Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Getting Multi-Touch Update – Video Within

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 is getting its pinch and zoom function afterall. Remember the delay and also the update without the usual multi-touch? Now, SE is officially rolling out the update.

There are two highlights on the update:

  • Addition of some bi-directional languages (Arabic, Farsi, Thai and Hebrew) – All products.
  • Pinch/zoom touch for mobile Internet and Google Maps. – Only Xperia  X10.

So, as you can see above, Xperia X8 will NOT get the multi-touch function.

And there are some more additional features to the update based on Sony Ericsson product blog.

Besides the highlights above I have been trying out the X10 with this update for a while and seen some other nice improvements, some of these can be market and operator dependant though:

  • Moxier in an updated version (2.7.13) that includes a great overview widget for e-mail, calendar and tasks.
  • Moxier e-mail shown in Timescape.
  • Possibilities of trimming videos in the phone.
  • Videos are transcoded to fit into MMS-messages even if they were recorded in high quality.
  • Minor changes to Mediascape with access to “Now Playing” in the top right corner.

Finally, SE also activated ANT+ on the chipset. ANT+ is a standard for short-range communication with things like heart rate monitors etc.

The update will roll out from now but not sure when it will hit Singapore.
