    It’s not quite a simple as that – individual service providers will need to “allow” the update for their customers…

    Users of “generic” Xperia 2011 smartphones should see the update already, but anyone with a branded (service provider-specific) Xperia 2011 smartphone will need to wait until their service provider makes the update available to them.
