SE Brazil says Xperia X10 getting 4-point multitouch in next update

by X10 on July 10, 2011

in Firmware, News

Four point touchSony Ericsson Brazil has said that the Xperia X10 will receive four-finger multitouch in the upcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. This was refuted by Sony Ericsson’s Rikard Skoberg a few weeks back, but SE Brazil seem insistent that the display’s drivers will be updated to allow 4-point multitouch from the current dual touch display.

SE Brazil said on Facebook a week ago “here in Brazil the advice received was that the X10 will update multi touch 4 points (translated)”. There has been so much misinformation that we can’t be sure that this will be included, but hopefully there’s not too long to find out.

SE Brazil is weird… they reveal all things before the highest Instance of Sony Ericsson does 😀

3 zorro July 10, 2011 at 9:59 PM

@ David. Whats up with the FIRST! shit?

4 David July 10, 2011 at 10:10 PM

Don’t be jealeous because you did not get the first 😀

5 Adyblers July 10, 2011 at 10:23 PM

I’ll believe it when I see it. Not holding my breath.

6 MEDO July 10, 2011 at 11:15 PM

@ David

you are like a little child who sits all day waiting for a new topic just to write FIRST
who cares if you are first

if you have a good comment, or an idea about something or useful tip write it
Shut the hell up

7 duszaspc July 10, 2011 at 11:55 PM

8 =NoXiouS= July 10, 2011 at 11:57 PM

4 point multitouch? Cool! What is it good for that I could use 4 point on right away?

9 Rilley July 11, 2011 at 12:12 AM

Saddly I didn’t get the first place. U’re Lucky @ David.

10 Chris Merriman July 11, 2011 at 12:24 AM

Everything that SE South America has said has turned out to be bollocks.

11 Sliganslogan July 11, 2011 at 2:44 AM

if this is real i will be so happy with SE that i might just trust them again… i hope it is true so i can finally play games without it messing at the axis’s

12 Steven July 11, 2011 at 3:46 AM

Wasn’t SE Brazil the first one to say that we’d get Gingerbread at all? That was a huge announcement and what they say is certainly not to be discounted.

13 Pak Ya July 11, 2011 at 3:56 AM

NOT put lot of confident on this news. Better wait for update release.
Playing games with 4-multifocus sound nice!

14 Pak Ya July 11, 2011 at 3:58 AM

Last topic you were also the first, am i right to think you have no life and are refreshing this side every 5 seconds to be first again next time? XD

19 Zeb July 11, 2011 at 11:50 AM

somebody please also say we are getting 16m display colors too that will be a very pleasing thing to hear

20 Justas July 11, 2011 at 12:11 PM

yeah, i hope we get 16m colors too, and about the fps cap i don’t really care since xda-developers will unlock it 🙂 especially now, when the bootloader will be cracked soon 🙂

21 poppa tooche July 11, 2011 at 12:27 PM

f i r s t 🙂

22 Patrick July 11, 2011 at 12:34 PM

It has been confirmed several Times’ that SE Will not include 16m colours. For that we have to rely on XDA

23 marata July 11, 2011 at 1:08 PM

i don’t believe anything, that doesn’t come from Rikard Skogberg.

DAVID is unemployed, he’s sitting the whole day at his desk refreshing this page and waits for new news!!!

24 lghost July 11, 2011 at 1:17 PM

in my experience with SE Brazil, most of their clarification are wrong in the end, so please everyone, just let this rumor die willya? If there is possibility of 4 multitouch, it should be release (by XDA of course) long time ago .

25 ianthetaxman July 11, 2011 at 1:30 PM

Whatcha gonna use four touch for anyway??? Decent two fingered multi touch should be enough???

26 lghost July 11, 2011 at 1:33 PM

well, if XY axis problem still there, even you have 10 finger touch is consider useless.

27 Sexy Jasmin July 11, 2011 at 4:16 PM

Common guys, leave David alone, maybe he just had some lucky moments, don’t tell me you are perfect, this is just childish.

Don’t you think it is better being angry at SE then brother in mobile?? 😀

28 Manju@x10 July 11, 2011 at 5:06 PM

Can any one tell when is the release date in india?????????????????????????????????????

29 macedonia July 11, 2011 at 5:46 PM

32 Engin July 11, 2011 at 8:01 PM

The lcd screen do not support 16 m colours im afraid but you can not give a screen more colour with a software . the realease shall start with german kits as planned 2nd of aug

33 David July 11, 2011 at 8:27 PM

I am emloyed… and I like the Blog site on facebook… so I klicked the news and got first… that’s all 😀

34 rsto July 11, 2011 at 8:46 PM

@ Engin
If it is true, it will be really awesome. I especially like the axis issue is solved and also that the update release date isnt in second half of august

35 you_suck July 11, 2011 at 9:54 PM


i dont care about 4 touch. just fix the XY axis problem!

