Sony Ericsson XPERIA X8 (Shakira) to see 2.1 by 2011

After last week’s announcement by Sony Ericsson that 2.1 was coming to their XPERIA X10, X10 Mini, and X10 Mini Pro by the end of November, a lot of X8 owners were left feeling a bit left out. But today, Sony Ericsson announced that the device will see Eclair by the end of the year. Of course, the other side of this good news is that it’s the last major Android update any of the aforementioned gadgets will be seeing. 2.1 for life? Yeah, but that’s more of a murmur than a cheer.

We’ve heard so many reports on updates for SE’s long outdated batch of Androids that turned out to fall through that it’s hard to believe these updates are actually occurring. These two announcements came straight from the OEM, all official like, so there is hope.
