Sony Ericsson has Ice Cream Sandwich on their to do list, bringing the latest OS to phones from the 2011 Xperia line, including phones like the Xperia Arc and the Xperia Play. The official statement from Sony Ericsson Nederland is as follows:
We are planning to upgrade our 2011 Xperia smartphone portfolio to the next Android platform, following Gingerbread 2.3.4. The official Sony Ericsson communication about software upgrades will always be what my international colleagues publish on our Blog:http://blogs.sonyericsson.com/
It’s always good to hear manufacturers keeping their products’ software up to date. It’s necessary, to keep up security, and in the case of ICS, to get all those nifty new features.
