Unhappy calm down

Guys, as much as I hate to say, don't get too excited.

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!
