Wouldn't it be great if they released the 2.1 update as a suprice O well at least my battery will last longer.

Yeah, I'm more concerned about the speaker volume than the battery issue.

With you on this one, love the handset (even more now that I have the SWYPE keyboard) but the earpiece volume is dire, a real struggle to hear when outside.
These days there always seems to be a basic element missing from high-end devices, don't get me wrong I'm not a moaner for the sake of it but low volume, no data/file transfer over bluetooth, even my old N97 did these things (although phone reception was crap as the antenna was located under your hand).
Come on Ericsson, let's get it sorted.

I also had an N97 before i upgraded to this phone, i really enjoyed using the keyboard and the big 32GB memory, the sad thing was about the phone was that the phone was just so slow.

Another downside to this phone is that the mouthpiece is in a shocking position...

I had an N97 too and althought I like the technology of the X10 I miss terribly being able to hear people that I am trying to talk to on the phone! Quite how this got through the sound quality testing at SE I will never know!
If they don't release a volume fix then I am going to kick up an almighty fuss - it's almost not fit for purpose as it currently stands...

Taken from one of the Sony Ericsson blogs:

Bart says: June 22, 2010 at 7:48 pm
From xda :
“O2 Twitter Germany: The Update will published today!”

Who knows?

I'm in the UK and on the 3 network, am I holding my breath for this?

No...

Am I holding my phone up in the air and thinking shall I sell you and buy a HTC Desire?

Yes...

The phone has also been rooted, so if you are wanting to go down the rooting path, it is suggested that you don't update.

Still thinking of selling the X10 for a desire as the battery last so much longer and will always be more up to date. Shame though as I do like the x10 just a shame that it seems it will all ways be behind all other phones.

well it may take time for them to cook up a rom and so forth and it should apparently still work after the update but even if it doesnt, if you have a debranded phone you can always downgrade! so you can have the best of both worlds ;-)

Root will allow you to install, delete anything on the phone. Even update the x10i to foro2.2 if you have the zen skills needed to do so.
Root means freedom to set the cell phone up to look and feel the way you want it to. Delete things like mediascape or Playnow or even any of the Moxier apps if you do not wish it on your phone any more.

Yes it could be compared to the jail break of an iPhone/iPod. This too allowed you access to the base OS and root tools, giving full control over the whole system.

Root is not yet ready for mear mortals like us. If you travel to XPERIA X10 Android Development They will keep us all in the loop as this develops. Take the time now to get to know your phone, see if in fact the pains of a rooting will be worth it for you.

I think you've been misinformed. Battery life on the Desire isn't great. My g/f's X10 always seems to last longer than my Desire, and a quick look at the technical specs of both phones says that the advantage in battery life goes to the X10

Not misinformed at all my friend, I'm comparing my X10 to my mates Desire. Both fully charged and with just sitting there on idle as we are on the beach for 5 hours and my battery will go down by up to a quater and his will still be showing a full battery? That's with all data turned off and the phone untouched on standby.

So my findings are completely different to yours so depending on what info you have and what you can compare it to the grass could be greener

Oh and my girlfriend has the Samsung Galaxy Portal that can go 48 hours between charges but that only has a 750mghz processor so that might explain that.

Odd, all the technical specs show that the X10 should be better. I'm also amazed that his Desire shows a full battery after 5 hours on standby. I've got pretty good battery efficiency and mine would be down to about 90% after 5 hours on standby

It's all voodoo dolls and black magic this phone battery stuff

It certainly is!

We went up to Sheffield the other week and the GF spent the whole time surfing the net on her Samsung whilst I drove and my phone had used more battery than hers and mine was on stand by almost all day apart from a couple of emails and then some X10 owners are claiming over 24 hours of battery with moderate use!

But I know I'm a heavy phone user and dont expect amazing results from a smart phone, I do miss my old Sagem phone with heavy use it could last 1 week on a full charge but then again it was a bit low on its specs lol.
