Tech news, reviews and code samples!

Well sticking to true Sony Ericsson Style, the Sony Xperia X10 update has been pushed back once again leaving the thousands of crazed Android hungered fans waiting for a real update yet again. This time Sony is promising an “End of October launch through November”.

Sony claims to need a couple more weeks for fine tuning of the software and promises it will be released (really, it will, someday!) and promises to add more features to the line up (read the list below). The last sad bit of news is that Sony has reported the update will be rolled out by “kit” meaning (sony’s words) “What we mean by a “kit” is a different configuration, i.e. colour of the phone, bundled accessories but most importantly in this case different software configurations.”

That’s about all anyone knows for now folks, looks like this waiting game isn’t over just yet….