36 eX-X10 user July 12, 2011 at 1:35 AM

I bet all I have (and more) that the update will be delayed…remember 2.1, same company’s software for the same phone with the same customer base. My money is on an October release at the earliest…

37 eX-X10 user July 12, 2011 at 1:38 AM

@ all david haters — just because he got this news before you don’t hate him

@MEDO – You only commented on david being first but are obnoxious enough to contradict yourself in your own post, to put it in your own words
“if you have a good comment, or an idea about something or useful tip write it
Shut the hell up”

38 Peosea July 12, 2011 at 4:44 AM

@ eX-X10 user : I bow to your wisdom sir!

SE, all I’m trully asking is an update with a decent flash player. Please don’t screw this up… :-/

39 zorro July 12, 2011 at 7:26 AM

@ eX-X10 user
Personally I think that writing ( FIRST! ) isn’t a useful tip or an idea. WTF does that have to do with this topic?

No hate here, just saying.

45 Trip FanBoy July 12, 2011 at 9:24 PM

trip is a piece of a shit arse dev for the x10 community.his roms are half cooked and no help when problems come out.he just goes on and make some new roms.and his claim to port over the bravia engine to the x10.then he really is a god as to be able to do the impossible.maybe he can port over eemor r lense and also upgrade the phone to quad core and not to mention make the battery last for a year with non stop off to trip and the all are making the x10 community a dump hole with all those stupid remarks.he is a good developer my arse.if he were to volunteer to clean my toilet bowl.i will also reject.cause he failed and failed and depends on lies to get by

46 Guest01 July 13, 2011 at 4:36 AM

let’s just wait for the update to come….

BTW is there no moderator in this forum? most comments are are already out of the topic.

47 rsto July 13, 2011 at 3:09 PM

@ Trip FanBoy
You are damn true. Trip is useless. His widely popular, fast and stable MiUI roms and unfortunatelly unfinished TripNArc project? Bah… You obviously sparkle with experiences and skills when you cant even use capital letters or spaces after periods…
World needs more pesimists and haters like you instead of awesome developers like Trip who spend lots of hours to release a stable rom for us.
His MiUI roms are fully functional, although i dont like the Apple-like design, and despite TripNArc rom being unfinished, it was fast, stable and one of best looking out there!

SE Brazil Facebook (google translate):
“Nimrod, we would like to portray information about the multitouch 4 points for the X10 update with android. In fact, it will not happen. We apologize for the misinformation.”

NO 4-point multitouch

51 Trip July 14, 2011 at 5:35 AM

first.trip is a pussy for releasing stupid things.bravia engine? about exemor r lense for us the meantime release quad core.trip is fast and stable?he is.on his way to hell.all you bootlickers really need some life out of making trip the best arsehole in the earth.lets just be honest and admit there is no bravia engine in his the fuck you going to port hardware via software.i should think you all uses your shit hole to think instead of your fucking brain to think.a simple thing also cant be solved

52 duo July 14, 2011 at 9:45 AM

xperia duo is on its way….12mp , 2500 battery, 1.4 dual core, 1.5gb ram,4.5inch qHDscreen

53 rsto July 14, 2011 at 3:18 PM

@ Trip
Bravia ENGINE – it is software enhancing of multimedia and it is not hardware related…
He has never mentioned any hardware upgrades (processor nor exmor r lens), so whats your problem? Do you have some psychical problem, prejudices or did you brick your phone using his rom?!? Or do you just envy him?
Im not saying he is the best out there, but hes hell of a good developer. Get over it…

54 Trip FanBoy July 14, 2011 at 4:32 PM

so why the heck you so carried off anyway.if its software then every dev also can do can sony.but why no people do it.cause trip is a fucking hoax.yeah.i do envy him to be honest.he got such loyal slaves to be his dogs.and you must be one of his dogs and seeing your angry face and must be kicked aside to make way for another of his dog.woof woof.

55 void July 14, 2011 at 5:47 PM

2 Trip FanBoy. I have never used custom roms, but still i think trip is doing a good job. Just because we have alternative. So … leave this guy, if u dont like his roms – just do not use it.

56 nimrod July 14, 2011 at 8:37 PM

its about me i ask it and after that they sayd it wont have four and their will only be dual touch

57 yer maw July 14, 2011 at 9:06 PM

@trip fanboy, you are just a dumass that really envy other people jobs,oyu definately don’t have a clue pal,and you’re talking from your ass.If you don’t like his job then don’t use his roms and stick to your ignorant roms.

And whats with the SE fan boy-girl shit comments? OP definately doesn’t give a crap for keeping this blog clean!!!

58 Trip FanBoy July 14, 2011 at 9:20 PM

to void
if you dont fucking use any custom rom at do you know he is doing a good job?cause hearing people saying its good so you just follow suit?really no clue as to what you are supporting?dont just follow the crowd without any clue.brainless

to yew maw a dumbass.a dumbass that can spell better than you fucking did you know im talking from my ass?have you seen my ass talk?wow seems that you are the one without clue.have i said now im using his roms?show me where i said im using his those se fan boys and girls are giving shit comments and yours are not shit?

to rsto
trip is popular?oh well he is.since there are too many dogs and bootlickers to make him that shoo.go back to your owner and sit

59 Trip July 15, 2011 at 8:30 AM

final summary.trip is a born loser that has a lot of dogs at his disposal

60 void July 15, 2011 at 9:03 AM

@Trip FanBoy. I dont need custom rom in my phone, but Im working for IT company as a lead programmer. Im dealing with many thing including custom rommed devices. What i really wanna say – having alternative is great thing, even knowing this alternative might be not perfect. Is it sutch a hard point to understand, mr MegaBrain ?

