We love it when Android phones get updated to Froyo, and it's a nuisance when they don't. But Nick over at Gizmodo reports that there's no prospect of any action when it comes to Sony's current Xperia models.
As Nick details, Sony argues that its own manufacturer enhancements and a relatively recent shift to 2.1 mean that there's no benefits to be had from 2.2. (Hello, apps on the SD card anyone?) I suspect Xperia owners with this dilemma will have already gone down the rooting path, but it's perhaps something to bear in mind if you're thinking of a new phone. Hit Nick's story for all the gory details.
