New Xperia Upgrade Timeline Shows Android 2.1x, No Froyo?

We know the upgrade to Android 2.1 is coming for the suite of Xperia phones Sony Ericsson’s got out and about right now – and we know it should be headed our way before the jingle bells start ringing – but what about anything beyond that? According to a leaked roadmap for the X10 and its Mini offspring, the upgrade to Android 2.1 – which includes everything we’ve heard before such as HD video recording, 5 homescreens, social networking features, and more – will be followed by a smaller, incremental update that will bring upgrades to TimeScape and MediaScape.

It’s interesting to note that Android 2.2 doesn’t appear to be anywhere on this list, though that could just be by happenstance or for some unexplained reason (is there another page? Please tell me there’s information about Froyo on the next page! The suspense is killing me.)

    I have been wanting to get one of these phones for a while but I would like 2.1 before I get. It’s not really a deal breaker that 2.2 might not hit it.

    I almost bought an X10, but now I’m so glad I didn’t (instead got a Galaxy S). I didn’t think 2.2 would ever come, because 2.1 was then announced for Q4 (and still not here). In Australia one operator is giving it away free on one of their cheapest contracts (usually dominated by entry level smart phones and feature phones), I guess no one wants to buy it anymore.
    I really don’t understand why SE insist on customizing their firmware so much (most of the features which are already available on later OS releases or through apps) and risk loosing customers.If they had multi touch and a steady OS support, X10 would have had a much bigger impact, given its extremely stylish design, 4″ screen and 8MP camera.

    how long is the timeline. is that “this year” or is it “forever”

    i dont think 2.2 brings much to the table. what does is confirmaton 32gb cards will work with it, or sony has its own apps like creatouch that can be added to do things that get missed.

    also sony’s marketting needs sorting out. the products first release notes in the usa seemed to make all the same false claims that the european launch was blighted with, only as fact rather than rumour. eg “multitouch” was given as avaialble as was 32gb card use. it was as if the marketting people just took the htc desire claims and assumed they would work on any android phone.
