Rumor: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 going Froyo

by: James TromansMarch 10, 2010

Xperia X10

For those based in North America, the wait for the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 must seem like a lifetime. The device is a nice piece of kit, don’t get us wrong, and the huge screen certainly is a plus point. However, with the Motorola Droid running Android 2.x+ and other phones set for release soon with similar software versions, the X10 seems a little, well, dated.

At MWC there was plenty to see in the Xperia range, and CNET Asia report that these devices should look forward to an upgrade of Android. We all assumed that this upgrade would be to Android 2.0 but there is now talk that this would be just the icing on the cake, so to [...]

Flan is out, next iteration of Android to be called Froyo

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 17, 2010

According to an Engadget exclusive interview with Erick Tseng, Senior Product Manager for Android, the next iteration of Android will be codenamed Froyo.  It will not be called Flan, as we reported back in July, and no release window or other details have been said regarding the next iteration.  Froyo, short for frozen yogurt, fits in line with Google’s alphabetical dessert loving scheme and the web is already abuzz with the letter “G”.  Ginger, gelatin, gelato, and ganache come to mind but since Google threw us a curve ball here, I would say that anything is possible.  Please note that many have been referring to 2.1 as Flan, including us, which is an error as 2.1 [...]
