me the same comment not to get any thing from SE next time when they buy new phone. n i’m told by them the friends of theirs have the same comment. your lack of support is way under par and MANY PEOPLE r aware!!!!!

    so SE, u do need to face the problem with action. not just saying.

  53. it is too late.
    even the arc is the worst phone of the next generation phones!! unless you care about brighter screen when you bend the phone in a dark room! bullshit…

    i have a wonderful froyo galaxy s now, and expecting to get gingerbread soon or even 2.4 “ice cream”
    going with SE was a big mistake and a waste of money, dam you SE

    SE make.shit

  54. If you think the customer be cheated easily by your fucking comment,
    you never success on IT WAR.

  55. Woah! The amount of “This will be my last SE phone! Bye Bye” comments on this blog is so sickening.

    *Prepares to get flamed*

  56. well done se lets forget the x10 and move on with the arc. x10 was a stepping ston ignore the seethers they duno what they talking about 😀

  57. Well I must say I am rather surprised with this announcement, it seems that Sony Ericsson are saying to all X10 customers that they have been sold an extremely expensive test unit.

    Now this would have been acceptable if the prices had been lower and the contracts shorter and we had been made aware at time of purchase that this was an experimental unit, but I don’t find this acceptable at the sort of prices we have all been charged and the fact the advertising and reviews all stated this was a premium phone.

    The phone hardware is good and does most things I need at a reasonable speed however everyone knows there are a few important shortcomings and there are some frustrating times when operation seems to lag.

    The most important feature of these new smart phones, whether they are Android or iPhone, is keeping the operating system up to date and I must admit I bought the phone knowing it was sold with Android 1.6. However, as most of the competition HTC, Samsung etc.. had a policy of updating their software to the latest versions and I was told at time of purchase that new software was due to be released soon, I was reassured that Sony Ericsson would have a similar policy. How far was I wrong???

    Well Sony Ericsson all I can say is I, like most of the people on here do not appreciate being used as guinea pigs to test your “experimental products” and I can’t say if you have learnt your lessons with this phone or not. But what I do know is that you have upset an awful lot of your future customers with your announcement that you won’t be updating the X10 further so where are you expecting customers for your new products to come from????

    It doesn’t matter how good your future products will be if nobody believes your software support policy will be any better and that you have upset 95% of your existing customer base!!!

    People with this phone who are now facing 18 months or more stuck in a contract without the chance of an OS update will get more and more upset as they find their phone cannot use increasing amounts of the applications released to the Android market. I feel that the complaints can only increase…

  58. And by the way Sony Ericsson who is 2011 going to be better for?

    Your customers – not with poor support like this.

    Sony Ericsson – not with the amount of customers you have upset and let down with the X10.

    Your competitors – HTC, Samsung and any other company that looks after their customers, should do well out of Sony Ericsson getting a reputation for providing expensive phones that are not properly supported.

  59. “Buying” the Xperia X10 and X10 mini handsets was a huge learning curve for the “shit buyer here”, but the “buyer” is now much stronger for it. “If we hadn’t “bought” the X10 and the X10 minis we wouldn’t have been able to do what we’ve done here today,” said “disappointed X10 owner”. “Last year we didn’t anticipate the stubbonness of SE would have towards the update/upgrade. And again that was a learning experience of “stop buying phone from SE”.
    As we do every year, we’ve taken those learnings and applied them to the new phone in the new portfolio. We do think we’ve taken a big step forward for 2011. What we think is different in 2011 is that consumer attention is swinging back to “other phone maker forever”. That’s not to say people aren’t “support SE”, but that they are “making a right choice” now

  60. If there is no update froyo for x10,then we will persuade other people not to buy sony ericsson…we have learnt from X10…and we will choose other phone until SE comeout with new update…….

  61. @1deq SE will not update the phone to 2.2 because u tell them to dont be foolish, they suggested they could late last year and they changed their mind. Sony Ericsson do not base their decisions on consumer pressure but whether it benefits them in the long run.

    So if you think a minority of people who complain about 1 phone in a major company out of a huge portfolio of phones sold around the world is making a big difference you are sadly mistaken

    FYI not everyone buys smartphone/touchscreen phones

  62. Enough already you guys shout in this blog, of course we know how disappointing se is, but now we are just wasting time here, stop it please…

  63. @Adam (post 28) – I couldn’t agree more.

    Come on guys, it’s getting a bit boring.
    Everytime there is something new posted on the blog here, it’s the same cr@p being posted in the comments everytime.
    MOAN and WHINE to SE directly….

    Appreciate what you have and the fact that, yes, the XPERIA X10 was their first big shot in the Android Market and I think all things considered they could have done a lot worse!

  64. Sorry to go against the trend, but I love my X10. It’s the best phone I’ve ever owned, and although it may not be on the most up-to-date version of Android it still rocks! It does everthing I want it to, except for having multi-touch capability which SE are fixing. If the next generation of phones are even better, then I can’t wait to get one.

  65. Jeg er glad ved min X10 og jeg ser rundt omkring på andre blogs at der klages i et væk over HTC, Samsung, Nokia ja selv Iphones, så set i lyset af det er X10 vel i grunden ikke så dårlig et produkt.
    Man kan så diskutere om der skulle have været “multi touch” og en masse andet skrammel i X10. Det synes jeg er komplet underordnet, det eneste jeg kan brokke mig over er at man kun kan skrive 4 linier sms = 160 tegn, skriver jeg mere vil den ikke sende , det er lidt funny .
    Prismæssig, ja – den kunne og burde have været billigere. Når nu SE selv indrømmer de ikke rigtig har fod på Android så er det lidt pudsigt at man smider en Android ud i den prisklasse, når man åbenbart nu indrømmer der er problemer og det burde de lære SE folk da nok tage til efterretnong.

  66. Sad thing is the decoupled timescape experience with 2.3 could easily be ported to X10. Given the hardware is so similar…clearly SE already done the work for Xperia Arc – they simply *don’t want to*.

    I can imagine the meeting at SE…

    Devs: “Well we already have the code for the Arc, give us a month to make the changes for X10 and we can release that as the last handset”

    The Suits: “X10? Fuck ’em! They can buy the Arc.”

  67. Omnomnom – delicious QQ tears

    Apologies for the less than helpful start to the message, but I can’t shake the impression of being stuck in a nursery class that’s been kept up too long past nap time. I come to this blog for news about a handset that physically is great and, with a little jiggery-pokery by the wizards at XDA, now has some cracking software too. While the articles are very useful, the emocentric hissy fits are getting a little too much to bear. At least, if they’re not helpful they are funny as hell :o)

  68. I still like/love my X10 and i belive 2011 will be better.

    Also i still belive in 2.3 uprgrade. But i supervise the reciving uprade after ARC premiere. This isn’t too late? This should not be surprising, especially since in SE strategy, relasing 2.3 before ARC premiere is mistake (for the company (SE) cash). Also its easy to see that Sony istelf is boosting SE technology. I dont belive SE bought Exmor and/or Bravia technology.

    In future i see nice things 🙂

    Nothing but wait. MY LAST HOPE!

    @ admin: when we will see DISQUS on this site? (thumbs up is good idea) It will be so nice 🙂 regards.

  69. Should we join all the X10 users that want more out of their phone, create some sort of donation that we can show SE.

    “Hey, look here. We got several hundred of users that will pay 10 Euro pr people for the boot loader. We can offer you 10k Euro if you will sell it”

    Then the gurus at XDA can for real fix the 2.2 or 2.3 and we can use the hardware.

    This starts to feel like an iphone, SE dont give a shit, we cannot change it as we would like to use it…….

  70. Sorry it my mistakes but dont bark me to rectified it. Mistake is mistake, let it be. It was you mistake bought me in the 1st place.

  71. any one aware when the shity MT will be avaible ??
    PTCrb(something like that ) was in 6 january now is 13 january and nothing happen are they sleeping or waiting for end of q1 2020??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  72. I dunno if SE will give in to its customer’s petition. The x10 family have already been on EOL (End Of Life, meaning no more stocks, will not get more) on many carriers .

    I’m with Virgin Mobile UK, and we only sold the X10 mini pro since December, and they are already EOLd just this week! come on, it’s only the 2nd week of January…

    If this is the scenario, it seems SE have really ditched us customers.

  73. Here in Sweden a major phone company made a giant market campain for the x10s and x8, just before christmas. Insane really if they two weeks later reaches Eol. Not only customers but also retailers have reason to be pissed off.

