One of the few devices still in the dark age is the Xperia. Not very much longer. The Xperia X10 and X10 mini and X10pro all will soon be running Android 2.1.
The first roll out is coming this Sunday, to Nordic countries first, in the evening European time. And then the roll-out will continue throughout the month of November for everyone else.
These updates will give you some features introduced by Android 2.1, and the Xperia X10 will also get HD-video recording in 720p with continuous auto focus.
The key changes for the different products are the following:
HD video recording with continuous auto-focus for high quality videos
New back up and restore application, with extended content back up
5 homescreens for apps, widgets, shortcuts and folders
Social phonebook which automatically syncs contact pictures from Facebook and shows when your friends are online

New backup and restore application with extended content back up
Automatic sync of your contact pictures between Facebook and your phone book

In most markets, your phone will automatically let you know with a notification when the update is ready for your specific software version and then you will be guided to how to perform the update using the PC Companion software. In that process, because of this being a big update, you will also be guided through some steps to be able to backup personal data before the update and then restore it when the update is finished.
