    Sorry but that is NOT why we are not getting updates to the X10

    and as for jumping the gun, don't talk nonsense

    phone manufacturers, including Apple etc, release new handsets on a quarterly to yearly timescale

    so those of us that have 24 mth contracts, were gonna get left behind at some point regardless

    pure case of mis-information there - even if it was a rant, it was incorrect

    I am an US X10 owner for almost 6 months. I got it knowing it was 1.6 and without much expectation that at&t will soon upgrade it if at all.

    I am out of contract and six months is about my average stint with a device, except for my two Treos, the 750 and the Pro.

    Considering I have not had any inclination yet to go for another device, I would say I made the right decision.

    I had three upgrades after de branding and each one made it better yet.

    Just my 2 cents :)

    With a good 2.1 rom, finally getting dual touch and the right apps, my X10 is pretty awesome. 2.2 would be good for the speed and flash - but this phone is pretty solid when the developers gave us JIT/Dualtouch and a good rom.

    To be honest, after trying 2.1 and 2.2, I prefer 2.1

    I have no idea why lol

  10. I keep flashing back and forth between 2.1 and beta4...I can't make up my damn mind lol.

    Beta4 is nice...but I really miss my video recording...I really wish one day Ill log on XDA and see a thread saying "BOOTLOADER CRACKED" :sigh:

    I think people are going to complain about any device and they're not in the wrong to do so...but if you really look at this phone as it stands...try not to compare with other companies... is it really not living up to your expectations?

    We all bought the phone knowing it may never get dual touch. We all bought it knowing it was being released with an already out-dated OS version that didn't have flash. We all knew it didnt' have a good camera flash.

    But as for the rest I think it comes as advertised. It has a fast processor, big ass screen and lots of memory... meaning it's very customizeable and that's where the developer community stepped in..and MAN have they delivered! The options we have available to us now is simply astounding.

    I'm running X10's Eminence ROM with my own tweaks that i've learned on this forum and I just love the phone. Yes I want flash but i'm waiting for a stable 2.2 before making the move because the phone simply does everything I expect and more as it is. To be honest I loved it with the Rogers 2.1 update until my email notification stopped working... I figured rather than reflash I'd put on Eminence for the black status bar and I'm just thrilled with the results.

    Anyways, there's my rant :)

    I have to say that I am satisfied with the 2.1 as well...
    as mentioned before, 2.1 did the job with its solid updates
    as far as the Xperia ARC's concern.... well, life goes on and we have to move to the next big thing eventually :p
