    Right at the end of last month, Sony spoke-up regarding the Ice Cream Sandwich updates that had been scheduled for some of last year's Xperia models. We had been expecting to see them released before the end of March, but Sony ended up having to let us know that there would be a short delay. The best it would offer about just when the updates would eventually arrive was sometime around mid-April. It looks like that estimation was right on-schedule, as today Sony announced that ICS updates are starting to become available for the Xperia Arc S, Neo V, and Ray. Sony fans in Scandinavia will ...

    There was quite a debate regarding Sony's Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Xperia 2011 line-up, especially that the manufacturer initially told its customers that the 2011 phones pack 512MB of RAM and a slower processor, specs below those "recommended" to run Ice Cream Sandwich. In a recent blog post, Sony goes on about the differences between Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich, trying to get its customers informed. "We are actually proud to say that our Gingerbread software is very stable and has great performance, so it's not a bad idea to stay on this release. Ice Cream Sandwich is ...

    According to the PTCRB site, a brand new firmware is listed as of December 20 with software version number 4.0.2.A.0.62. No, this is not the Ice Cream Sandwich update as the manufacturer was kind enough to let the world know we should expect it between March and May of next year. If you have a Sony Ericsson Xperia arc, arc S, neo, neo V and PLAY, you might want to keep an eye out for the new firmware. According to the Unofficial Sony Ericsson Blog, you shouldn't expect any new features but a couple of bugfixes. The firmware itself is "mainly targeted to MENA (Middle East North Africa)". ...

    What we already know and Sony Ericsson -- to be called only Sony after mid-2012 -- emphasized many times in the past is that its entire Xperia line-up from this year will receive official Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich updates.

    Just yesterday we've heard from Sony Ericsson Italy that the Xperia 2011 line-up will get its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich treat in March 2012 and now we have another version of the story. There are more possibilities here: Sony could roll out the updates at different times in different regions; we might be caught in a marketing war or some people give out information just for the sake of it. Regardless, here's the deal: a Sony Ericsson employee said that, contrary to the Italian branch information, the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the 2011 Xperia line-up should be ...

    Earlier today we heard that Sony Ericsson had made a decision that would make users of its Android phones very happy, that it had committed to releasing Android Ice Cream Sandwich updates across its full lineup of this year's models. That kind of future support is a question that's on the minds of plenty of Android users, but none of us expected such a definitive promise this early on. Sadly, it turns out there's probably a good reason we were surprised, since Sony Ericsson has now backtracked from that claim. The company clarified its commitment to future Android software releases by ...
