I’m sure a lot of you were, and possibly still are, annoyed at Sony Ericsson because they won’t be updating your ‘premium’ device beyond the delicious treat that is Android 2.1 “Eclair”. Well it turns out their not updating it because of one application, one I never used the whole time I owned an Xperia X10, TimeScape. TimeScape is an application that Sony Ericsson wet themselves over when they launched the Xperia X10, as it brought together all your social interactions into a good-looking, terrible to use, interface. SE said they had problems ‘uncoupling’ the application that is evidently deeply embedded into the OS, which stops them from ‘porting’ it to Android 2.2.
So they can’t get TimeScape to work on Android 2.2 for the Xperia X10, yet they can mysteriously get it working on Android 2.3 for the Xperia Arc. That makes sense, Sony Ericsson, we’ll believe that..
