    Here's the direct link to SE's announcement:

    Sony Ericsson Xperia™ X10 to get UXP upgrade in Q4 2010

    And this is the more immediately important quote:

    We all knew we'd have to await a while for an OS update, as even the best rumors were saying "September". At least a firmware update that fixes known performance issues like battery life, call volume (not something I've experienced) and other niggling issues like that will be here soon, and hopefully quiet some of the more major concerns with this phone.

    Overall I'm quite pleased with my X10, but I really can't understand why SE is going to Eclair (2.1) rather than FroYo (2.2) with the OS update? The "Q4" timeframe they give means they have at minimum 4 months left to work on updating UX to the newer OS (an likely longer when the work they've already done is taken into account), and 7 months is a more likely estimate (quarter-based timelines almost always seem to mean the end of the designated quarter).

    Something to look forward too indeed.

    One of my hopes is that SE integrate an equalizer into the media player at some point (as they did with the Satio via an update) to enhance an already great sound :p

    Really looking forward to this update in Q4 and also the battery issue that will be resolved (Hopefully) via the firmware update very soon.

    Sony Ericsson....you guys rock.