  74. I concur with those who say admitting mistake is nothing without fixing it. They are capable of fixing it, but choose not to. That’s just a bigger mistake. Happy X10 owners would do them a lot of good in the consumer world. Pissed off X10 owners can seriously influence future consumers against purchasing any S.E. products. My X10 is still under warranty until September. If they haven’t fixed. problems by then, I will root and mod it to the best XDA has to offer. XDA are the saviours to X10 owners and I suspect we will all be owing them eternal gratitude for keeping our hardware relevant. Now we wait to see what Sorry Errorson does next. The more we complain, the better chance we will influence change.

  75. hello, i was just wondering, as the arc has similar hardware to the x10, could someone, extract the user interface and chuck it on to a custom rom for the x10? or home how get the arc layout on to the x10??

  76. Can I only ask you all a simple request ? Please and I’m asking kindly please if you truly hate se and you are men and stand to your own words than stop visiting this forum like lets say for ever? How about this? Because if you keep checking this forum on a daily basis this means you are truly a bunch of kids that whine and cry but at the same time will be the first that buy the Arc and show the whole world your new toy.

    We understand that you hate se and we understand that you will not recommend se for anyone else. Now let the fans enjoy the news about SE, because there are still a lot of people that are interested in SE products and are still satisfied with their X10’s. You kids need to learn a lesson here which is that SE never promised any upgrade to 2.2! They stated clearly that they will study this decision and yes I admit that they made the wrong decision by saying their will be no upgrade, however, they didn’t lie or provide us by fake promises at all, they were clear from the own beginning.

    So, please get out of here and go cry in other places, seriously this is getting so annoying. I feel I’m in elementary school again! waaa waaa waaa, grow up and take full responsibility for your mistakes for once will ya?! The Arc rocks like hell and I will recommend it for everyone I know, and trust me I know a lot 😀

    Sony = make.believe

  77. @Fact is Fuct

    Your ignorance is really starting to get annoying. Do you even own an x10? If you do have you ever even held/used another phone running android? I find it highly doubtful considering you keep praising this piece of crap phone.

    Trust you? Your opinion is way too biased to be trusted.

  78. OMG! I knew it! “fact is fact” is Bert Nordberg, Rikard Skogberg or at least Steve Walker 😛

  79. U faking idiot for what i give away 500euro, to be captured in 2.1 due to your incapacity IDIOTS.
    open the boot loader and go fuck youself Incompetent idiotс

  80. Lol I knew it all along

    Fact is fact = ultimate sony fan boy
    bet you have sony bed sheets and a make.Believe poster on your wall lol

    You masturbate to the sony catalog don’t ya? Lol

    After reading all the different opinions I can understand why people are pissed.

    Guys have faith in xda

    Flash the 2.2 rom when its a bit more stable and has the campaign working, and come time to renew your contracts, hit up HTC or Samsung.

    All in all that’s what I’m gonna do 🙂


  81. I don’t care of what you people accuse me, after all your childish attitude says it all.
    Did Se promise any further upgrade to 2.2?! The answer is No! Therefore, you have the right to be pissed and angry but you have no right at all to accuse them of lying or stealing your money! Some of you think I’m biased, no I’m not, I’m just being reasonable and fair and thats it. Some of you need to grow up and stop making an update of a phone like it is the end of your life, shame on you.

    What I’m simply saying is that it’s wrong to spam every single forum with the same subject all over again! It gets boring you know! By the way have any of you heard of samsung behold?
    The phone that samsung promised to upgrade to 2.1 but never released an update beyond 1.6! And for the record moto and samsung still have phones with 1.5 and 1.6
    So it’s good to know that all se phones are at least 2.1.

    Be optimistic and stop being filled with hate and anger because it will do you no good.

    God bless you all, even though I’m disappointed with a lot of users here.


  82. And don’t worry we will improve our future updates as asserted before, sorry I meant se will improve their updates in the future since the new UI is customized in a better way now. And I think there is still a chance that Se may reconsider updating to 2.2 although nothing is for sure, so again no promises!

    Cheer up folks because the future is brighter 😉

    Sony= make.believe

  83. I do not want to know what Samsung did because I never had a Samsung.
    And i don’t care about samsung now. When i buy new phone again u have my promise that phone not be SE

    If I knew there would be no more update from 2.1 + never buy SE.

  84. is this some kind of a joke? fact is fact real sony company??? i think not, but i took you word for it and wait, maybe 2.2 may come out, oh wait,will that this year end or Q2 of next year???

  85. I won’t be there to watch their 2011 steps. I’m so disappointed with SE since they refused to upgrade to 2.2 so I never again will buy anything from SE.. I spent a lot of money 5 months ago for a phone that now is obsolete.

  86. OK reconsider your decision.
    I hope that it will be positive because THE BUYER IS ALWAYS RIGHT.
    U should know that…

  87. Sony Ericsson admits Xperia X10 mistakes; says 2011 will be better ???

    U still have time to fix the mistakes if you authorize the upgrade of the X10 family…

  88. 2010 wasnt good.for u? ?? kidding us? lol that was bcus of ur own mistake and u can of course make ur costumers happy by good support u caj still have good marketing against by stopping waste ur costumers money

  89. at =NoXiouS=
    Now we wait to see what Sorry Errorson does next

    I suspect Sorry GAYPornonos= sony ericsson

  90. Stop using my name please, using my name just proves that what I said is right and instead of replying me like men, you act like children and use my nick name to say bad things and unwanted language.

    Grow up people, seriously if this is your response than no wonder why you think and act in this way. I told you that SE will improve many things in the future, just wait and see.

    Sony= make.believe

  91. I can promise you that Future of se will finish when is sell X10. will not buy any product of this company! As long as i got x10 i will fight for further update!

  92. Arrogant and ignorant customers is not for me
    if there are any customers service . they sit there like a bunch of baboons knowing nothing about X10 and can not provide any specyfic information starting from Update 1.6 to 2.1

  93. I agree Xperia X10 isn’t good enough, nor does iPhone 3G or iPhone 4 any better. But still, X10 functionality is better than any of iPhone depending on what you use for phone for.

  94. to be honest about future?? Arc seem to smell 2010
    no dual core processor 1ghz is 2010
    515 mb ram =iphone4 and iphone 4 was in 2010

    se playstation have lower frame rate than x10
    what do you mean by future???

    Iphone has already 3 major update those
    we got got realy only 1 update 1.6 – 2.1 becouse 2.0.a.0.24 was only to make X10 more caged does it

    Seriously respond to what about there is nothing to talk about ? Man
    Se did give as any reason to serious talk. OR do you mean this arrogant man which are careless about their customer. Because we feeed him if not we he will be long time ago droped for this place

  95. i think it would be better if people who now hate Sony Ericsson stop comenting on this page because you look so dumb buy a different phone if you hate them u fools, tbh im glad they have made most of you mad cause half of you are too dumb to know the difference between 2.1 and 2.2 anyway

  96. I had a little time to kill on my lunch break and decided to phone Sorry Errorson just for s****s & giggles. Although I got nowhere, my complaint is noted and I answered the brief automated survey at the end of my call and added my own comment when prompted. The more complaints and constructive criticism they get, the more chance they will get the point and actually do something about it. I like the suggestions here that they use the ARC firmware and modify it for the X10. If that is possible, then it is the most logical step for them to take. As I said earlier, they would be far better off keeping X10 owners happy instead of pissed off. I seriously hope that they backpedal on the decision and give us 2.3. Whenever anybody asks me what kind of phone I’m using, I now answer “It’s an iclone”. Usually this generates the response “You mean an iphone?” I then reassure them “No, it’s an iclone. Like an iphone, but not. It runs on Android” All the Sony Errorson logos are covered by my custom skins and for now I try hard not to admit who the manufacturer is :+)

  97. I forgot to mention: North Americans can call 1-866-766-9374 in addition to hitting the blogs and petitions. If more and more of us stand up the B.S., there is a better chance they will step up and do the right thing instead of abandoning us with outdated O.S..

  98. My friend told me not go with X10 , But I still went ahead , I never had a guess that it is a deep shit. My friend had bought LG optimus one… OMG it is solid for its cost. It runs 2.2 froyo…and still upgradable to 2.3.. and its half the price…

    lessons learnt !!
    1. Why you want a front camera when the damn OS cant run beyond 2.1?
    2. Why you want a 8 mp camera when the damn OS doesn’t have Multitouch?
    3. Why you want such a glossy big screen when the OS runs like a dial up network?
    4. And why you want a 1 gig processor ?? its like buying a 1 tB hard disk for 1 mb utility !!

    Finally you made us jokers !! You SE jokers, don’t dare to talk about your ARC model unless you give an 2.3 update to X10… when LG can given to their base models why not you?? you were not the only one developing android at the time of 2008 !! SE is only good for photo and sound..for which i can always bug a cam and walkman!!

