Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 was launched last year with Android OS 1.6 (Donut). It had come a long way since then. The smartphone now not only supports Eclair but also Gingerbread.

Finally, the much awaited Android 2.3 Gingerbread update is all set to be rolled out for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. However, the company could not reveal an exact date of the roll out.

It is being reported that the X10 users cannot get the Gingerbread update over-the-air (OTA). As such to install the update, users need to connect their handsets to a PC and then run Sony Ericsson’s PC Companion software.

Bundled with the Gingerbread update are tighter Facebook integration, a Wi-Fi hotspot as well as tethering feature. The Backup and Restore app as well as Mediascape will be removed from the handset by this update. Users will also be able to enjoy horizontal app tray along with media widgets.

It offers some great features combined with matching specifications. Storage capabilities include a 384MB RAM and 1 GB onboard storage. The 4 inch OLED capacitive screen was the highest screen resolution (480×854 pixels) offered by any smartphone at the time of launch.

Following the trend, it can support 32GB microSD cards, Wi-Fi, GPS, FM radio and DLNA. Good camera resolution of 8 megapixel with LED flash and AF should suffice.
