Unlike some of the other companies around Sony came right out and made their intentions very clear for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Stating that all Xperia smartphones from 2011 would receive the update to the latest and greatest OS from Google. While they’ve already started these upgrades for many Nordic countries, today they’ve update their blog with additional details.
Today Sony has updated the Sony Mobile Blog basically stating that the updates are going smoothly, everything is on track, and the updates will continue to roll out globally as fast as they can. Sony is still working with the various carriers and networks but expects things to continue at a rapid pace.
Phones like the Xperia arc S, ray, neo V, and others are all seeing the updates in Nordic countries and the Netherlands, and more are coming soon. Sony reminds us the update must be completed on a PC, not over the air, by going to sonymobile.com/update when the updates are available. So basically we learned nothing new from Sony, no ETA’s or time-frames were given, but they did supply the neat ICS picture shown above.
Stay tuned for more details as the Sony Xperia line updates are coming soon to a handset near you.
