Sony Ericsson recently confirmed that they are planning to update the entire Xperia line-up which was released in 2011 but the name of famous Xperia X10 was missing from the update list though Sony Ericsson is still selling the model in smartphone market. Absence of Xperia X10 from the update list may be because of its incompetent hardware specification consisting of 384 MB RAM, 1 GHz Scorpion processor and Adreno 200 GPU, all embedded in Qualcomm QSD8250 Snapdragon chipset.

Martina Johansson from Sony Ericsson confirm,”There have been a few questions here on the blog and in our support forums regarding our upgrade plans beyond Gingerbread. We can today confirm that we plan to upgrade the entire 2011 Xperia™ portfolio* to the next version of Android known as Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich. We are working on merging our current Xperia™ experience with the new features in Android 4.0.”

Sony Ericsson released a list of all supported smartphone models that will get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update soon or later. The supported smartphones are given below.

  • Xperia Arc
  • Xperia Arc S
  • Xperia Play
  • Xperia Neo
  • Xperia Neo V
  • Xperia Mini
  • Xperia Mini Pro
  • Xperia Pro
  • Xperia Active
  • Xperia Ray
  • Live with Walkman

So, we can see that the list is huge but the absence of X10 is really disappointing for X10 smartphone users.

  1. I have an X10 and the upgrade to it’s most current version (I think 2.1) has rendered the phone in awful shape. My video freezes for seconds making video rendering utterly useless. My phone sometimes takes 20-30 seconds just to open simple functions (my phone call log).

    I think the software may just be too taxing on the hardware and that is why they don’t want to upgrade. I wish I was on 1.6 again (I know sad….). At least my phone worked better.

    X10 has lost another customer as soon as my plan is up for renewal.
