Sony Ericsson To Push Android 2.1 Update To X10 Handsets This Sunday

It’s that time again, folks: it’s time for Good News, Bad News!

Bad News: If you own a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handset, you’ve been waiting a pretty friggin’ long time for an update. But you already knew that, so I suppose it’s not really bad news. Hell, it’s probably not even technically news.

Good news: The wait is, at long last, over. Android 2.1 will start hitting X10 handsets beginning this weekend.

All three of the X10 handsets (the X10, the X10 Mini, and the X10 Pro) will start seeing updates this Sunday. Exactly when yours will be gettin’ the bumpgrade treatment is dependent on which handset you’ve got, where you live, and which carrier you’re on, though. SE says the upgrade process should be done by the end of November — in other words, there’s no real guarantee that you’ll be rocking a freshly polished handset for at least a few weeks.

The first people to get the update will be those with non-carrier branded handsets in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland). Everyone else? Well.. better super later than never, right?

Of course, it’s worth highlighting that this is 2.1, and not the considerably more current 2.2. Maybe that should have been the bad news.
