Sony announced that it has taken the lead on the Android Open Source Project for its popular Xperia S smartphone. The exercise began back in August when Jean Baptiste Queru, Google’s Technical Lead of the AOSP announced it. The current progress on the Sony Xperia S has been demonstrated in a video, which appeared in the Sony developer’s blog. See it below.
Sony has taken the lead because from Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on, the Xperia S will not remain as the target handset of the main AOSP branch. However, the current progress on the Xperia S will not go to naught – Sony will maintain the AOSP for the device at GitHub, where developers are encouraged to step in and help.
Stock Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has worked out quite well for the Sony Xperia S with most of the hardware functioning properly, including the SD card, Wi-Fi, and all sensors. The audio and modem are also working, but Sony won’t release its binaries right now for proprietary reasons. The next planned step is to bring Android 4.2 to the smartphone.

san , 06 Mar 2013I'm a mechatronic engineer not a computer engineer or IT.thank u. Then why do the companies call that 1080p capable phones if we are not able to record a real 1080p which we might be getting from a Professional DSLR or whatever source I don't know as I'm not a professional but hoping you to explain it to me as you know about this and i'm interested.
when I made that video I was on bike and moving at a pace of about 45-50km/h but believe me that video was just fantastic I did not notice any area where I could see pixels...
If you are a mechatronic Engineer then I would be looking forward to it:-)
