Last month we gave you the news that Sony was buying out Ericsson’s share of the two company’s joint mobile venture. While the deal goes through its business as usual as Ice Cream Sandwich is coming to the entire 2011 Xperia lineup, after it was officially confirmed by Sony Ericsson.
We first reported about rumors that the Xperia lineup would be tasting Ice Cream Sandwich last month, and now according to The Next Web the mobile manufacturer have confirmed the news. There will be many owners of recently purchased Android devices hoping their device will be getting the new OS, and is possibly the biggest fault of the platform with many handsets deserted by manufacturers.
But that won’t be a concern for owners of any of the 2011 Xperia line up following the announcement by Sony Ericsson. This will mean the Xperia Arc, Xperia Arc S, Xperia Pro, Xperia Active, Xperia Ray, Xperia Play, Xperia Mini and Mini Pro, Xperia Neo and Neo V, and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman are all set to get a taste of the Ice Cream goodness.
Unfortunately the company have not revealed when the updates will start landing on the devices, but they have promised more information on this “in due course”. The new operating system will provide users with a new look interface, and have a new Face Unlock feature as well as NFC support on certain devices. It also has an upgraded camera app among its many new features that have got Android fans excited.
Are you pleased to hear that Android 4.0 is comi9ng to the Xperia lineup?
