I just bought an Xperia x10. How can I check what version of Android it has?

This is broadly applicable so I edited it, hope you don't mind. – Matthew Read Jun 10 '11 at 19:11

Look at Settings -> About phone -> Firmware version (or similar).

Other users: Feel free to edit in any other places it shows up, since I know there are a few devices that have changed it for no good reason :P – Matthew Read Jun 10 '11 at 19:12

On the HTC Desire (and probably most HTC devices) Settings -> About phone -> Software information

must be an HTC thing, my Evo does that too – jlehenbauer Jun 29 '11 at 12:11

Look at settings about device or phone or tablet, press android version again and again. If it's Jelly Bean a jelly bean face will be shown, if it's KitKat a K will be shown.
