    i think its the battery update its supposed to last twice as long. but dont quote me on that im just saying that cause i did a search and thats what sony has claimed will be their next update for. but just too let everyone know only way youll be able to get this update is if your debranded. if your not you gotta wait for your carrier to release the update.if they release it.

    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...

    Bart says: June 22, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    “O2 Twitter Germany: The Update will published today!”

    Who knows?

    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 now its been rooted I think I might hold off on the system update and wait for the top lads on XDA to release their goodies now!

    Link to thread on XDA Root happened! - xda-developers

    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.
