It’s not been many days when Sony Ericsson had announced its plan (or rather drop the plan) against rolling out the newer versions of Android for Xperia X10. Though, company has been under tremendous criticism and pressure towards such decision, till now it has avoided any further announcement towards re-considering its decision. Rather, it has promised some significant updates (company claims as best feature ever on any Android 2.1 handset) for Xperia X10 users on current version of Android.

The first of them will be introduced multi-touch (dual touch) functionality while the other one will spruce up the Timescape and Mediascape applications. Japan’s NTT Docomo customers will be the first to receive this update. However, if you are among impatient Xperia X10 users who cant wait to have the charm of multitouch, you don’t have to be ant the mercy of your carrier or Sony Ericsson to enable dual-touch on your X10.

Bina4y from xda-developers forum has released a patch that should add dual touch support to any ROM for the Xperia X10. The hotfix requires the use of Flashtools, and while the installation procedure is fairly simple, it is not for the faint hearted. If you are not comfortable with messing around with Android, it is highly recommended that you wait for the official update. If you have a rooted handset, you should also follow this guide to enable dual-touch support on all apps that can make use of it.

The biggest benefit of the aforementioned hotfix is that it will enable the pinch-to-zoom gesture on apps like Browser, Angry Birds and Maps.

Surprisingly, Sony Ericsson has given deaf ears to all criticism and feedback towards its decision to avoid any newer Android update for Xperia X10. While thousands on hundreds of Xperia X10 users have filed a suite against the decision, many analyst feel that company will witness significant market loss of users as they will feel embittered.
