Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Gets Android 2.1 Eclair

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 owners: don’t forget to put a smile on this morning when you get dressed because the sweetest Eclair of last year is headed your way. Sony Ericsson today announced the release of the update to Android 2.1 Eclair to all Xperia X10 owners on AT&T’s network.

The jump from Android 1.6 Donut to 2.1 Eclair will bring with it some photographic perks like 720p HD video recording capabilities (1280 x 720 pixels), continuous auto-focus in still and video capture, and face detection during video capture. Users will also get multi-touch support and two extra homescreens, bringing the X10 homescreen total to five. Of course, all the other goodies that come with Android 2.1 Eclair will hit the X10, too.

You’ll have to connect the phone to a PC for installation, but Sony Ericsson has assembled a little step-by-step guide for anyone who needs a some extra help.
