Despite the fact that Gingerbread is set to be released in the next few weeks, some of us are still waiting for an update to a version of Android two decimal places behind - Android 2.1, aka Éclair. Such is life for owners of AT&T's Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 who, after jealously watching as Scandinavian X10 owners received the update on Halloween night, are being told that 2.1 has been delayed yet again for their devices. This time, SE is blaming "especially rigorous" testing as the cause of the procrastination, stating that there are "technical requirements that must be met" in the US that are apparently not an issue in other countries. Of course, the company's keeping the details very hush-hush, but if I had to guess, that "especially rigorous" testing exclusive to the US probably has something to do with AT&T, who has yet to issue a Froyo upgrade for any of its handsets. Let's just hope that Sony will be a bit more expeditious with updates on the rumored PlayStation Phone.
