Sony Ericsson has just confirmed that its Xperia 2011 model will be able to update to Ice Cream Sandwich. It is a very good news but seem like Sony Ericsson might forget about its 2010 models. The updates have long been postponed, then canceled, then finally available. It did hurt the overall business.
This situation was such that many potential customers turned away from the brand, as the manufacturer was not trustworthy.
But in 2011this bad news won’t happen again that these errors will no longer be redone. For example, the bootloader can be unlocked, if the operator agrees. Quality hardware and software is well established (the test Xperia Neo / Kyno in the coming days will confirm this). It is also anticipated that Android 2.3.4 (Gingerbread) sent in October for all Xperia models sold in 2011.
But after Gingerbread, there will be Ice Cream Sandwich. While all other manufacturers give no information about a possible update, Sony Ericsson has just announced great news. All Xperia 2011 models (Active Xperia, Arc, Arc S, Play, Mini, Mini Pro, Neo, Neo V, Pro and Ray) will receive this update.
The release date of Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to be November and of course according to the announcement will be the first device to receive this update.
