Sony Ericsson’s Rikard Skogberg has laid out the full details of the latest firmware update that is starting to roll out. This update is for the whole Xperia X10 family (including X8), but there are slightly different features between each.
All handsets get new language support (including Arabic, Farsi, Thai and Hebrew) and bug fixes. However, dual-touch support will be supported by the Xperia X10 only. X10 mini and X8 owners may be consoled to know that ANT+ support has been added for fitness products such as heart rate monitors. Sound like bit of a raw deal to us.
Other improvements include an updated version of Moxier (2.7.13) that includes a new widget, a new Moxier plug-in for Timescape, video editing, as well as some ‘minor’ changes to Mediascape. What hasn’t been clarified though is whether or not this is the promised UXP update. He also didn’t confirm what firmware build number is rolling out, we believe it is version 2.1.A.0.435.
Rikard confirmed that the rollout has started now for the Xperia X10 and will start within a week for the X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8. However, as before, different kits will be released on different timescales depending on when these kits are approved. You will be able to update the phone from PC Companion or over-the-air (OTA).