  99. Having read the comments here, i am getting sick of those se bootlickers who repeatedly say se never promise anything. If that is the case then please insert a health warning when selling se phones, like those on cigarrette boxes, “warning no version upgrades after this”. Then there is no dispute at all, and consumer can then choose.

    And now those bootlickers are saying 2011 promises to be better. Dont make promises you cannot fulfill. And judging from the comments on the arc blog, i guess there are only a handful of them. Probably se employees in disguise.

  100. If I were a guinea pig for SE, why didn’t I get compensation and instead, I PAID A BIG BUCK to be one ? X10 successfully destroyed my long-term loyalty to SE.

    Last month, I finally got fed up. I dumped my SE X10 and bought an HTC Desire HD. It’s a much much much much much much more mature product.

    Like everyone said, the first experience is usually painful or unpleasant. And thanks SE, for treating my Android virginity like a dirt. You just treated me like a fuck buddy.

  101. @fact is fact
    I just wrote “fact is fact” with my shit, while I shit. Believe all can do that..
    You just need to have patience.

    SE Makes.Believe

  102. You can do any one of the following to make it up…. Release updates for the X10, taking it up to the current flavour of Android, or recall the X10, and replace them with the Arcs

    “I just wrote “fact is fact” with my shit, while I shit. Believe all can do that..

    What I meant to say is, my Dad did a shit on my chest, then my Mummy wrote “fact is fact” in it with her finger.

    We are a very close family.

  104. where this earth born those baboons which work Shitty errorson. People are woried about banker who take a bonus Why they dont think thos baboons who are so lazy arrogant , irresposible, irritating and sleeep all the time!
    SE= make a shit on customers faces !!

  105. abandon ship, abandon ship, abandon ship, abandon ship, abandon ship

    Please close this post

  106. Hey guys its not only SE which has learned from its x10 mistakes, but i think all of us have also learned from our biggest mistake going for x10. There is only one thing we can do now, and that is DO NOT BUY A SE PHONE AGAIN. My first SE phone was T68i after that i never bought any other brand phone, but i think i have to look for any other brand now.

  107. Last time I checked, I didn’t signed up to be a beta tester for an android phone.

    @Fact is Fact

    Funny that your name is fact when you are living in fiction if you think SE has learned. That’s the same thing they said after X1, after Satio, and now X10.. SE is always bad with Updates, that’s a FACT.. and they always will.

  108. “after X1, after Satio, and now X10”
    You should say they make crap starting k850 with those crappy tree touch buttons which been in crappy repair center 3 times

    I know this man “fact is fact” He always come when customers are not happy he was very active septembe october november. What is it ? …….please wait web page is loading X10………… Aha 2.1

  109. @ Fact is Fact

    You sodding SE employee/ SE asswipe/ butt kisser, gtfo here and stop misguiding otherwise sane people.

    You endorse SE’s mention of improved performance as if it’s gospel, and next time around when the people are let down again, you will be the first mofo to say, “O, but they didn’t promise anything. You should have done better research before buying this phone”, coz, lets face it, apart from loose talk by no- namers where does the company state in an ironbound way that xyz is it’s roadmap for 2011.

    Get a life, go get laid or something, if that’s not good enough go suck some SE cock like you’re doing, only, make sure it’s literal and not figurative.

  110. @ Fact is Fact.


    I hope you are getting paid at least minimum wage for this PR work you are doing for SE. The way I see it, You’re prolific on these blogs, guess there goes the rest of your life out the window. Woud be soo hard unfair to you to not get paid, but then seeing how well you do that job, were I your employer, I wouldn’t pay much at all.

    Your opinions are blind, biased, and misinformed. I hope you have yourself convinced by the blind crap you state, because I am not. I pity the retard who is taken in by the nonsense you spout (does not mean- share your opinion, lots of fanboys for that, but become a convert after your load of bull).

    Better droids on the marker bro.

    i think it would be better if people who now hate Sony Ericsson stop comenting on this page because you look so dumb buy a different phone if you hate them u fools, tbh im glad they have made most of you mad cause half of you are too dumb to know the difference between 2.1 and 2.2 anyway


    LMFAO, that the best you can do? You friggin retard, come up with a better arguement. I and many others had an extremely distasteful experience with your Idols. I’m steering others who could be misguided away from making the same mistake.

  113. So in the ptcrtb the soft was get certificate 6 jan and today we got today we got 14 jan and there is no sign of update Mr. Gates said that they learn from mistake and is 2011 so where are those improvments in timing bunch of baboons ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  114. I wouldn’t boder about SE they are furious so they even if they can they will not do 2.2 becouse there are too lazy and proud of them self
    I will more focus on the XDA now !!!

  115. x 10 mini pro ,my first smartphone and it has made me regret .no market for gulf ,then why print on more SE.

  116. That’s great and all… however I got myself a BB Torch on Monday. Loving it off. Bluetooth, voice dialing all works so well with this new handset. Camera works quickly and the OS is well integrated with the gmail system so there was no need to manually populate my address book.
    Thus far, I’m very happy to have moved over. The X10 will just be something to mess with now in spare time.

  117. why, you say people are pissed of with SE and their support? it is because when they release the X10s, it was running on android 1.6, while the rest of the world is releasing 2.2

    Now, they have the package advertised “can be upgraded to later android OSs”. Come on, if you are buying a laptop with great specs, running windows 98, of course you can have been promised it can be updated to a newer OS. Would you then settle for Vista, knowing you can go for a Windows7?!

    That’s how we X10 owners feel.

  118. Hell with SE….we spend the money to buy a so called top notch phone and it turns out to be a “learning curve” for SE. Why not give us our money back and then learn as much as you want. When X10 was launched there were already some great phone out there…SE should’ve checked its competition…but what SE does is it just gives up on the customers who got the phone.

    When the hardware is capable of much more why dont you guys make sure we have the software too to make complete justice to the phone and the customers. I dont think we are asking for more…we just want what can be achieved !

    Will definitely think twice before buying any SE phone in the future…no more recommendations from me to anyone to buy SE.

  119. Lol some funny stuff In this thread, mod don’t you dare delete a single post!

    Wanna laugh? My missus mum got an x10 about a week and a half ago, she needed help setting it up for facebook and wha not so as I know a bit about computers and stuff I helped.

    The x10 was still on 1.6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    lamo! I couldn’t believe it!

    That was new out the box too!
    Can’t believe their still shipping them with 1.6 lol

    I’ve had the 2.2 rom on mine and when its stable enough with a working cam boom!

    Such pissed takers lol

    And loving the hate on fact is fact!

    So funny!

  120. @Nitin

    your the one that needs to get a life because your the one that keeps whining like a little bitch! Why are you telling me to get a life and to get laid, I think you should say this to your self.

    I’m not the one who revolves his whole life for an update! Seriously, your a pig you know that. And pigs will remain pigs no matter what they do. I’m not going to get out, because this place is for SE fans and people who are interested in se products. So if you don’t like se products your the one who should get the hell out of here, and go find any place else that suits you.

    Stop being a bitch, because a bitch is the one that complains all the time. STFU and take full responsibility for your actions. your so pathetic because you think your smart but your nothing than a very stupid person who has nothing in life that an update lol, if I were you, I would kill my self, because people like you have no value.

    You son of a bitch 😛

  121. @niten

    it’s ok niten I forgive you no need to apologize. I know most of you are still small and have no real experience in life, and that’s the reason I try to make things simpler for you kidos, since you and others may find it difficult to understand. And yes I know you are going to buy the arc when ever your mom gives you the money, so be a good boy OK 🙂

    take care,

  122. @ fact is fact
    Firstly try said to the mirror to get it right
    and when you grow up you can came in!
    The fact is fact you ahve to grow up

    you son of gay:)

  123. if if nitin is 13 still does not mean you are boss!

    The fact is you put hier a bunch of lies

  124. niten just stfu ! I will not tell your mom. Now just leave me alone and scram 🙂

    I have no times for baby children. I’m working here 😛

  125. @Nitin
    No need to apologize to that dumbass! Oh wait, you’re actually Fact is Fact pretending to be someone else. What a loser!

    Fact is Fact = SE’s BITCH! And that’s a FACT!

  126. dear sss-se

    I did not say any lie at all? I am just being honest with everybody, tell me what lie did I say?

    It’s true samsung and moto still have devices in 1.5 and 1.6 and they never updated them. All I’m trying to say is that it’s not only se who make bad mistakes, because after all it’s all about business.

    But at least se are better because all their devices are on 2.1 unlike other companies thats all. Don’t think that by changing to moto or samsung that they will make updates for ever, trust me they are worse.

