Sony Ericsson just rolled out its firmware update for Xperia X10, but it's not the Gingerbread that everybody was waiting for.

Sony Ericsson just rolled out another firmware update for its Xperia X10, bringing in a number of major changes in the handset. However, it is not the Gingerbread release that everybody was waiting for.

It strengthens the signal and in-call sound quality with its new baseband, and it also makes switching from 2G to 3G network even faster.

The update also enables voice integration to almost anywhere it is necessary.

With Sony Ericsson’s PlayStation Phone – the Sony Xperia Play – brewing around the corner (or that’s what we would love to believe), Google just turned God-mode as it abruptly pulls the plug on the popular PSOne emulator for the Android OS, the PSX4Droid. The app has been removed from the Android Market without giving any prior notification to its developer, “zodttd.”
