Aggravated users are to asking Sony Ericsson to make a technology jump to Android 2.1. T-Mobile UK has just announced that users can expect a big change in the Android OS by the end of next month. They promise to push out an over air update for customers using Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 or X10 Mini Pro and inform users via text message when the update is available.
Thanks to an update in the support forum, T-Mobile UK revealed that it has a scheduled release “by the end of November.” This is a promise that their customers will receive upgrades from their Android 1.6 OS to Android 2.1. That’s a great start, but what about the newest Android 2.2 OS? Shouldn’t T-Mobile UK customers be up-to-date with the rest of the Android world? It’s hard to imagine that Sony Ericsson wants to leave their customers in the lurch with Android 2.1, especially if the rumored Android 2.5 or 3.0 (Gingerbread) comes out next week. Then again, as we’ve seen before Sony Ericsson isn’t the only one delaying Android OS updates. What is is with the UK delaying Android updates anyway? If you want to take a look on the bright side of things, at least their customers will have new features with better app compatibility (until a newer Android OS update comes around).