  127. @nitin

    “I’m very sorry please forgive me and don’t tell my mom I have been a bad boy”
    O common men dont be fool you dont have to be sorry !
    Every think what he can do to you is suks dick

  128. steve why are you defending Niten so bad, guess it’s you loser using more than one nick which shows how pathetic you are! you need to have more than one nick to support your self. Otherwise, why are you so angry as if you were the one humiliated.

    what a loser! don’t worry I won’t tell your mom niten, but stop being a bad boy 🙂

  129. if you don’t like se products, just get the fuck out of here! Go find any other forum. This forum is for the fans and people who are interested. And I’m pretty sure that the owner of this blog will also buy an Arc, otherwise why did he even extend this blog to the

    So I hope we get rid all the jerks here, to make this place cleaner. Although I doubt it because I’m sure most of you will be buying the arc because you can’t resist se 😛

    sony = make.believe

  130. Do you know how much people wanted to buy an iphone 4g and galaxy s and I made them buy the current x10 ! This is way beyond your imagination trust me. Because I prefer to speak by reason and logic here, unlike most of you who are sheep and are driven by the media.

    Anyway, just keep in mind, you are dealing with fact is fact here! So unless you can’t handle the facts be aware of approaching the king of this forum, fact is fact 😉

  131. @fact..
    Why I don’t like x10
    1) I cannot play flash
    -no iplayer bbc
    -no weather foracast in bbc
    – most of the website are base on flash

    where are you watch a gay movie most of this website are base on flash
    can not open
    xhamster and i dont like to pay

    And you are not lieing??

    2) soft is slow
    3) i can to play avi, mpg4
    4) new market does not work
    5) 1 ghz process would work on 2.2 with without any proplem is like puting win 98 to 4core processor with 4gb ram
    6) every think in this phone are lock bootloader ther no even file explorer
    7) there no equalizer!
    The customer service is very bad they dont know alot

    And you are trying to say that se 1.6 soft are very good

  132. @x10

    Your assumptions are wrong my friend! These people keep offending and insulting me just because I disagree with their opinion. Everyone is entitled for his own believes, the problem is that when you let those teenagers say what they want with out even deleting their posts, it’s normal that there will be also a negative reaction.

    I admit that I didn’t speak polite and nice, but that’s because I tried to be a nice person, but people kept offending me! People like Bandit keep using different names and you know that, so I think it’s better to band such people, because the only reason they come here is to say the same thing all over again.

    FUCK SE, YOU ARE LOSERS, YOU ARE RETARDED or what ever! It’s getting boring. And now I know for sure I’m dealing with children and not adults at all.

  133. see se

    I never said that 1.6 is good! Now that’s a lie. All I said is that se never promised a 2.2 upgrade, and yes we have the right to be angry but at the same time I don’t feel that we were betrayed by them at all. Many companies do such thing and it’s not only SE.

    And if you and other hate se products than why are you even here ???! Seriously, this whole blog has a reason and is to cover se products and news. And now the blog is bigger with the

    so it’s simple if you hate se this much, then it’s not your place. I for example, never visit samsung phones because I find their phones very boring and ugly! So it makes to sense for me to go visit a samsung forum on a daily basis just to hate and bash, it’s so low to do such thing. instead of spending your time on something you like and are interested in, you spend your time on something you hate !!!??

    it’s so stupid and it will harm your health. And Haven’t you notice that in every forum people are just doing the same thing, swearing and threatening se! It’s getting boring, really boring. we should share our opinions and interest, not just come here to hate and swear like teenagers! However, to my disappointment this is not the case.

  134. @fact is fact
    Whaaw.. that was really intelligent move you fkin shitty..
    Grow-up child…

    I am fed-up with abusing you.. I mean it dude…
    I never seen such a looser like you!!!..

    Its been amazing to be alive after getting hatred from all of us..
    Live long you son of Gay

  135. I was using Se since t68i then t610,t630,k10, k850 ,satio, I was happy because thouse phone was fairly good i wasn’t dissapoitment i was very happy because this phone was almost unbreakable if you treat them reasonable I still got T630 and is working 100%
    Spent 400 quit on this phone because i idid this as a rutine!
    I was assuming that if there is a wifi so it must be a flash. this soft was new at that time and in the beginning i didnt have enough knowledge ! As a customer i dont have to be expert.
    X10 i a half of product
    Simply this is not enough and I was trusting this company this comapny just fail my trust and I am furious

  136. @ moro

    No I’m not! People started talking to me this way and I replied them with their same level. Usually I really prefer to talk nice and have a friendly conversation. But of course if people will not respect me and talk in a rude way, I will have the right to speak back.

    The whole mistake is that the owner should either banned some ip’s. Or at least make a more professional comments system similar to the, but with out allowing the guest option.

    But unfortunately if he does this, many users will not be allowed to comment because many of them don’t have accounts and are not mature enough anyway! So the result is ciaos and everyone says and does what he wants with no punishment what so ever.

    An example is that people like bandit who only comes here to swear are still here, although not once that they have said anything productive or related to the news, it’s just bashing and hating all the time. Trust me, I’m sick of all this and I’m not enjoying it.

    But I’m also a big fan of se, and this blog indeed does a great job of presenting the latest news for this company. And that’s the reason I come back because I like the blog, but I know the users are morons and mostly uneducated and don’t know what they are talking about anyway.

  137. That what i called company T630 this was a phone with good customer service and at that time full of gadzet

  138. @x10 warrior

    you abusing me lol. Your one of the most stupid users here hehe. Not 100 of you could do anything to even make me care! There are plenty of users here good and bad, but you are among the dumbest ones, so please just shut up.

    Even people who I hate here, sometimes have good reasons to argue about, but you ? Just a laugh 😛

  139. @sss-se

    You said it yourself the history of se is great! And your past experience is very good with se phones, otherwise you won’t still buy their phones correct? Yes I admit that maybe the X10 had it flaws but still do you think it’s fair to hate the company and call it the worse just because it mad some mistakes and forget all the satisfaction you had with this company in the past?

    I’m telling people to move on, and stop making a big deal out of an update. It is getting boring like I told you. But most of the users here are kids, so it’s hard to deal with kids if you know what I mean. I’m glad to see that your a reasonable person though, unlike the dog x10 warrior for example, who keeps barking instead of saying something useful.

  140. So you are proud that your a dog ha looool, good for you then dog 😛

    If your a dog then no wonder why you have no brain.

  141. @fact
    don’t you thing that their support are a little bit short especially that X10 was a phone above 400 so I think that equipment should have more carefullness about their customers.
    More support . I can uderstant spiro , zylo and other phone whicha are about 200 pound
    but 400 is expensive and many times are 18month contract

  142. And I can give more longer list of mistakes
    such youtube are not hq
    and mt it should be a bit ealier

    Arc lets have quick look on spec
    I think 512 is enough for phone about still should be abit more than that in 2011 comparing to iphone which have very large market share I dont know exacly bu t is over 60 % and is grow
    there are dual core processor if ther will be a dual core I can give the even 500 £
    and there improvement on camera are so small it should be 12 mpx and some optical zoom to this HD camera

    sorry of topic arc

  143. To anyone thinking of getting a new phone, AVOID SONY!!

    The insults they’ve thrown at X10 owners is an absolute disgrace.
    They have no customer service – it’s in the toilet where the X10 should be.

  144. Just messing about with Android 2.1 today then upgraded to 2.2….all good so far…

    was on watching live tv using Adobe 10.1.

    Quick root then Wireless Tethering great.

    Put all the apps I don’t use so much on the SD card….

    took a few high res pictures and some high res video…. at this point I’m delighted..

    Then I realise I’m on my free upgrade Samsung Galaxy S phone and my Outdated Xperia X10 will probably get relegated to being my sat nav.

    Only bought the X10 about a couple of months ago and now it’s redundant…..

    Fuck you Sony Ericsson.

  145. The comments section on this blog are hilarious. Who would have thought current x10 owners were so stupid ?? You and Samsung/Motorola deserve each other.
    At the end of the day consumers will buy this product “en masse”. Why? Because it has the features they’re after in a mobile phone and a longer battery life than their previous HTC/Motorola/Samsung handset. SE couldn’t give a shit about a few highly strung smartphone geeks and their whinging bullshit. They’ll be more than content if a million or so women go into a phone store and say ” wow, it takes great photos and has messaging”.

    Googleoids are epic fail

  146. @ Fact is Fact.

    Wow, dude you are the king of losers. You actually used my name and made it seem like I Was apologising?????? LOSER!!!!!!!!!

    LMFAO you bitch, cant do anything straight. Mislead people into thinking SE is something it is clearly not and now mislead others about me by posting under my name.

    You little bitch, like I said, the amount of time you spend here sucking SE cock, I hope you are at least making minimum wage. It would be pitiful if your ife starts and ends defending SE and you have nothing to show for it.

    BTW, BITCH, my grammar is no as bad as in the false posts you added on my name.

