Sony has begun updating its support pages for the Xperia smartphones released in the year 2012. All of those pages list Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the smartphones "latest and final version".
There are only three droids from this lineup, which fate is still uncertain - the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V. Sony says their KitKat update is "under investigation". So there is still hope for those three, but given the fate of their siblings chances aren't too great.

The 2012 Xperia phones to be left stuck forever on Ice Cream Sandwich are: Xperia U, Xperia tipo (and tipo dual), Xperia sola, Xperia miro, and Xperia arc S. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean will be the last for Xperia SL, Xperia ion, Xperia acro S, Xperia J, Xperia go, Xperia S, and Xperia P.

We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for all Xperia T, TX and V owners. We guess the rest should turn to some third-party developers for newer Android releases.
Thank you, Jake, for the tip!
obviously you don't have xperia s, I got 4.2.2 update last year. You are just a samsung fan!
S3, S3 mini, and budget phones will have kitkat at the same time or before most 2013 devices get kitkat. So yeah.. That's Samung alone. And those devices are already on 4.3 while others are at most on 4.2 if you are lucky. So try again?
Forget about updates.My 13 month old Xperia go started malfunctioning and I took it to the nearest Xperia service centre.I am told that no service is available beyond warranty period.Now,what am I to do with this phone. Sony please tell me.
