    If I were SE, I wouldn’t bother doing a 2.1 update now, it’s already outdated and the lack of flash support is purely a nail in the x10’s coffin. Everyone who owns an x10 (unfortunately like me) have been waiting for the update for too long already. It was a shock that flash wasn’t included, but 2.1 brings other features to the table. Now it’s delayed again, I don’t see the point in me keeping the x10. It’ll be on ebay on the 11th October, when the new HTC Desire HD comes out. I have always had SE phones, but I will seriously consider whether I ever buy another. The ongoign support for their products is becoming rediculous!
