    While we're all waiting for the Galaxy Nexus to arrive and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to be released to the AOSP, the is another way that we can get ICS on our phones: ports from the ICS SDK. In most cases the result is closer to something you'd expect from "Dr. Frankenstein" than a "plastic surgeon" in terms of elegance and full-functionality, but being able to run ICS on your own phone before it's available to anyone else can be too hard to pass up! Since the SDK was released, here are some of the more noteworthy phones that have gotten the new OS ported to them: Sony Xperia X10 ...

    This past summer, Sony Ericsson brought owners of the Xperia X10 into the present day by finally releasing a Gingerbread update for the phone, skipping Froyo altogether as it upgraded the X10 from Eclair. If you thought that action meant SE was interested in continuing to breathe some new life into the aging phone, think again, because it looks like that update will be the last the X10 may ever see. An X10 fan sent a tweet to Sony Ericsson's UK branch, where he wondered if there were any plans to get Android 2.3.4 on the X10; the late July update was for Android 2.3.3. Sony Ericsson ...

    A couple days ago, after posting information on its website indicating that the long-awaited Gingerbread upgrade that would bump Xperia X10 smartphones right past Froyo from Eclair, Sony Ericsson quickly backpedaled and announced that we'd still have to wait a little longer for the code. The company still hasn't re-posted the Gingerbread upgrade information, but reports are coming in that the update is nevertheless going out, keeping SE on its earlier-reported schedule. On Monday, Sony Ericsson posted on Facebook that the plan was to start getting the update out sometime this week. It ...

    It's hard to blame Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 owners for being excited about the update that will bring their smartphones to Gingerbread; after all, going all the way from Eclair, skipping straight over Froyo, is a pretty big step. Well, it looks like you're not the only ones who are excited about the release, as Sony Ericsson itself seems to have gotten a bit wrapped-up in X10 Gingerbread enthusiasm. Yesterday the company added Gingerbread info to its update page for the X10, making it appear to be all ready for download and installation to carrier-unbranded X10s. Now SE has had to ...

    Yesterday Sony Ericsson posted on Facebook about the long-awaited Gingerbread update for the Xperia X10. The news was promising – that the code could arrive as soon as this week, basically dependent on carriers OKing it. While you're still stuck waiting for that approval if you're running a carrier-branded X10, the rest of you X10 owners can now make the leap from Eclair to Gingerbread, thanks to Sony Ericsson releasing the update for un-branded X10s. The myriad changes and features of Gingerbread and Froyo combined aren't all Sony Ericsson has in store for users, also including ...

    We got our last update from Sony Ericsson on the fate of the Xperia X10's Gingerbread update about a month ago. The company provided some new details about what to expect, and mentioned that we could expect to see it arrive during the first week of August. Now it looks like SE might just beat its own August deadline, with a recent Facebook update saying that it could arrive sometime before the end of the week. The company's Facebook representative posted that he's been told the update's expected to go out during the 30th week of the year – this week. That's assuming that carriers give the ...

    Just a little bit more than a week ago Sony Ericsson released the Panorama Beta application for the Xperia X10 smartphone that would allow users to easily capture panoramic images using their Sony Ericsson-made device. If you have a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 smartphone -- advertised to only work with this model -- here's how the panoramic images you will capture will look. As with any smartphone camera, pictures taken in bright conditions come out best but the application does a decent job at stitching subsequent pictures together without an ugly noticeable overlap. Head over to the source ...

    Earlier today, we got a look at a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 that appeared to be running Gingerbread. Was this a custom hack job, or a sign that the official update may soon be upon us? Luckily for X10 owners, it seems likely that the latter may be the case, with the reveal of some updated User Agent Profiles for X10 models showing the phones as running Android 2.3. The UAProfs for both the X10i and the X10a now list Gingerbread as their operating systems. Since this data is maintained by Sony Ericsson, there's little reason to doubt it. The company earlier announced, back in March, that it ...

Hopefully the manufacturer will go through with the updating process and from the build running on the device filmed there looks to be a new Kernel -- and hopefully ...

    Sony Ericsson has released a Panorama application for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 that is available to download freely from the Android Market but is indended to work solely on X10 smartphones, and works in firmware version 2.1. Panorama Beta will allow you to easily capture panoramic pictures: "select a direction, press the capture button and then pan the camera to shoot your panoramic photo." Easy as that! Since this is a Beta application it means that it's still under development so you might run into bugs now and then but since you already know that head over to the source link and ...
