Trick or treat! Halloween is the day that you Xperia X10 owners will finally be stepped up to Android 2.1, says Sony Ericsson. After a long string of delays and more than a carved pumpkin-full of angry users, you guys will finally be able to enjoy a modern version of Android. Ericsson says that they’ll get it out that Friday night, literally meeting their “end of October” deadline by hours.


But – as anyone should come to expect from these update processes – don’t get mad if you don’t get it right away. They’ll start in the Nordic region Sunday, European countries Monday, and from there the process will be staggered throughout November. Those of you in other regions? Well… no word yet, but I don’t think they’re just going to call it quits after they’re done with Europe.

Xperia X10:

• HD video recording with continuous auto-focus for high quality videos
• Upgrade of the Android platform to Android 2.1
• New back up and restore application, with extended content back up
• 5 homescreens for apps, widgets, shortcuts and folders
• Social phonebook which automatically syncs contact pictures from Facebook and shows when your friends are online

Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro:

• Improved Bluetooth functionality with support for sending and receiving pictures, contacts and more
• New backup and restore application with extended content back up
• Automatic synchronization of your contact pictures between Facebook and your phone book
