Owners of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, X10 Mini, and X10 Mini Pro, will be sad to hear that they will not be getting the Android 2.1 update yet.

Patrick Goss of Techradar is reporting that Sony have delayed the update which was first expected in September. Sony Ericsson’s Rikard Skogberg said that “The revised plan is to start the roll-out from end of October and onwards,” and added “We are of course not happy about the change of launch timing but we have had to spend some additional time on the software to really make sure we roll-out with the right quality and user experience.”

He went on to say “When it comes to what to expect from the updated software all three X10 models will be updated to Android 2.1 and the Xperia X10 will also get HD video recording with continuous autofocus among many other things.”

The news will surely disappoint owners of the devices who will be seeing people with other handsets getting Android 2.2 updates, while they are still waiting for Eclair.