  147. @ Fact is Fact

    In retrospect, I wonder about your maturity. The constant need to refer to someone’s mom? That’s definitely juvenile. While you stated my age was 13, I think I’ve got a firmer hold onwhat yours is, you fucking delinquent. GTFO these forums.

  148. LMAO! This has gotten way out of hand.

    @Fact is Fact – You’re the only one who uses emoticons in these posts. It’s not hard to find out which is which. Whooops! You can’t edit them.. FAIL! Calling you an idiot would be an insult to all the stupid people.

    @Admin – I apologize for some of the words used here. We’re all disappointed as it is and it just doesn’t help that there is a Troll SE employee here who doesn’t have a life, uses our names and post ridiculous comments.

  149. Guys… we should all by now be coming to terms with the fact that the x10 family will never go beyond 2.1. However, I have to admit that a lot of the crap coming out of SE recently about the x10 is just simply insulting to x10 owners.
    Even though I know the phone costs a packet, all we can do is never go SE again after all the nonsense we have had to put up with.
    Also chaps, we have heard a lot from fact is fact to know that he is as biased as they come. There is no point engaging with his stupidity. He just another one of the blind who just follow the blind down that endless vortex of SE bullshit. Just ignore the fanboy.

  150. I don’t understand all the whines here.
    Just go install z’s Android 2.2.1 Custom ROM if you want FroYo this much. It’s only problem is the lack of Camera and that will be fixed in the upcoming hotfixes.

    BTW Fact is Fact, you are a disgrace to all living things.

  151. If S.E have learnt from their mistakes release the updates! Yes using a custom ROM is a choice but with no camera (for now) most people will not use it, The Devs are doing amazing work but if a dev (and no offence to them) can release a 2.2 update in a matter of weeks I think S.E could have released the update by now and then concentrated on whatever they are working on now!!! S.E keep releasing statements that contradice what they say one day to the other, Just give us it straight S.E!!
    Sounds like they not hear what customers want and I fear they will make same mistake with the new phones 🙁
    I love the X10 but to make it obeselete in such a short time for what??? get a grp S.E 😉

  152. I love fact is fakt and I keep visiting this blog hoping that my useless excuse for a fast phone aka X10 will magically get updated. In all honesty….I’m not looking for whether SE promised or lied about 2.2….FIF You really have missed the boat on what is important. People don’t visit this blog because they are fans….they just want SR to do the right thing. I don’t want to shell out more money for an arc to make my life better….the device in my hands is hardware.good.enough for me. The software is all that needs a little tune up. This is not 1991. Upgrading software is a normal experience. Ending support before a year is up? Hmmmmm. All the anger on this and other blogs boards and lists…..well deserved for SE. FiF, I love your spirit. You believe in responding to every comment and every flame and every word….keep at it bro. It is nice for you to have something to do.

    I love many of the features of my X10. But the emperor has no clothes.

    With all my alps clogging memory….and with TScape and MDScape clogging the O/S my phone is laggy. At times I want to drown my phone to put it out of its misery.

    It looks great. It has great specs…. but YUGO designed the interface….

    SE learned a lot with this phone. Ain’t that quaint. For the low price of 500 slackers I can get their next test device. Someday they will make a *real* device.

    As long as I have my phone…..I willow visit this blog….(thanks for hosting….)

    Even the flame wars are fun to read from time to time.

    But if SE were to provide real updates that responded to the user…not the carriers…then I would have a different reason for visiting this blog.

    I did not install the update after 2.1 because this blog taught me that the Z4 root would stop working. Now that was an unfriendly update. I wonder if a carrier requested that….why would SE go out of their way to upset consumers? I guess there are lots and lots of satisfied sheep with X10s. I know…I have personally met many. You may even be reading thisblog wondering what all the fuss is about.
    Here is an analogy.
    Lets say you bought MSFT Word 98. It works fine 10 years later or 20 years later….fact is fakt would be happy with this analogy as there were no promised upgrades.
    Now you may decide you want Word 2000. It is compatible with yourstill smokin’ fast machine….but your PC manufacturer says……welll we learned some lessons….and you will have to buy a new machine if you want newer software.

    NOT! Separate the hardware from the software on my phone please.

    ARC? yeah…..right. ill drain every penny out of my x10. No HTC or Arc or other super phone. I just want to get my $500 worth out of this phone. And I think that $500 should be worth more than 8 months. Don’t you? Hats off to XDA. SE try a new paradigm. Upgrade your old phones as you sell new phones. An old guy like me needs to save his nickels. And old guys like me influence a lot of friends. I’ve been recommending iPhones ever since I got this phone….oops. why? Because I’ve lost faith in the SE brand. Sony still has a place in home. But SE does not.

    Sorry, old folks tend to ramble on more than you youngsters. I apoplogize. I’d add some Smileys but I don’t know how. I’d edit my text but I haven’t figured out how to scroll and pick exact letters on this tiny X10 screen. (Not really true…I know how itut it is not easy so I avoid it.

  153. fact is fact
    fact is fact grow up man
    unbelivable you are !!
    I think you exchange dick with your head man. You think you are boss You are wrong You are so wrong !!

    I will stop reading this blog because fact is fact have serious mediacal injury and should have emergency appointment in phychiatra!!
    Or Se are spending milion of pound to you

  154. Sorry for all the typos….I suck at typing on this phone.

    I hope there will be a nice surprise and an update worth liking. I really do. But I’m not holding my breath.

    After all….we could all get together and fund another year of XDA support if SE wont play.

  155. Don’t worry folks the future of SE is indeed brighter 😛

    Remember always :

    Sony= make.believe

    And if someone tells you otherwise, they are lying!

  156. Ok you fucking f@g I told you I forgive you! Stop kissing my @ss !! I told you I’m straight, go find another person to play with, and I will not tell your mommy that you have been a bad boy, so scram kido 🙂

  157. @Chris

    I’m not a disgrace. In fact, I’m in a position that you and your family will never ever reach or ever dream about! Don’t talk nonsense if you don’t even know me, just STFU and be quiet.

  158. I still say you are a disgrace to the air that you are breathing.
    And every comment that you post, proves my theory.

  159. And you know what, there are several members here that totally agree with me! And they also refuse all the bitching and whining that you kids are doing. So it’s not like It’s only me that thinks that way. But the reason I’m being attacked is because my words are strong and true and truth hurts! And because you don’t want to believe that you are a bunch of kids with no life and that your whole life revolves among a silly update loool so pathetic by way, you keep trying to figure out reasons that you are still right, and then attack me to feel better about yourselves.

    But this never changes the fact that your still teenagers and that your still not mature enough because you keep feeling miserable for an update! Not even a phone hehehe. Kids how sweet and adorable, so do you want a candy now, well in order to get one you must be a good boy first 😉

    stop whining like bitches and for once in your life be men in your life and take responsibility for your actions. If most of you will leave se after the X10, I’m really glad. Because in the future I will avoid having conversations with such pathetic and useless species.

  160. @Chris

    Words are cheap! So keep saying what ever you want to say, but reality is different, at least I’m not the one who is being a bitch and feeling miserable just for an update 🙂

  161. Read my first comment again. I was the one that said:

    “I don’t understand all the whines here.
    Just go install z’s Android 2.2.1 Custom ROM if you want FroYo this much. It’s only problem is the lack of Camera and that will be fixed in the upcoming hotfixes.”

    I kind of feel sorry for you. Must be so hard to live your life. Poor kid.

  162. @Chris

    I also feel sorry for you because you think your smart but your not, but don’t worry your beyond average, you’ll still live 🙂

  163. So you are smarter that we all together ! you are wrong. you are so wrong !
    you are poor kid who like to admire some but is scrare to say that

  164. @seus

    Yes you are right, you know why my comments are the longest? Because I’m giving those kids lessons that they will never forget 😛

    These kids are spoiled and they take no responsibility for their actions, they are so pathetic because they never admits their mistakes which will result in never developing themselves and staying in the same point they are now which means eventually others will get smarter and they will look more stupid.

    Life is about discipline and taking responsibility of our actions, these kids will learn this one day, probably the hard way. Anyway, I’m just giving them a hand to assist them.

    PS: Don’t think there is a lot of them because it’s probably one or two but they keep using several nicks to look as many. But the problem is that they don’t realize that their stupidity reveals their actions very clearly.

    Yes SE made a bad desicion by not updating their x10 family, however, samsung and moto and others also did such thing and will continue to do so, so it’s not like that it’s only se to blame. At least all se devices are still 2.1 unlike other brands which are still stuck in 1.5 and 1.6! Just be greatful for what you have and stop torturing your selves because of an update.

    Some people can’t even find something to eat or wear and yet you are crying all day for an update, shame on you all.

