28 November, 2010

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 uses pretty much the same software package as the XPERIA X10 and X10 mini, so when they get updated, the update for X8 is close behind (and bringing the same improvements).

Here’s a reminder of what those extras are:

  • Improved Bluetooth functionality with support for sending and receiving pictures, contacts and more
  • New back up and restore application, with extended content back up
  • Automatic synchronization of your contact pictures between Facebook and your phone book
  • Improved ways of handling pictures, audio, text and numbers in your messages
  • Improved web browser

The update is happening gradually - to see if the update for your Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 is out, check it SI-number (found on the back of the phone) and look it up in the list on the Sony Ericsson Product Blog page.
