This is the main reason I forgo Samsung, Sony, HTC and pretty much anything else that are not Nexus and not directly upgraded by Google.
AnonD-44860, 19 Oct 2012only 3 of htc device will get jelly bean and the time is in2013(not announced even),lg is wors... morei was thinking to get the xperia u its a great phone, the bad thing is the memory, so i decided to buy ace+s7500 and there are news that it will be getting 4.1 not 4.0, thats the problem with all devices and brands, they don´t update cause they want us to buy the next one, but hopefully some developer will bring it
never beleive Sony, still waiting for ICS update on my unlocked Xperia Ray. Customer Service has no clue when this will take place, all the could say "Sorry". Keep checking and u will soon get an update. This is going on for few months. First and Last Sony phone, no more........
say goodbye Sony...customers already hated you for faulty ics upgrades on 2011 lineup
Til now I doesn't have ICS update for my Xperia Sola!
Too late Sony like Sony Ericsson
Go to hell with your marketing strategy. So upset with Xperia mini since the day I bought it. Keep on evaluating forever. I am going to dump this as soon as I get a chance.
Sony Japanese excellence........what a crap.
but i need the 4.0 for xperia play it is not possible for play user plz realize 4.0 for i m requst u on the be half of
the play user
Xperia U has a lot better hardware than Xperia J and they left behind? WTF?!?
If I recall it has reserved 2gb rom memory for OS. I cant believe that so much space isnt enough for JB update O_o
only 3 of htc device will get jelly bean and the time is in2013(not announced even),lg is worse than htc in update,samsung will update some of device but i am sure those handset which not get ics will not recive jelly bean or if get they will get in mid 2013,(i am sure only note,s2 ,s3,note 2 and tabs will get and note and s2 will get in 2013),so why u treat like children? i myself not happy to hear these news but think fairly and look to other manufacture list and time then argue with sony. i hope sony launch 4.1 fot T and TX,V and S sooner.just this and not argue with sony
james, 19 Oct 2012i can confirm that only the mentioned phones in the article will get it. no jb for sola, neo l... moreAre you one of the developers from Sony, to confirm that Sola and Neo L wouldn't get JB? If you read carefully the source, it says that 2011 Xperia lineup "will not be upgraded beyond Ice Cream Sandwich." That statement puts an end to 2011 Xperia's not having JB.
But things aren't clear yet about 2012 Xperias that wasn't mentioned. So there's still hope for 2012 Xperias like SL, Neo L, U, and Sola (I doubt Miro and Tipo will have JB). I also agree to others, Sony need to hire developers. Mid Q1 of 2013 is too late for JB and those updates are for high-ends only. WTH!!!
ah...I dont care about it its business man will people buy new devices when they can have he same os in their old phone....just head to xda and search your device do some research and have jelly bean...(i am running paranoid jb rom 2.15 on my neo v and it has 400mb internal memory and has less bugs) just give a try save the sony devlopers work man
then when the next OS will be released as usual Sony wont upgrade the 2012 series
It's a shame that the Xperia 2011 line is being left out. If they can have ICS, I'm sure they could get JB. This is just pure marketing. That's why I bought a Nexus 7 and my next phone will for sure be a Nexus too.
Calm down people.in the sony blog they said they are still evaluating possibilities to give JB to xperia sola and u
Please write your complain in sony fb wall, theire may be a chance.this is unfair.
It's a bit disappointing that the Xperia J, which has a cut-down version of the Qualcomm chipset that powers the 2011 Xperias, is getting JB but the older models are not.And nexus & glaxy mini 2 low-end phone get jb.
dodong24, 19 Oct 2012SONY DEVELOPERS ARE BUNCH OF IDIOTS!!! They are very slow and very poor in making updates!! Ev... moreSony works with developers. The real issue is the carriers which would drag this out until the end of time to make you buy a new phone.
And they have won again.
