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

4. Nov 15, 2011 1:45 AM (in response to uliwooly-wooly)

Re: take a look n think again...bout x8 android 2.1!!!!

Hi,

Here is the information I have been provided regarding this:

"The XperiaTM X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8 all have less RAM memory than XperiaTM X10. By this we can't guarantee a good user experience. The upgrade of XperiaTM X10 also was made possible due to that we had a code base that mostly could be reused. For the mini's, who have a different user interface, this possibility did not exist."

There was also another statement made online which I'm currently unable to locate however the above information is what was stated on the matter.

Re: Android Gingerbread 2.3 update set for August

thanks for your reply uliwooly

I did try the "cook" you suplied in your responce, unfortunatly I can't say the results were satisfactoury, the performance and the problems I had were realy disapointing.

thank you any way, I just wanted to make sure that what I understood basicly (no 2.3 for minis') has not changed.

I realy thought I was stupid smile happy