Now, start you usual shit about spelling etc …

61 Mr Spell Checker July 15, 2011 at 9:40 AM

*Programmer (capital for title of something)
*want to
*an alterantive is a great thing

Just sayin’

62 TylerDurden July 15, 2011 at 9:42 AM

Funny thing about custom roms is that I’ve tried a few, I tried the trip one that got took down as he got moaned at for ripping off other developers work and not giving kudos where it should have been given.. or at least it seemed that way.. thing was that Rom was quite good. I’ve had a go at the caynogen Rom too but my fave is free x10 🙂 but even after all I’ve ended up back on official 2. 1 due to mainly the camera not working properly, and I didn’t like the camera UI in 2. 2 either. I’ve just got a few tweaks on 2. 1 like a modded keyboard with T9 and the arc home screen launcher and I’m happy enough with that 🙂 at least trip can program which I would like to know how to do so maybe a bit of envy there, but I can build, install and setup a computer domain 🙂 could he, could you? Who cares man we all know what we know and we do our thing accordingly. Point is he tries and ya can’t fault him for that 🙂

70 yer maw July 15, 2011 at 2:39 PM

trip fanboy I can see you are complaining about anyone’s comments,if you complain for other’s people roms, then you probably used it, otherwise it will be stupid complaining about something you don’t know, but it does not surprise me,you probably are doing this…

and 1 more thing..I SPELL IN THE WAY I FUCKIN’ LIKE!!!!

71 rsto July 15, 2011 at 2:50 PM

Nice! 😀 I love where this is heading!
Maybe it is off-topic warzone, but it is just so amusing to argue with silly hater 🙂
I like the Mr. Spellchecker name, especially since you give lessons of right spelling, but cant spell even Exmor R lens (not exemor r lense/ eemor r lense) nor properly write (spaces after period, use also commas and not just periods and what about capital letters? …)
I really dont wanna play your silly and primitively offensive game, I just cant understand how you can hate him so much… You obviously are not a dev whos work was used without credits and you obviously havent tried any of his custom roms, so whats your point??

72 Mr Spell Checker July 15, 2011 at 3:20 PM

Sorry, no hate here! Having a bit of fun, bored at work and enjoying reading the amazingly silly comment being posted here!

@void… In Russian… I’m typing as fast as I can!
@rsto… It’s called ‘irony’… I was being ‘ironic’, the fact it isn’t spelt correctly, because I knowingly used a capital ‘C’, oh never mind…

And it’s been mentioned a MILLION times that the X10 is incapable of mt… ONLY DUAL TOUCH!!! It’s an hardward issue.

And the best custom rom? Pac Man VC for my Wii…

73 Brian July 15, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Damn guys,
Who cares if his roms suck?! Flash to something else and move on. There was more than one custom rom for X10 last I checked. I tried several roms and flashed back to generic 2.1 a couple weeks ago in hopes of good stable 2.3 in August.
Most all the roms available are unusable to me because I can not stand the broken camera, the crashes, reboots, etc but I don’t flame the dev for his work.
2.3 will bring what I really want app2sd, adobe flash, and tethering so I’m happy… for now.
If we’re gonna get off topic, is there some custom roms you would recomend?

If my spelling sucks blame it on my X10 🙂

SE Brazil being a source of false hope again?
I’m waiting for that Skoberg guy (sorry, but I don’t know his name’s spellling, but you do get who I’m talking about, right?) to say confirm the falseness of this rumor. I’m not being negative, I’m just saying this is usually what happens?
Still, nice if this comes true. But then again I rarely use more than two fingers when using my smartphone.

76 Rashed July 16, 2011 at 7:59 PM


Try Achotjans ROM, it is very fast, stable and looks nice as well:). Regarding the flash on the camera, you know you can get apps which fix this problem such as vignette.

77 PeterL July 17, 2011 at 3:57 PM

80 Brian July 19, 2011 at 7:45 AM

You can get it with Lockbot pro ($3.49) And you can customize the slider and background. But it sometimes flashes the default lockscreen before the arc lock pops up. Also has htc, samsung,Iphone, etc lockscreens. Also a free version.

Budismo y compromiso social no se contradicen ni mucho menos porque para cambiar este mundo primero ha de cambiar el propio sujeto sin dejar de comprometerse con la justicia según sus posibilidades. Las dos cosas van a la par. El budismo y Jesús predican el vaciamiento del ego y el desasimiento, algo que es necesario para luchar contra la injusticia sin caer en el orgullo o en el protagonismo.
