Everyone is desperately waiting for Android 2.1, Eclair firmware update on Xperia X10. It is expected to be rolling out by Last week of September as Sony Ericsson Officially Said. So, if there are no delays, a notification might Pop Up in your Xperia X10 stating that a new Software Update is available for Xperia X10. There are a lot of features that Android 2.1, Eclair natively supports which would make things simpler for all Xperia X10 owners. For example,
– Exchange Support
– Live Wallpapers
– 5 Home Screens
– Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR
– Multiple Account Inbox
– SMS Search
– Social Network Integration, etc.
Plus some Cool App and games for Android that has a minimum requirement of Android 2.0 + or Android 2.1 + like Official Twitter App, Launcher Pro Plus and games like Fruit Ninja.
But there are also some BackPorts from Android 2.2, which have been successfully ported to Android 2.1 like Google Voice Actions with Voice Search! If you remember when Google Announced Voice Actions, the only disappointing thing about it was the Android 2.2, Froyo only Compatibility. But soon Open Source Projects like Google Voice for Android 2.1, created a similar app on the source code of Voice Actions by Google which was almost 100% compatible with Android 2.1 , Eclair Phones. 🙂
I mean how cool is to speak up your mails or just call out your contacts to call them or better speak up your query to search Google?
Now you don’t have to wait to experience Google Voice in your Xperia X10-until Sony Ericsson Launches the Android 2.1, Eclair Update for it! There is an Working version of Google Voice Search for Xperia X10. Although, it doesn’t put all the features of Voice Actions in Xperia X10, it would please you as it works flawless on Xperia X10 and recognizes almost all the words. 🙂
Speak any of these commands to perform a Voice Action on your phone:
– send text to [contact] [message]
– listen to [artist/song/album]
– call [business]
– call [contact]
– send email to [contact] [message]
– go to [website]
– note to self [note]
– navigate to [location/business name]
– directions to [location/business name]
– map of [location]
And of course, you can still conduct a Google search using your voice.
