Sony Ericsson has confirmed that it has dropped DLNA, one of the features it promised for the Xperia X10 last May. The feature had to be “de-scoped” due to a number of changes since the original announcement including adding pinch-to-zoom as well as splitting the Android 2.1 update into two parts. All is not lost however, as there are a number of third-party DLNA apps out there on the Android Market (iMediaShare is a good start).
Rikard Skogberg answered a number of other questions in a Q&A on the SE Product Blog including a reiteration that Android 2.2/2.3 will not be heading to the X10. In questions about the bootloader he said that Sony Ericsson doesn’t have a solution in place to secure the handset whilst opening the bootloader without breaking “legal agreements with many of our partners”.
