Sony Xperia now gets Android 4.0 update

New Delhi, Apr 16 (): The most expected up gradation of android 4 sandwich to the mobile smart phone of Sony Xperia was unveiled by Sony. Sony’s blog post informed that the Android 4.0 software will be initially updated for Xperia arc S, Xperia and Xperio neo V which came with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, for consumers in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Iceland and Sweden. The other global markets will continue to get in 4 to 6 weeks. India will be getting the updates in the coming weeks.

We have already seen numerous beta builds of the Sony ICS update with its Timescape UI. To upgrade 2011 Sony Xperia smart phones, consumers will have to connect to PC or Mac. The smart phone users are asked to visit http://www.sonymobile.com/update and follow the steps.

The update of android 4 will bring new features like Face Unlock New contacts app and task switcher. The arc S, neo V and ray phones were the first to get Sony’s official beta releases of Android 4.0, surprisingly released to developers and the public directly from Sony’s website.

Due to hardware limitations on the 2011 Xperia devices, Sony wants users to decide whether it’s worth upgrading. Sony also said that Gingerbread is very stable, but the extra power required to run Ice Cream Sandwich may cause some devices to take a performance hit.

According to Sony’s previous posts, they should have all of their phones updated sometime this summer, presumably in all areas.

Earlier in 2011 (which clearly ended not too long ago), there was this company called Sony Ericsson, but somewhere along the way, something happened and the company decided to part ways – ditching the Ericsson name, and Sony continues to forge onwards in the smart phone industry on its own.

Earlier last week, Sony Mobile Communications launched Xperia S handset in the Indian market at a price of Rs 32,549, along with three other devices.
