For XperiaTM X10 mini, mini pro and X8 there are as communicated earlier no plans to update beyond the current Éclair version. There are two mains reasons for this: The XperiaTM X10 mini, X10 mini pro and X8 all have less RAM memory than XperiaTM X10. By this we can’t guarantee a good user experience by upgrading beyond Android 2.1. The upgrade of XperiaTM X10 also was made possible due to that we had a code base that mostly could be reused. For the mini’s, who have a different user interface, this possibility did not exist.

Max RAM i got with gingerbread is 90 MB and with froyo 111 MB,they skiped froyo,all their devices will run gingerbread so they dont want three devices run froyo,very simple.

Hey guys,

I just checked my girlfriend's X8 has this latest software update available (start of July 2011). I think it's now the 3rd update or so, the first being Android 2.1, the second something with Nike-Chip and the ability to cut videos and an office suite.

But somehow I can't find details on what this current 3rd update does (though it's a pretty popular phone?)

Has anybody checked it out already? SE's Backup-And-Restore-App always screws up the contacts and calendar entries, so I would like to know if it's worth the pain.

Edit: Oh and it's a branding-and-simlock-free X8 from Amazon ;)

SE is full of bull****! They won't update our devices to Android 2.2 because they don't want! I'm using the Froyobread rom and i have 94MB of ram free. If they don't know how to work on their own phones, simply deliver the development to jerpelea, racht, doixanh or anyone able enough!
