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]
