Sony Ericsson has posted Android 2.3 Gingerbread for last year's Xperia X10 smartphone.

Clarification regarding Gingerbread upgrade for Xperia X10
As some of you have seen we have communicated on www.sonyericsson.com that the Gingerbread software update for Xperia X10 is available. Unfortunately that information was a bit too premature. The launch is imminent and timing according to plan but we just need some more days before we can push the button. Please stay tuned here on the product blog where we will notify you as soon as the first software kits start to roll out.
Also, please note that there is a lot of false commenting and posts impersonating Rikard Skogberg. Please respect the guidelines so that we can continue to have an open spirit and direct dialogue on this forum.
Any new information regarding Sony Ericsson software updates will always be communicated as a blog post, not in the comments field.
We will shortly introduce to you the two new bloggers that will carry Rikard’s torch during his absence.

The X10 is still a decently specc'd phone - 1ghz, 384mb ram, 4" screen (854*480) - but really: the fact that it's taken over six months for Sony to bring out a firmware upgrade for their flagship phone model is nothing short of appalling.
Similar happened with the X10 mini - after several months of waiting for the upgrade from 1.6 to 2.1, I sold the phone and switched over to the LG Optimus, after which I wound up with a HTC Desire HD. The odds of my going back to a SE phone are fairly minimal...
Seems that Vodafone have been informed of the impending 2.3 update by their own customers via the forum:
Don't hold much hope of seeing this released by VF before the Olympics closing ceremony.
Pity though, 2.1 was a incredible improvement in every way.
