Okay, so a couple of weeks back, we wouldn't have cared if Best Buy was willing to give us
money to carry the Xperia X10
, we still would have steered clear of its flawed UI and outdated software. But Sony Ericsson did a funny thing last Friday by promising
to slap Gingerbread on this 4-inch sucker, which makes its current $1 contract price an eminently more intriguing proposition. We scouted out Best Buy's web outlet and couldn't find the X10 listed at all, so this could very well be a final stock clearance of the handset available on a store-by-store basis. If you're tempted to jump on what's looking like one of
the cheapest Gingerbread devices for a while, you should be aware that the Android 2.3 update won't be dropping until the end of Q2 at the earliest, so there will be a modicum of patience required.
