It's been a long, tough, road, but customers of Sony Ericsson's beleaguered X10
have some reason to celebrate this week as the Japanese version offered on NTT DoCoMo
becomes the first to get an official multitouch software upgrade. Mind you, it's not a full, perfect multitouch implementation: pinch-to-zoom is actually the only gesture supported, which means rotation (in Maps, for example) won't work, and it's also not guaranteed to work in all multitouch-capable third-party apps. Furthermore, Sony Ericsson isn't yet talking about when the update will be available for other markets -- and considering the phased Android 2.1 rollout
, some markets could be in for a bit of a wait.
