Xperia X10 mini pro is my first android phone, i love this small device but this gadget also only have Android 2.1 (Eclair) an outdated android version. I think X10 mini pro users will get gingerbread update after reading news that X10 getting Gingerbread update, but after reading thoroughly the update is only for Xperia X10, not for mini or mini pro. Sure I’m little disappointed with it.
Why X10 mini, mini pro and X8 can’t get official gingerbread update
Sony Ericsson Engineer also announced that Xperia X10 mini, mini pro and X8 do not have any promises to update from last update Android 2.1 (Eclair version). They have reason why Xperia X10 mini, mini pro and also X8 aren’t ready for Gingerbread update, as my expectation they said that the device have less RAM memory when compared with Xperia X10, that smartphones only have 128MB internal storage. Due to this, it’s impossible to get official gingerbread update, but for enthusiastic android users you can rooted your mini and then flash it with modified ROM, you can use modified Cyanogen Gingerbread CM7 based on MiniCM for MiniPro, otherwise you can choose another release on xda-developers. Just don’t wait official update for your mini, the update can not be expected.
