    Oh the joys!!!

    at least there saying that the phone is capable of MT...but not by them (prob dont know how to tbh)!!

    In all honesty....do sony REALLY KNOW WHAT THERE DOING??

    1st it can do MT, then it cant, then it can, then it dont have MT capabilities now there saying it CAN do MT...but not by them???

    no plans for FROYO because of hardware/ software compatibility...Did they not say that about MT??

    Another nail in the coffin....not that i have much room for any!

    They are starting to roll out the update at the end of this month, hoping to have all handsets upgraded by the end of Q4

    just came across this, interesting

    Rikard Skogberg from the SE Product Blog has once again been active in the comment section giving little snippets of information that we have consolidated below. There are no major surprises: he confirms that the DLNA update will now come in the next update (following Android 2.1). He also says that the Android 2.1 update will have to be done at the PC in full rather than OTA (although OTA notifications will still be there). He also confirms the Android 2.1 release date for late October as well as confirming no multitouch, no equaliser and no Arabic fonts. Interestingly he says that Sony Ericsson has learned their lesson and will tinker with the core Android code much less next time round and will instead build layers on top that should make it easier to deliver timely OS upgrades.

    You read it wrong, it does not say We are looking to start releasing the upgrade by the end of Q4. He would have stated it that way otherwise

    and he dont say that all handsets will be completed by the end of Q4....just that they will release it at the end of Q4 year - i take that as a starting point - you take it how ever u feel

    not getting into an argument here.....its not worth it

    I totally agree with you! There are so many mis-spelt & incorrect words in there its unbelievable.

    If this was "genuine SE staff", I'd think they wouldnt let a reply to a blog go out like this!

    Im thinking & hoping that its a fake reply!

    "ALSO IF THE UPDATE HAS BEEN PUSHED BACK AGAIN, THEY WOULD MAKE A NEW POST, NOT ADD IT TO A EXISTING ONE!"

    I'm not arguing with you, and tbh none of us know what to believe anymore and we never know whether to take things seriously or not. It's a joke

    Guys and gals relax...i can confirm 100% that is a fake post. Every single time Rikard posts his name will ALWAYS be green....not black.
    I've also been watching his post counter....which still remains at 753....no need to panic :)

    It's hard to believe that some people can be so sad to make a fake post like that

    True, there are so many idiots out there, but what is so fun about pretending to be Rikard Skogberg, its more pathetic than funny

    Its pathetic to us.....but to him its funny because he is an idiot....he is cleary trying to stir the pot and start a rumor for engadget or someone else to pick up on and piss everyone off. Rikard will probably clear this up Monday...I don't even believe he posts in that blog anymore because of the abuse and vulgar language and I don't blame him. All his posts are in his newest blogs now. I've been following him closely....does that make me a stalker? Lol
