That was totally unexpected. In the similar manner, any chance of Sony changing its stance on Jelly Bean update to Xperia U?

Why a present? Does it make camera 20 megapxel? or make screen 4.8 inch? or does it bring 2 Watts speakers?

This version is a leaked developer version of JB,
If Sony still uses the same distribution system it won't work on a regula Xperia T. Updating or repairing through PC Companion will also fail.
There are (or used to be, I'm not sure Sony still uses this system for Androids) BROWN and RED devices. BROWN devices are debug devices, sometimes prototypes. They don't accept firmware from RED devices. RED devices are consumer devices - and they don't accept firmware from BROWN devices either.

There is a thread on XDA regardin the leaked ROM:

Here is a video of the new UI:

In what world?? I Love sony design... that is why i've got a xperia S... but the updates are sooo slow.. they make me never buy sony ever again... this and the dated hardware! Everyone has quad core and great gf card and we have andreo 200 and 225... I remember Erricsson being the first and the best in ethnology.. sony is just following.. nothing more!
