Sony Ericsson is the company that has the say in whether or not an update gets made for your device. However, AT&T can still prevent an update coming to your phone if they want to. Yeah, it sucks.

Check out this link to see if your handset is supposed to have already been updated to Android 2.1. The X10 phones start further down. The numbers are "“SI-numbers” – that number can be found on the label of the back of your phone."

If your phone's SI number is not listed, then the update may still be coming for your phone.

If your phone's SI number is there, but you are still on Android 1.6, do a restart, have your phone check for updates, and if you still can't get it to update, then let me know.

It blows. Carriers can keep their greasy corporate mitts off our phones. As far as S/E is concerned, they updated the Xperia series long ago, but in effect it's them that suffers the PR woes because carriers drag their feet.

BTW: You can root your X10 (fairly straightforward) then get access to e.g. Generic Nordic or whatever. No worries, you can still run or install any locale you like. 2.1 on Xperia is nice, but I already look forward to the Arc. :)
