Sony Ericsson Xperia™ X10 adalah smartphone Android pertama dari Sony Ericsson yang mempunyai spesifikasi paling tinggi di antara smartphone Android lainnya. Kelebihan dari Xperia™ X10 dibandingkan dengan smartphone Android lain di antaranya adalah prosesor SnapDragon berkekuatan 1 GHz dan kamera autofocus dengan resolusi 8.1 megapixel.

Namun demikian, dalam hal versi sistem operasinya, Xperia™X10 termasuk ketinggalan karena masih menggunakan Android versi 1.6 sementara smartphone Android lain sudah banyak yang menggunakan versi 2.1, versi terakhir untuk saat ini.

Demikian pula jika dibandingkan dengan produk Sony Ericsson lain, dalam hal ini Vivaz™ dan Vivaz™ Pro, kemampuan rekam video Xperia™ X10 termasuk ketinggalan karena baru mendukung resolusi WVGA @30fps, sementara 2 produk terakhir dari seri Entertainment Unlimited tersebut sudah bisa menghasilkan rekaman beresolusi HD 720p.

Tapi tidak berarti bahwa Sony Ericsson akan tetap membiarkan hal tersebut di atas karena melalui Product Blog-nya Sony Ericsson telah mengumumkan bahwa Xperia™X10, melalui update firmware, akan di-upgrade ke sistem operasi Android versi 2.1 dan kemampuan rekam videonya akan ditingkatkan menjadi resolusi HD (720p) pada kuartal keempat tahun ini, yaitu sekitar bulan September 2010.

Masih ada penambahan lain yang dijanjikan, yaitu DLNA dan peningkatan kemampuan TimeScape™ dan MediaScape™. Untuk lengkapnya silakan simak berita dari Sony Ericsson Product Blog berikut:

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

Thanks for your patience concerning more information about software upgrades.

UXP (UX platform) is the strategic framework for the core of Sony Ericsson’s portfolio. The Xperia™ X10 family of phones (Xperia™ X10, Xperia™ X10 mini and Xperia™ X10 mini pro) are the first products to deliver this unique user interface layer to the market. UXP builds on top of the Android OS and brings together a rich graphical user interface, unrivalled service plug-ins and content from external partners to deliver unique consumer propositions such as Sony Ericsson’s signature applications Mediascape and Timescape™. Through UXP consumers get the best of two worlds, leveraging Sony Ericsson heritage as a leader in communication entertainment and the benefits that the generic Android OS delivers. With UXP Sony Ericsson gives consumers additional value in comparison to generic Android handsets. Sony Ericsson’s strategy is to continue to enrich the UXP layer through software updates.

Some examples of user benefits that will be included in the UXP upgrade for Xperia™ X10 in Q4 2010 are:

  • Upgrade to Android OS version 2.1
  • HD video recording as per the same execution as Sony Ericsson Vivaz™
  • Wireless home connectivity via DLNA
  • Improvements to signature applications Timescape™ and Mediascape to make them even smarter and richer

The upgrade will be made available to consumers through the update service at http://www.sonyericsson.com

I do appreciate that the timing for the upgrade above might not meet some of your expectations and that you will have further detailed questions. I will take them onboard reading your comments and address questions as soon as it is possible for me to share further details.

I would also like to emphasise that there will be an additional smaller software update, already in the next couple of weeks aiming to enhance the usability and performance of Xperia™ X10. In the next post, I will share more details and precise timings for when this update will be released.

We can also confirm that the Xperia™ X10 mini and Xperia™ X10 mini pro will be upgraded to Android version 2.1, during Q4 2010.

More details with regards to the specific components of the UXP upgrade will be shared over time through official Sony Ericsson channels including this blog.

Kind regards,
Sumit