    Sony = make.believe

  165. @seus

    I didn’t say I am smarter than you all, it’s someone using my nick as usual 🙂

  166. do I care about that. what the fuck am i look like a charity —bitch
    I spend money and I required respectfulness from the company and support for amount money that I paid

  167. @moro
    and I am not sorry to him thou becouse he started with Nitin!!
    Fact is fast that can not be proved but there is high probability that it was him MR Smartest in the world

  168. You people need to visit places that make you feel good and better! So if this place makes you feel miserable and angry do not come here for your own sake and health, trust me.

    Life is full of problems and challenges, and therefore on our free time we need to hang out with the people that we like most, or at least visit places that we admire and make us happy. For example, I keep visiting se forums because I like them, they make me happy, excited, motivated and interested. So if this place makes you disappointed, miserable and like a fool, you need to enjoy other places, because you deserve to be happy and not angry all the time 🙂

    Being angry all the time, will only make you less productive and less admirable. People don’t like the person that constantly complains and whines and this will only result in getting less friends. You need to be strong, optimistic and full of energy and life. Try to change as I know that most of you are still young and growing up, so keep learning.

    Usually I give such sessions for a free, but your getting a free one, so your lucky 😛

    And stop using my name because it’s not cool, and if you stop doing this, I will also stop using some of yours.


  169. this blog is a hilarious it just drive me crazy when you read from the begining to the end.
    That’s a psychitric level of IQ

  170. So when x10 mt update come out

    I guess everybody say soon 1q in 2011 or even 2012 or probably infinity

    Any thing more specyfic than that ????

  171. Nitin January 15, 2011 at 3:56 PM
    I am fact is fact is bitch, and what ever you will tell me I will follow please forgive me


    Really bro?

    Literally translating the bad grammar it means “I am fact is fact, fact is fact is bitch”, the rest is ok.

    SMD mofo and stop posting as me.


  172. the news is new and fact is that we still play the same game!

    factual fact is a new news witch have reality in it and the post above does not have it
    so where are those facts

  173. 2011 can be better with longer support for x10 series 😉
    No bad phones, good hardware but bad support 😉

  174. I dont undertand

    how “fact” can be a bitch, gay, shemale, news, fact
    So the fact change his camuflash

  175. Lmfao. This thread has been hijacked by that bitch, Fact is Fact. He’s posted under everyone’s name, who disagreed with him, ever.

    Fact is Fact, shit head, where you live, people might post as you do, “omg so sorry, the government has made me see the error of my ways, I swear to be a good citizen from now on comarade”. Where I live, I call junk, junk. I don’t have to lick SE ass to make minimum wage.

    So, bro, before posting as anyone else, go get a psych evaluation done.

  176. I think I’ve used a few words here, fag and gay, are words that I never use, ever. So yeah, considering everyone posting as everyone else, there’s chaos here.

    Having said that, I stand by what I said, Fact is Fact is a BIG Time SE cocksucking bitch.

  177. Nitin
    I a psych eveluation is done only on monkeys so how can i do i eveluation if you are human ???
    Most of us have to lick Se as to get minimum wage becouse – gay bitch and shemale

  178. @ Fact is Fact

    Where’s your polite posturing now, Bitch? Weren’t you trying so hard to convince every sod to devote all their earnings into the SE stable? Seeing how you have posted, I guess your facade does not stand up.

    You’ll need a new alibi, bitch. Shouldn’t be hard though, considering how many names you have posted under.

    Lastly, do me a curtsey, while posting as me, no matter what you post, please post my name in capitals, and please use decent grammar. The illiterate junk you posted, as me, has me wanting to commit suicide if ever I wrote something like that.

  179. @Niten

    Others are posting in my nick name to insult you! I know I said bad stuff about you, but some of the sick people here are using ny nick name and taking the advantage of the whole situation so just be aware of such thing.

    I believe in what I asserted earlier and I believe that if we disagree with each other this doesn’t mean that we need to insult and offend each other. So, just be aware of the game others are dragging us into. As I mentioned before, it’s easy to predict children’s actions.

  180. @Niten

    And yes some people are using your nick name constantly as well as mine! I only used it in the beginning that’s all.

  181. @ Fact is Fact.

    That still doesn’t make you less of a saddo. I found no compulsion to post as you, so I wonder why you needed to post as others?

    Hmm, one guess says it, dishonest ways run deep in all SE policy and fanboys.

    Arc? Nty. Reminds me, Good thing Noah’s Arc wasn’t made by SE. the world would be crazy today.

  182. @ the retard posting as me,

    Yeah, one always posts stuff like that about one’s self. Soo credible. Lmfao!

  183. O. Wow, posting stuff about me, as me, is one thing, please refrain from flaming others, as me.

  184. Trade-in of x10 for x12.. that would be better. They made us test subjects, so Why don’t they give us Complimentary Units?

  185. Mhm, posting about how “I” love SE, will not give them my money. Most people who have bought a SE product get it too.

    So yea, while you post as me about how Iove SE, and how I’m a bitch (really credible BTW, only to a retard), they aren’t getting a dime from me. I will also do my level best to dissuade everyone I know or can reach from ever buying a SE product ever again.

    Just to give you a picture, I change 2-3 high end phones yearly, with out fail. I gift 5+ high end phones yearly. I influence a fair number of phone sales, these are different segments.

    So yea, I’m thinking that If more people like me really hate SE corporate policy as of now, and we do our thing, SE is out of a bit of cash, thanks to me and other like minded souls.

    While the company harps about the Arc, I doubt it will match the sales of even the X10. There are other companies which are providing a better android experience, better phones and a more time bound update plan. Why on earth would anyone with half a brain buy this product then?

  186. Came accross this news that an XDA member has filed a class action lawsuit with firm Edelson against T-Mobile and Samsung over violating the law of “Unfair and Deceptive Consumer Business Practices” due to the lack of updates for the Samsung Vibrant.

    Strongly believe that SE deserves the similar treatment particular by those who bought the phone on 1st week of Jan, 2011 and on 6th Jan., 2011 they got to know that SE has officially declared that they are not going to have Android firmware revision any longer for all the existing Xperia series phones.

    It is being said that this decision is made for making room for their next phone Arc. But… with this kind of mean strategy, are they going to make good market for Arc or oppositely they have put its future in dark?

  187. @ fooled

    I would love to see that happen. If enough people are interested and contribute, it makes a decent kitty to take on even the corporate legal budget. Corportaions don’t take legal threat seriously, from individuls, because, frankly, they can out spend/ out last one in court.

    Class action would really shake them up.

  188. @ fooled

    First of all, I want to thank you for sharing. Secondly, there is something very important here which is, read with me :

    they have continuously lied to us about the hardware, and software reliability of this phone, they promised us updates (to 2.2! Not the functionally dead JI6 2.1!) over and over, NOW they plan to release NEW galaxies without updating the old ones they currently have. The GPS is clearly a hardware defect. There are just too many issues with this phone and the Customer service reps have been combativeeven bullying and threatening customers!

    a clear violation of US law

    The Huge difference here is that samsung promised a 2.2 upgrade and they never delivered it on time. However, this is not the case at all with SE, so I don’t believe people have the right to charge SE for something they never promised.

    Just for the record this is not the first time that samsung promised to upgrade to a certain update and they failed their promise. For example, the samsung behold was also promised to be upgraded to 2.1 but it never surpassed 1.6.

    That’s why even with se flaws at least I respect them because they are honest. Although, I must admit no one is perfect.

  189. I think I’ve mentione this before, somewhere. Google really needs to step in and have some sort of regulation for Android devices/ device makers.

    Half assed attempts like the X10 are irreparably tarnishing the image of Android. One moves on to another platform after this sort of let down.

    Say what you want about WP7, but the way MS has imposed strict guidelines makes one feel comfortable with the idea that one will not bear the brunt of a company’s gross neglect.

  190. @ Fact is Fact.

    Samsung is a bad parallel if one want’s to see how Android sould be progresing. I’d rejected the idea of ever using a Samsung even if I was given one for free. Moto also have abandoned some high end models.

    On the other hand, look at HTC and LG. HTC has updated even their newer economy models to froyo. LG is doing fine too. Dell looks promising too.

    You say SE never lied, I say they did. There was loose talk about the update schedule for the X10. This was afterwards denied to have happened. Well, for the Arc, it’s much the same. Apart from a few words about how they have learned their lesson, where is the road map for the year 2011? The “loose talk” about the timely updates for the Arc will be denied bu this company and all it’s fans when the Arc fails to update.

    Fuck promises, look at the market, look at the products and look at the companies’ support for their buyers and then tell me which company is good and which is bad. By my lights, SE is not in the “Good” court.

