Xperia Range Receiving Maintenance Upgrades

Sony Ericsson has announced that their current range of Xperia products – namely the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, X10 Mini, X10 Mini Pro, and the X8 – will be receiving maintenance upgrades to fix bugs and add new features. (Sorry folks: no Froyo for you.) The update will add Arabic, Hebrew, Farsi, and Thai languages, will enable the ANT+ technology that we heard about yesterday, and more.

And most importantly, the Xperia X10 will finally receive multitouch. (Sorry, Minis: no love for you here.) A full list of changes can be found below. The Xperia X10 should be receiving its update starting today, with rollouts for the rest beginning within the week. [via Sony Ericsson]

  • Moxier in an updated version (2.7.13) that includes a great overview widget for e-mail, calendar and tasks.

  • Possibilities of trimming videos in the phone.

    meh. too little, too late SE. i’ve been running zdzihu’s froyo beta for weeks on my x10. super stable and is in a constant state of dev – always getting better. XDA has gingerbread ROMS, CyanogenMod Roms and all sorts for FroYo roms for the x10 now – we dont need SE anymore. Oh yes, they all have multi(dual) touch also.
