Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 just got Gingerbread

Aside from the news that the HTC Desire is already rolling out Gingerbread via OTA yesterday (can’t find my Desire so can’t verify), Sony Ericsson also rolled out Android 2.3 to the Xperia X10 last night.

They actually made a premature announcement last week but pulled back. To get the update, just plug your Xperia X10 to a PC with SE PC Companion installed and running (and follow the steps).

Android 2.3.3. Gingerbread added a few more tweaks to Xperia X10, making it more responsive. The UI has also improved, more snappy and has pretty nice transition effects. Since they skipped Android 2.2., this is the first time WiFi and USB tethering will be available to the X10.
