Sony Ericsson just unveiled in its Product Launch Blog, that the recently launched Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, Sony Ericsson's first Android smartphone which currently ships with Android 1.6 (only), and the upcoming Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 mini pro will receive a so called UXP upgrade later this year. UXP (UX platform) Sony Ericsson's core strategic framework and the Xperia X10 family of phones are the first products to deliver this unique user interface to the market. UXP builds on top of the Android OS and brings together a rich graphical user interface, service plug-ins and content from external partners to deliver unique consumer propositions such as Sony Ericsson's signature applications Mediascape and Timescape.

With UXP, Sony Ericsson gives consumers additional value in comparison to generic Android handsets and Sony Ericsson said that its strategy is to continue to enrich the UXP layer through software updates.

Some examples of what the UXP upgrade for Xperia X10 will feature are:

  • Upgrade to Android OS version 2.1
  • HD video recording as per the same execution as Sony Ericsson Vivaz
  • Wireless home connectivity via DLNA
  • Improvements to signature applications Timescape and Mediascape to make them even smarter and richer

The upgrade will be made available to consumers through the update service at

As Sony Ericsson explains, it expects that the timing for the upgrade above might not meet some of its customer expectations. However, there will be an additional smaller software update available in the next couple of weeks aiming to enhance the usability and performance of Xperia X10.

All together the upcoming UXP is worthwhile, however it should mentioned that at time of its availability, it's most likely that Google has already released Android 2.2 aka Froyo.

Cheers ~ Arne
