If you thought that you are stuck with using Windows Mobile with your Xperia X1, you would be wrong. Of course, the only officially supported operating system is Windows Mobile, but that doesn’t stop you from tinkering a little.

XDA-Developers have released a version of Google Android that works on the Xperia X1. It is still missing a few features, such as the GPS functionality, but it works well.

Also from XDA-Developers is a port of Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 which gives you full-on Linux functionality on the X1.

It seems these days that we are fast heading to the days of being able to choose whichever OS we like to use on our phones, and that does make the future exciting!
