Sony Ericsson has been lagging behind with Android versions as it continues to run on Android 1.6. This might come as a pleasant update as Sony Ericsson UK had tweeted that Android 2.1 upgrade is due to be released by end of September.
Sure Android 2.1 is nothing to shout about considering most devices are shifting to Android 2.2 Froyo as we speak. However having Android 2.1 gives Sony Ericsson Xperias more access to apps that runs on Android 2.0 and above. We have no idea whether this will be pushed out to all Xperias worldwide or exclusively to UK handsets first.
Well, it is better late than never.
