It’s that time again, folks: it’s time for Good News, Bad News! Bad News: If you own a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 handset, you’ve been waiting a pretty friggin’ long time for an update. But you already knew that, so I suppose it’s not really bad news. Hell, it’s probably not even technically news. Good news: The wait is, at long last, over. Android 2.1 will start… → Read More
After five months of floating around in the UK, the Android-powered Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 will finally be hitting US shores in just two days. We had the opportunity to meet up with some of the folks from Sony Ericsson to nab a unit fresh off the production line early this morning.

More Android handsets are on the way from Sony Ericsson as the handset manufacturer just announced smaller versions of the Xperia X10: the X10 mini and X10 mini pro. Clever names, right?
