    The next version of Android, codenamed Ice Cream Sandwich, is going to be released sometime October/November, according to Google's own Eric Schmidt. Then it will be up to OEMs to issue updates for their existing phones (taking longer for some while the others acting faster). According to a Sony Ericsson representative, all of the manufacturer's 2011 Xperia phones in this year's line-up will be updated to Android Ice Cream Sandwich. That's a lot of phones: Xperia Arc, Xperia Play, Xperia Neo, Xperia Pro, Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V, and Xperia Ray. There are no details of course as per when ...

    Sony Ericsson has been struggling to get some of its new Xperias out the door, as the nation of Japan recovers from this year's devastating earthquake. Several such phones, including the Xperia Neo, saw their releases postponed. The Neo, from what we heard, would be coming to the UK sometime this July. More recently, Sony Ericsson Italy tweeted that the phone would be available in mainland Europe the first week in July, reinforcing the earlier estimate. Those guesses may have been slightly too conservative, as some UK retailers are already showing the phone up for sale, ready to ship out ...

    Sony Ericsson's announcement that it would start offering a service to unlock the bootloaders on certain Xperia models came as great news. While there are a lot of restrictions for what devices qualify, it's a huge step towards opening up the company's hardware for Android enthusiasts. One thing that wasn't clear at the time would be how the unlocked bootloader would affect normal software updates. Sony Ericsson has since confirmed that once you unlock your bootloader, you'll no longer be able to update through its SEUS tool. Earlier, the company had said that even if your bootloader was ...

    After showing us its new bootloader unlocking service, we were left impressed by Sony Ericsson's support of the developer community. Now it is supplementing the bootloader unlock by releasing a guide to creating a custom kernel, an ability exposed by the unlocked bootloader. Once again there are clear warnings present - bootloader unlocking may void warranty, and is not revertible to a locked/original state. Sony Ericsson's guide walks the budding developer through downloading all necessary software and installing it to configure the development environment. Configuration examples are ...

    Some people say that good things come in threes, and that certainly seems to be the case here, with news arriving of Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc, Play, and Neo successfully being rooted. You're going to need your bootloader unlock code for the process, which you can now retrieve for qualifying phones using Sony Ericsson's website tool (you'll need a phone that's not SIM-locked to a carrier, and be willing to relinquish warranty coverage as a result of your tinkering). Once you've got the bootloader open, you can re-flash your Xperia with one of the specially-prepared images, tailored for ...

    Sony Ericsson has launched the Xperia Neo in February with the occasion of this year's MWC, together with the Xperia Play and Xperia Arc. Initial word of availability was for April 19 but this unfortunately just got bumped to Q3. Our friends over at Clove inform us that the Xperia Neo will be delayed to July in the UK -- and maybe other regions too -- most probably due to the recent tragic events in Japan. The official word on delay names "disruption to the supply chain as a result of the disaster in Japan" as the reason. While nothing's for sure, one thing is, unfortunately: there will be ...

    Last time Sony Ericsson's Xperia Neo made an appearance at the FCC, it was outfitted with a 3G radio tuned to UMTS band VIII, marking it for likely European or Asian service. Two weeks later, it's made a new appearance with a slightly different model number and frequency support for a North American carrier. This round through, the Xperia Neo has all the markings of an AT&T smartphone, with UMTS bands II and V under its belt, as well as quad-band GSM. Despite the addition of US 3G, the phone looks like it will still have international coverage under the 2100MHz UMTS I band. This new Neo is ...
