2011 Sony Xperia devices-Your Android 2.3.4 update is arriving NOW

It has been quite a while now that we have been hearing a bunch of hype from Sony about plans to update all of their 2011 Experia phones to Android 2.3.4 starting in October. If you look at your calendar you will notice that it is still September yet and some users are reporting to have already received the update. It is pretty rad when a manufacturer beats there own proposed roll out date, huh?

Yesterday we told you about the Xperia Neo receiving the 2.3.4 update to users with Nordic/Dutch devices, now we have further confirmation of expansion to the Xperia Play and the Xperia Arc. Unfortunately, there has been no word yet on the Xperia Pro but should soon join the ranks of 2.3.4.

One of the more popular features for the Neo and the Arc is the ability to take 3D pictures! “No way,” you’re saying right now, “you can’t do that with a 2D camera, can you?” Oh, but with Sony Ericsson’s 3D panorama software you can! The only caveat, you must display your photos on a 3D capable T.V. in order to enjoy your new multidimensional memories. For you Xperia Play owners, I regret to inform you that you have been omitted from this feature for reasons unknown.  

Xperia phones will also have a slew of other cool additions such as:

  • Swype
  • New smooth screen on/off animation
  • Ability to change play-list order
  • Enable/disable extensions
  • Some small UI changes (Folder icon, Widgets icon)
  • Google Talk with video calling support
  • Automatic brightness
  • Expanded “Facebook inside Xperia” (share apps amongst friends)
  • Screenshot capability (hold power button, last menu option)

Stay tuned as we will let you know as soon as we here when the update rolls out for the Xperia Pro.

    I wonder how long we’ll have to wait before Telstra (Australia) make this available to their customers? Three months? Six Months? Longer?

    If the Xperia X10a upgrades are anything to go by, I’m not going to hold my breath…
