Yet I am rocking an Xperia U with kit kat 4.4.2 :D Modding community rocks!
Was the Xperia T the phone Bond used in Skyfall?
Bond's probably moved on to a new phone by now, I guess. MI6 would always have him with the latest and greatest.

It's because they don't have anything but veyron variations (Which is quite similar to Apple).

It doesn't not change however one simple fact: true premium products get support for longer (even beyond they commercial life), while "make believe" premium is dumped like the crap -- even though, for Sony's credit, their crap seems to shine for a "wee bit" longer than other Androids.
EdB, 04 Feb 20142014 JUST started. They're ending support for phones purchased only 14 months ago. That's no w... moreIts not the purchase date that they see. They see the launch date. Which is way before that.
Only 4 phones on ICS, the rest are on JB. Impressive.
Lg should learn from Sony.
Lg should start saying the truth, no updates for midrange and low end.
Say it now, so none will have false hope.
2014 JUST started. They're ending support for phones purchased only 14 months ago. That's no way to get repeat customers. Every device should get at least 2 of the major OS upgrades.
I am a Sony Fan, but I dont think SONY is doing anything wrong. You cant expect to keep getting free upgrades for 2 year old device. Google itself does not provide software upgrade for 2 year old nexus.
Anyways, those devices are technically now end of life for hardware.
I will rather change the device every 2 years. nothing wrong in that.Sirius is my next if it is as good as Z was.
scriptwriter, 04 Feb 2014So Google (Android) have put all this work into kitkat 4.4 allowing it run on devices with as ... moreGet real, being able to run on 512MB doesnt mean it will run it well, its gonna be terrible, mark my words.
Gingerbread is still the only option for low memory phones, in fact several new phones from Micromax and the alike were launched in 2013 running Gingerbread on 256MB RAM.
Xperia U is mentioned here, i have one also, currently actually using it too. But its not always a good experience because it runs ICS, sad to think this was a very pleasant phone while it still had Gingerbread, and many Xperia U owners have chosen to flash theirs to Gingerbread again to get back the fluidity and performance. Updates can be a bad thing, owners of SE Xperia Play hate Sony for not releasing ICS for that model, they do not know how lucky they are to stay on GB.
To hell with Sony.
what is the point in buying a flagship phone of 2012 and not get support for even 2 years ?
Hate You Sony.
Aha. No wonder Lg/samsung are shoving internet connectivity/software on their household appliances last CES. It all makes sense now.
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2014Good riddance for Sony. No need to waste ressources on older hardware, people keeping their ph... moreHow rude. It's not about the latest bling. It's about security as well. At this rate, they're gonna fill the world with unsecure, abandoned hardware/software and turn it to hackers playground.
Anonym, 04 Feb 2014Xperia S was an upper-mid class phone? Slow down that spinning dear doctor! Apple phones ar... moreFake info,while apple does update its old devices ,old iPhone, despite its capability will get cut down in features for its update and sometimes new update will make it slower despite barely any changes in OS for it. That is what is called "planned obsolescence",Google it and you might understand better why apple bothers to update its old iPhone at all and why it does that way.
So Google (Android) have put all this work into kitkat 4.4 allowing it run on devices with as little as 512MB and getting everyone excited because of this. Only for some OEMs to say 'No, we're not supporting these devices any more!!'
This is a real 'kick in the face' for the consumer who brought a mid/low end device at the end of last year thinking it will get updated to kitkat because it has 512MB/1GB of RAM.
The OEMs need to put more work into supporting previous handsets rather than focusing purely on their high end flag-ships. Most people cant afford a brand handset every year.
back to bad old days - no updates - no more sales lies about "planned updates" - be honest sony and others - but honesty whats that ?
this new is not correct at all 2012 sony`s lineup still be t, tl , v and tx all are under investigation for kitkat so even is for xperia zr still under investigation dont know why
Honestly i think sony is making a good job, slow but good , there is not in the market a perfect android or wp or iphone
actually i have an xperia tx still wait for jb 4.3
just can just it will worth the time we wait
sry bad english
