Motorola Droid X

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10  (Source: Mobilephone.co.in)
Updates, updates, updates, and never at the same time

Earlier this week, analysts announced that Android OS is now the smartphone market leader, despite critics charges that the ubiquitous operating system is too fragmented for consumers to stick with it. This fragmentation is evident in today's Android news.

First, the Moto Droid X, Verizon's 4.3" answer to Sprint's HTC EVO 4G, is slated to receive Android 2.2 "Froyo" in September, according to a rep on a Motorola support forum:

Some Droid X users are experiencing an issue using Exchange 2003 email. Though the email is arriving on the Droid X, no notifications are appearing. A fix for this will be included in the upgrade to Android 2.2 scheduled for deployment by early September.

The X had previously received a minor upgrade fixing some early bugs shortly after it launched last month, at the same time that the Froyo timeline for the HTC Incredible was announced. As of press time, 2.2 for the Incredible is only available as a leak, available here, with an official OTA update rumored to be coming very soon.

And while we're on the topic of leaked ROMs, the EVO 4G has had its share before it received the official OTA update earlier this week. Engadget reported that early adopters who updated to the first Froyo build (.3) discovered on HTC's servers had installed a non-final build. But a user on XDA Developers has posted the updated .6 RUU, which should solve any problems. Please note, however, that this update will wipe all user data from your phone – so if you want a non-destructive update, you may want to wait for HTC's official fix.

Finally, it is reported that AT&T will be launching the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 sometime between now and the middle of September. While this handset was worth drooling over when it was announced last year, the Android landscape has evolved so much so that there is little on this device that demands attention -- especially when you consider that it will most likely launch with Android 1.6.
