Sony Xperia X10 gets ‘Pinch-to-Zoom’ Software update: X8 & X10 also get bug fixes but not the Android 2.2 (Froyo) Update

February 1, 2011, By Shawn Wagnon

It seems really something of a pain at this point for Sony Xperia users who wanted a Froyo update that is now set to never happen. Sony had confirmed earlier that users of both the Xperia X10 and X8 will not be getting any Froyo updates and should not be expecting any. What Xperia X10 and X8 users did manage to get is a software update and a few bugs fixed.

Along with the latest software update came a feature that should interest many of the Xperia X10 users. Pinch-to-Zoom is now a possibility on the X10 and support for Arabic, Farsi, Thai and Hebrew. Surely not something users across the US or Europe are too pleased about, but we suppose it will help a few in Middle East and South East Asia.

There have also been some changes made to the Timescape UI on both the X8 and the X10 and a few bugs that previously might have caused you slight glitches have been fixed. So, have you tried the new pinch-to-zoom on your Xperia X10? Received your update? Still disappointed about the lack of Froyo on the X10?
