Re: The real reason X8, x10 mini/pro, w8 won't get an update?

yeah I've seen cheap tablets and cheap android phones with really slow processors, not so much internal memory and a fraction of the RAM and they have at least froyo

Re: The real reason X8, x10 mini/pro, w8 won't get an update?

Then lets make a petition letter/signature campaign to have Sony Ericsson upgrade our smartphones (X8, W8, X10 Mini, X10 Mini Pro, and all SE owners that has Android 2.1 Eclair) to upgrade our smartphones to at least Android 2.2 and perhaps if possible Android 2.3.  Man we are paying money for these stuffs.  Our precious monies are not just easily picked up along the road, we worked hard for it and this is what we get when we buy Sony Ericsson smartphones?  Common guys.

Re: The real reason X8, x10 mini/pro, w8 won't get an update?

there were threads for that, but nothing happen, actually something did happen

1) the X10 got an update to 2.3.3 but it's full of bugs and major issues

2) we got the "explanation" tha tyou saw above, which doesn't add up

only 2011 Xperias will get Android 4.0, but I think they should release 2.3.7 to all Xperias. I don't know how will 2010 Xperias handle ICS, not even the Nexus One will get ICS. but it might work w/o Sony's UIX
