The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 will finally get its OS upgrade from Android 1.6 to Android 2.1 sometime next month. In the meanwhile, Sony Ericsson is posting numerous videos of the phone running Éclair. You can check out all three below...

[RELATED_ARTICLE]In essence, the Xperia X10 will benefit from the Android 2.1 update in more ways than just differences in the interface, as Sony Ericsson’s firmware update will also unlock 720p HD video recording with continuous autofocus for the 8.1MP camera, amongst other things. Sony Ericsson is also promising the following new features: five homescreens instead of three, live wallpapers, improved lockscreen, enhanced keyboard, and reworked Timescape, apart from a backup and restore application.

So, check out the videos below, and let us know what you feel about all of the upgrade…We know it is long due, but is Sony Ericsson just being stupid by not making a Froyo update directly? Does the upgrade make the phone sufficiently attractive to buy, with all the other modern competition in the market?
