65 years of the Viaduct: Remembering Seattle's most contested elevated freeway

  65 years of the Viaduct: Remembering Seattle's most contested elevated freeway The viaduct is no more. Seattle's Alaskan Way Viaduct was many things — beloved, hated, seismically unsound, embattled, short, a helluva view. And after 65 years, the final bits of it have been torn down. In its wake it leaves a brand new tunnel, a brand new waterfront, and plenty of memories of driving on it and praying an earthquake doesn't strike. Still, Seattle wouldn't be who it is without that stretch of highway, which, in just six decades, left a bigger footprint than its few miles.

We were expecting several Sony phones to see the Android 10 update by the end of 2019 , but it turns out only two handsets will receive it. The first two phones to be eligible for Android 10 are the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 , Sony 's last two major smartphones, which are a flagship and a 'compact'

Sony recently published a timeline detailing when we could expect Android 10 on its phones . While many older devices are only supposed to get the update "early 2020 onwards," the company was more specific with the Xperia 1 and 5 , which should get the new software this month.

We were expecting several Sony phones to see the Android 10 update by the end of 2019, but it turns out only two handsets will receive it. The rest, of which rather few will be updated at all, will have to wait until 2020.

This news comes from a Sony blog post, where the company confirmed its Android 10 timeline, including the products and rough timings for updates.

The first two phones to be eligible for Android 10 are the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5, Sony's last two major smartphones, which are a flagship and a 'compact' version of the flagship respectively. These two phones will see the update sometime in December.

After that, several other smartphones "can expect to access the upgrade early 2020 onwards", including the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus from early 2019, the Xperia XZ3 from late 2018, and the Xperia XZ2, XZ2 Premium and XZ2 Compact from early 2018.

No Sony phones from before 2018 are eligible for the Android 10 upgrade, which rules out many devices people still use like the Xperia XZ1. So many Sony fans might find themselves stuck with Android 9 from now on.

There's no exact timing for these phones' upgrades, but it will likely be staggered depending on region and handset, judging by similar Android 10 roll outs from other companies.

A previous leak suggested the Xperia 10 devices wouldn't be eligible for Android 10, but this isn't the case apparently, so owners of these phones are lucky. Owners of older handsets might be hurt by the recent cut-off line for the update eligibility though, and some certainly are, judging by the comments section of Sony's blog.
