Sony Ericsson's R&D center has obviously been making significant progress with the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Xperia lineup, as the company is now ready to talk specific dates.
A post on the company's blog has pledged a start of the updating process for the Xperia smartphones to the latest Android version at the end of March/early April 2012. The first batch of Sony Ericsson phones to get a taste of ICS includes Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray.
The update rollout for the second wave will begin from the end April or the start of May 2012. At that point the other seven Xperia smartphones eligible for an update will start getting in - Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini and mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active. The only non-Xperia Sony Ericsson to get an ICS update, Live with Walkman will also join this second group.
And don't worry, Sony Ericsson will make sure that you will be properly notified when the time to update your phone comes.
I've Xperia Ray ..... I Am Afraid to upgrade it...... 'Cause I Heard X-Ray Lag On ICS When 2 Apps Running at The same time.... Is It True???... Should I Upgrade...... Help Me Guys..... Sorry For Bad English....
ICS for Xperia Arc is now available in the Philippines
WARNING - ICS update broke USB tethering and wi-fi hotspot on most xperia 'A' American models. Not very many 'I' international ones affected. Only way to get these features back working is to downgrade back to Gingerbread.
