Sony’s Xperia S has been an awesome phone except for well, its lack of Ice Cream Sandwich. While it’s questionable to launch a device of that nature with Gingerbread 2.3 in a world of Android 4.0, Sony has taken the time to finally give us what we have been waiting for— a concrete date for when the Android 4.0 update will arrive on the smartphone. The update is very much real and on its way as it is all set to arrive by late May or early June at the latest.
Keep in mind while the approximate release date of the update is set, the actual push of the updates will vary among the variations of the device. It’s expected the first to receive the update will be the unlocked or unbranded versions which will roll out in phases. The carrier-branded versions will follow suit but as you know unfortunately— it’s up carriers to decide if or when the devices can get the update. Here’s hoping we see the update sooner than later, especially for those of us planning on buying that Xperia Ion.
