Default Rikard: rolling out next Update for the Xperia x8

There's a new post by Rikard on the blog.

http://blogs.sonyericsson.com/produc...-and-x8-family

All that is mentioned for the x8 is:
"the mini products and the Xperia X8 we
also have enabled the ANT+ support in the
chipset. "

and thats it.

No dual touch, new Timescape, no changes to 4 corner UI, so called uxp update is a sham.

SE is crazy. No 2.2, ok we cried but we stayed mum. But going back on a promise of providing a decent update is pretty sad.

How can they not post DT for X8. I dont care about the stupid timescape, or the stupid launcher. All I want is DT (and most of the users here).

i used US firmware, and check with SEUS and PC com, there's no update available.
Anyone has new update? and can you share your SI number? hope that new update is not china firmware, cause it makes my phone slower than US firmware

In case we will receive this update, am i right assuming it will delete anything on the phone?

So we have to reinstall all our apps, adjust settings again and so on?

Come on guys, SE never promised dualtouch for the X8! We don't even know if it's possible. I think we have no right to cry about this, as we bought our phone knowing there would be no multitouch.

DONATE TO ME
Dammit guys! Why are you complaining? They'll enable ANT+!!! Don't you know how useful is it? It'll save many lives, and since we all have ANT+ monitoring devices, DT should be our least concern...
xD, yeah right... I really really don't see any purpose of ANT+, can't they at least give us DT?
All I can say right now is: SE, you haven't said a word about 2.2 on Xperia, while developers got 2.3 working on X10 and racht is in progress of making it work on our X8-s (I hope)...

The X8 update will start rolling out one week after the x10, so arnd 2-3 days more and we can expect it to begin, not that it'll add much but I want to see if they have made any improvements to the UI.

One "improvement" they surelly done is patch up the root exploit, so I would say not to update...
