Sony Ericsson updates Xperia X10 with pinch to zoom

It took a while before Sony Ericsson released its Android 2.1 update for its Xperia X10. Even after the update, it still lacks multi-touch and pinch to zoom. Several months ago, Sony Ericsson had revealed that they are working hard in bringing such features to their existing Android line up and now the day is finally here.

According to Sony Ericsson’s Product Blog, a new update is coming to Xperia X10 and Xperia X8 line up. The X10 will be getting its pinch to zoom feature however this is only applicable to Mobile Internet and Google Maps only. There are other improvements for this update which includes an updated Moxier, ability to trim videos on the go, ability to compress high quality videos for MMS delivery and some minor change for Mediascape access.

The X8 however now has ANT+ enabled which is some form of short range communication. Both X8 and X10 also received additional bi-directional languages such as Arabic, Farsi, Thai and Hebrew.

The updates can be updated via PC companion or download over-the-air (OTA). More information on their blog
