Sony rolls out Android 4.0 ICS update for 2011 Xperia smartphones

Sony has started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for its 2011 Xperia smartphones. The upgrade will be initially available for the Sony Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V and Xperia Ray devices. Update for rest of the 2011 Xperia devices will be rolled out in May/June.

"The software will initially be made available for Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V and Xperia Ray for consumers in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Norway. The software roll out will continue over the next 4-6 weeks, becoming available in other global markets – we will update you here on the blog when additional markets can upgrade,” Sony said in a blog post.

Sony will not be releasing the ICS update over-the-air. Users will need to install the update via a PC or Mac connection. Xperia users are suggested to visit http://www.sonymobile.com/update and follow the instructions.

The devices slated to receive the ICS OS upgrade by the end of May/early June are as follows - Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman.

Sony had recently detailed timing for the roll-out of the latest Android OS. The company, however, on its developer website noted the latest OS could be less stable on the Xperia phones (launched in 2011) as compared to its predecessor Gingerbread OS.

“Because this update is a significant revamp of some of your phone’s features, we want to make sure you take a conscious and informed decision to upgrade, so that you continue to enjoy optimum experiences from your Xperia smartphones,” said Sony.
