For all you Sony Ericsson lovers out there it seems SE might be getting closer to an official release of 2.3.3 Gingerbread for the Xperia X10. The Xperia X10 was originally launched on Android 1.6 and the wait for a newer version of Android was a long road if you were waiting for an official release. It took until the end of May of this year for the X10 to get Android 2.1 and 2.3 has been around for a while, but we are now seeing what looks to be an official version running on the Xperia X10.

A new video now being seen over on YouTube is showing the X10 at the Thailand Mobile Expo 2011 running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, being updated 16M colors on the display, and if we are reading the information right possibly even an unlocked bootloader like SE has mentioned they'd be doing soon. We weren't sure if that policy was for future devices only but it looks like they may be unlocking older phones as well.

There is also talk of not only the X10 getting that tasty Gingerbread but it will also be receiving a new kernel that should speed things up and make it fly like the Xperia Arc. Sony originally announced the X10 would get 2.3 in Q2/Q3 so according to this things look right on track. This is a good sign considering how extremely long it took for them to deliver on Android 2.1 for X10 and other SE users. For now check out the video below and hopefully we here more on that bootloader soon.