  191. @Niten

    Like I asserted earlier no one is perfect! Let’s be honest with ourselves, I don’t think that there is a company that is completely honest and like a flying angel. Having said that, I do agree that HTC is the best manufacturer that truly supported their customers with regular updates.

    And yes I agree that the image of android is getting worse every moment because of what manufacturers are allowed to do to their current customers. And although I’m not a fan of apple and never had an iphone, but I do indeed appreciate that a lot of their customers didn’t face what most of android customers are angry and complaining about. In fact, many of apple’s customers are satisfied and happy. I don’t give a damn if they are being reasonable or not all I care about is that they are satisfied.

    Therefore, this brings me to my main point which is every user should do his homework well to avoid frustration and dissatisfaction in the future! Most of you by now know about android’s flaws and it’s problems. So please don’t repeat the same mistake and end up crying like a kid! Choose what suits you, and if an update is that important for you, maybe it’s better to choose for your self another platform or just buy a google phone.

  192. This is one of the interesting comments I read in the forum that the user fooled posted :

    ” All you suckers that bought into samsung’s lies and bought a vibrant deserve what you got! You could have learned from the behold 2 and galaxy (original) update debacles, but you chose to ignore samsung’s track record. No sympathy for you. Many of you called behold owners whiners for voicing the same complaints, well…STOP WHINING!”

    You know what it’s true, and I totally agree with him. Next time, just do your homework instead of jumping and buying any phone. And if you know that there will be a chance that you might not get regular updates from a certain manufacture and yet buy the phone than seriously you deserve what you get and you deserve to feel what your feeling now.

    Bottom line, nothing is perfect and their isn’t a certain brand with out problems or flaws. It all depends on your needs and what’s important for you. So, please don’t blame others for your wrong decisions.

  193. @ Fact is Fact

    Good to see that you agree SE is not the best when it comes to longevity of their phones (aka. updates).

    On to the next part of your post, I have done my research. Buying the X10 is an experience which is more invaluable than all the claims by the manufacturer. It gave me first hand knowledge about how this company will not update their phones when it’s not hard at all to do. It’s not like their UI is HTC Sense and people are crazy for it. Most people I know positively dislike the X10 UI. They can junk their UI and push Froyo/ Gingerbread in a very short time, but no. They will not.

    So Yeah, what you call “Crying like a kid” is me voicing what is important to me. Updates. I am also steering anyone who gives a damn for them away from this company which has a pathetic update record (that’s my experience and research talking).

    I don’t care if they update the X10. I don’t use it anymore. I also won’t buy the Arc, even if they push Gingerbread to the X10 tomorrow. SE has lost massive face over the X10. They might decide to save that and push updates. I don’t care. I’m not giving them another cent.

  194. @Niten

    I’m very sorry to here about the bad experience you had dude. I just hope you give SE another chance because I indeed think they have amazing and unique products. And let’s not forget the fact that they recently entered the android world and they are still learning.

    Anyhow, what ever you choose in the future, is your choice for sure. I hope you’ll be happy and satisfied with it 🙂

    And I apologize for the misunderstanding that happened earlier between us,


  195. Ok sorry

    Never maind
    i just didnt read prop

    Nitin January 15, 2011 at 6:08 PM


    Fuck you! I do what I want here, and I enjoying being a bitch, it’s non of your business. Yes I am stupid, short, and ugly. But this is the way I was created and I accept it.

  196. Ok, so you made a BIG mistake.
    Now, how will you compensate all your customers that did the mistake buying your “mistakes”.
    The only way is to give us furious customers a huge rebate on the new phones.
    Otherwise your old customers will be your worst enemies.
    I will absolutely not recommend Sony Ericson for anyone before I’ve got a compensation from you.

  197. Guys when, where did you bought X10
    I did get good support in X10

    My X10 was 3 time in repair and I have to wait a week for my e-mail to respond.
    and it was very unsupportive

  198. @ baboons

    I think it was obvious I hadn’t posted that?

    @ Fact is Fact.

    I do not hate you because the SE X10i was a distasteful experience. I dislike how you are misleading people on these forums. You have claimed quite a bit for the Arc, about how the company will magicallu change. I think the opposite is true. Anyways, peace out.

  199. @Nitin
    I think it was not so obviouse
    You have to admit that this is confusing
    who is who ??

    And I am sorry again
    But some post are really below and bandwidth of normal good bevaviour and some of them was really like a baboons

  200. Damn you lying bastards!!
    They are trying to trick us again…
    Tbh the only reason i brought the x10 is because it looked nice…
    Even that Tv companys 1st phone looks better than the Arc or what ever they are calling it!
    Paying off the rest of my contract soon!

    Screw you sony.

  201. the reason why people are still here on X10 Blog, is because they still own the dam*ed phone, not that they like sony ericsson, or the new Xperia Arc!

    WE are here because of the X10!

    Not because we are hoping for SE to support us further (if they do, then that is JUST. they did earned a lot with that promise ‘upgradable to future android version’. if i had known they will not support anything above 2.1, then i might have gone with samsung, which is already on 2.1 by the time i bought my phone), but to look for solution WHERE SE LEFT US ON OUR OWN!

  202. @fact is fact are you so desperate for SE to notice you and, IDK, hire you as their PR guy that you’re STILL defending them? I saw your posts first back in Sept.

    Jesus, don’t you leave this blog at all?

    The fact is SE screwed us over, simple as that. There’s no justification in abandoning their current flagship phone in less than a year it’s out.

    And of course most people of the X10 Family customers won’t buy a SE product again… unless they have some mental issues

  203. @bandit

    As i said before some people should visit specialist. By now you are the gratest example of it>
    You should take a medicine to calm your self down. Because your brain will be overloaded and then will be overheated and this may damage the monkey brain!

    Can some call ambulance other way we will lose this creature!

  204. According to the research X10 cause the serious brain damage !!
    Research was taken in 295 creatures and the result are as above

  205. Now I’m not a genius when it comes to software, but looking at the XDA forums, I see the JIT enabler for 2.1 has been released…is it not possible for Sony to do an official version of that to at least give users the speed increase they deserve? Believe it or not, on the 2.1 update, the applications drawer is even more laggy and unpresonsive then it was in 1.6!

    What a shame. Terrific hardware (still best looking Android out there – better then ARC in my opinion which at first glance looks like another Iphoney knock off cough..cough…like most Samsung devices) which gets slated in articles and stuff as being a faliure, yet it could easy haev another 12 months in market, reduced in price as Sony’s mid-end model – perhaps a new colour or two like silver to keep it fresh. I think they just want to consign it to the bit, forget about it, out of sight out of mind…and you know what Sony, I love the look of the ARC and it has a good performance and the Exmor thing is just what I’ve been waiting for in a phone…but your cavalier attitude, you blew it. HTC all the way from now on. As the little guy on the block, they HAVE to try harder.

  206. hi

    don’t you see where is the real problem? The problem is that that X10 is actually a piece of good hardware, able to handle newest androids. So the question for SE is: how to force customers to buy new phones if old are almost as same as new. The answer is that what they did. They stopped updating system. Want new system? Buy new phone. As simple as that. I’m angry too. Bought my X10 last month, and was hoping for WiFi tethering update.

  207. One word….. Compensation
    surely legally SE are in a bad place with this situation….
    Why not compensate all us SE owners who were duped….?

  208. If the comments on this blog represents the average X10-owner,
    you definitly deserve to be ditched by SE.

    If a single one of you could manifest some kind of creativity,
    you would suggest a voucher or similar for an upgrade to arc with a discount.

    But it seems most of you is to filled up with mental rubbish to accomplish any kind
    of brainwork.

    admin, please shut down the commenting function, this is just subpar.

  209. I have my Xperia X10 in the USA and love it but wish I could get my upgrade to 2.1 and higher. Even though it is outdated even with 1.6 Android I can do things with my SE that my boss can’t do with his Dorid. Please don’t leave us Xperia x10 customers high and dry. I had researched phones for 4 months and this is the one that I wanted and still want.


  210. Right, we’ve cleaned a lot of the comments from this post.

    We will be dishing out IP bans for those that cannot keep their comments clean and continue to mask themselves as other commenters. There are only a small number doing this – you know who you are. Last warning.

  211. @ t- rex.

    SE propaganda patrol? Don’t want to hear how people feel about SE? I suggest reading their forums, because any sign of frustration is censored and hidden there.

    Forget what the average X10 owner deserves. The chicken or egg question doesn’t apply here. SE definitely ditched it’s customers and THEN most said, fuck SE, in many ways.

    Some people grasp at all sorts of straws to defend this excuse of a company, and I see you’re a new addition to that.

  212. @nitin

    > SE propaganda patrol?
    No, see post 94.

