Android 2.3.4 update for Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo arrives early

Last month Sony Ericsson told us to expect the Android 2.3.4 update for various Xperia handsets to start in October. We like it when manufacturers beat their targets, and we are happy to tell you that there are reports of the update hitting the Xperia Neo. For now it appears to be hitting Nordic/Dutch firmwares, but it should move steadily to other areas.

This update will bring your firmware to 4.0.1.A.0.283, and it will include video for Google Chat, a new 3D panorama camera feature, a swipe text input system, screen capture, and further enhancements to Facebook inside Xperia. We are not sure how rapid the update will make the rounds, but make sure to hit your Settings/About Phone/System Updates to see if you can manually pull it. Let us know in the comments if you were able to get it and what area you’re in.