    > Don’t want to hear how people feel about SE?
    Without decent language or thought, no.

    > Some people grasp at all sorts of straws to defend this excuse of a company, and I see you’re a new addition to that.
    Argumentative fallacy.

    admin, please shut down the commenting function, this is just subpar.

    Speaking of arguementative fallacies, the above post is one such on the whole. Equating people’s reactions to shoddy treatment dished out by this company to it’s customers, (The aggressive reaction is a REACTION, not the ACTION that prompted the reaction), and saying that the treatment is justified is just messed up.

    The people reacted because ofwhat the company did, not the way you say it, with SE abandoning the consumer because the average consumer was obnoxious. Get your facts straight bro.

    I’m sorry if you find the average post offensive, but then offensive is subjective, and IMO fucktard is too much of an understatement for this company.

  214. Finally the Admin took a step ahead and did something he should have been doing a long time ago. I believe if the policy regarding commenting was more strict non of this would have happened in the first place.

    Anyway, looking forward for a more clean and mature blog with less childish and offensive language.


  215. @nitin,

    Please note that some of the most obscene comments now has been removed, which puts my reaction a bit out of context, never the less, thank you admin.

    I respect your opinions about previous post, but I belive you misinterpret it. Also, you shouldn’t be personally offended by it, which your well written argumentation proofs.

    I agree on that SE treats X10-owners like shit, but behaving like non creative stereotype ghetto wannabies doesn’t make anything better, it just discredits this blog, and diminsh any kind of impact it may have in the future.


  216. @ t- rex

    There is some truth to what you say, but look at it this way.

    SE shafted the X10 buyers, big time. It continues to do so and, as far as I know, has no intention of any good will gesture aka. discounts/ boot loader unlock/ vanilla froyo/ gingerbread push etc.

    SE has more or less made it’s stand clear, can one really blame people for venting then?

    On a parting note, this blog is not being discredited. How can mass opinion be discredited? It is a real object, the opinion you, I and various othyers have formed in our minds. The only one being discredited is SE in various forums/ blogs globally. All SE X10 buyers know the truth behind SE’s public face, and are wary of the company. Word is spreading to potential buyers etc.. The one who has to work on credibility is not us, who might be a little uncouth at times, but SE, who, though the epitome of civility, has dished out such shoddy treatment to people who actually supported the company by buying it’s product.


  217. The fact is that this website provide more information about the X10 than the official one, is a sign of how ignorant is the company. The question is, did they learn? My answer is no, because this site provided a date about the dual touch update in Japan, where the official one still showcasing the arc!!! Its sad to see even people reconsidering this company’s product.

  218. So are hey going to reinburse me for my phone,of make sure they give us the new ARC,when it comes out, because I just bought my phone,n I WAS GUARANTEED, THIS PHONE WILL GET ALL ANDROID UPDATES, BECAUSE THIS PHONE WS SO MUCH MORE ADVANCED THN OTHER PHONES, AND I WOULD NOT HVE TO BUY ANOTHER PHONE FOR YRS, BECAUSE W/ THE UPDATES,IT WOULD KEEP MY PHONE UP W/NEW ONES. ANDWAS AN INVESTMENT……AND IT WAS A SONY!!!! ………NOW. DON’T KNOW BOUT YOU BUT $700 is a heck of a lot of money for me, n. We we’re told this phone would get new updates, ALL ANDROID UPDAT ES… SONY NEEDS TO FOLLOW THRU N KEEP THEIR WORD … now wht……..we are all left w/ a phone that. Barely runs comared to other ANDROID PHONES,BECUZ THEY WANNA TURN N RUN……..IF YOU NOT GONNA KEEP YPUR WORD N UPDATE OUR PHONES……..R

  219. Haha, this site start to turn into or
    When people are pissing off with SE decision not to deliver 2.2, off course we need forum to express our anger. We do it at SE blog will get deleted or never show up.
    While most of us try to fart at SE fanboy like that guy keep saying the SE is good which in fact SE is suck. What he dis is adding gases on fire, or you can call it “step on our face”.
    If don’t want people to fxxk SE but still want to update us on little “update” for X10, X10 you better lock th comment section.

  220. Something I don’t understand, … must be nice to be able to run your cimoany like. You have A.D.H.D…..your all about what’s in front of you. ..tul something new comes along, then you get frustrated, , then you want to only work on the NEW ARC….then you say….oh welll tired of daaing w/ thatone, … hell w/those X10 people,. Let that phone fall by the wayside.., let’s jus play w/the new toy…..the Arc………COME ON PEOPLE, …..SERIOUSLY, THAT’S HOW YOU RUN YOUR COMPANY……..YOU TELL LIES. TO SELL THE PRODUCT, N THEN TURN N RUN WHEN YOU GET FRUSTRATED….N THINK…..WHAT DO YOU CARE YOU ALREADY GOT OUR MONEY……N LEAVE US HANGIN, WHEN. EVERYTHING YOU are not doing, is EXACTLY, WHAT YOU SAID TO PROMOTE THIS PHONE!!….YOI DON’T JUST SHIT ON YOU CUSTOMRES WHO UT THEIR FAITH ON YOU!!!!!…….HELL WE STILL HAVEN’T BEEN GIVEN THE 2.1 UPDATE YET……N I LIVE IN ATLANTA, GA. .WHERE YOUR CORP OFFICE IS

  221. – How people can be happy without any updates for this juicy lime?

    – I understand that we are left with no choice , so be happy with whatever we have ! but still how can someone can be thankful to SE for this? Are they doing justice to our investment ?
    – Some people (dono if they are Sony employee..but still) pricing Sony as if they have given them the best ! omg I dont understand !
    – 8 mega pix ? led Flash? is that what we look in a phone? A $30 china phone can do better if that is what is wanted!! please 2.2 or 2.3 is way ahead !!

    – I see a lot fake post ( looks like same guys trying to price sony for money or a free arc? god know) Why do this to this forum??
    – And some people are so happy as if sony has released 2.3 in japan !!! and some says DT is much better than 2.2 , please know what is froyo before even comparing it with DT !!
    – Some one says eating bad meat is better than eating grass and see others eating… I rather eat grass and buy the good meat for the next meal !

    I gave up and just sold me X10 yesterday..

    good luck for all those SE lovers who are happy with X10

    Well I wish so…Its time for people like me to go take crap on his mouth , whoever has made the decisions to stop the updates…

  222. @fact is fact
    You are the one who provoked all the frustrated customers.
    And you act like a clean boy ?????

    I lost hope in SE now. Because they release Arc and they are never gonna concentrate on x10 again. I cant afford new smart phone each and every year to run with latest technology.

    I regret now buying this costly brick. Next time – Nexus – I am sure.
    Learned a big lesson

  223. May be the admin/moderator should consider to put up a counter for X10 user tat putting options such as
    (1) I am fanboy of SE
    (2) I throw my X10
    (3) Trade In
    (4) Keep it on display to remind me on lesson learn
    by putting their valid email or even imei, serial number etc and pass the result to SE. Then a new Arc is giving to a voter that do not choose (1).

  224. I got my “hexed” 10 on contract before the pathetic ericsson announcement came that they were gonna fuck it off and leave us all with a obselete phone. The way i felt when this happened was total despair and hopelessness. AS IF THE DISGUSTING CALL VOLUME AND CALL QUALITY WASNT A BIG ENOUGH PROBLEM IN ITS SELF !!!!!
    Any way….i got rid and put money together to get a HTC DESIRE HD……AND OH MY GOD !!! WOW !!! ITS INFINITE TIMES BETTER THAN THE “HEXED” 10 !!! WHAT A PHONE !!

  225. F U Sony Ericsson!!!!!! Never again will I ever waste time and money on your pos phones. I have made it a point to tell everyone I meet to stay away! HTC for me from now on!!!

  226. i got this x10 a , as a gift from my son working in U.S.Some ‘expert’ told me it can be made operational with little modifications, to work in U.S. as well as our country.
    Fell to his advice but the phone worked!!.
    Battery drains quickly and red lights flicker.Takes a long time sometimes days for battery to pick have to clean the Sim and memory card and reinsert sometimes.most of the times you are not lucky, and phone remains dead.Appears hardware problem, but operators think it is software related.
    3 months gone and after having faced all the problems, the phone doesn’t work anymore now.!!
    Being an unsuspecting mistake in falling for the advice,now I feel the loss for losing the precious gift brought to me from my son!!

  227. I’ll not be buying Sony Ericsson again! I fell completely cheated! Tied to a 2 year contract with 3! They can go fuck themselves as well! Noone from their sales staff advised that you couldn’t view half the clips on the web. Sony Ericsson suck!!!!!!!!!!!!! Xperia X10 is SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
