Earlier today we gave you the news that the LG had confirmed what of its Optimus range would be seeing the Android Ice Cream Sandwich Android update. Now we have reports that the Sony Ericsson Xperia ICS release date maybe confirmed.
Earlier this month we told you that Sony Ericsson had confirmed that all of its 2011 Xperia range would be getting the Android update at some time in the future. But unfortunately at the time no date was given when it would actually be landing. Now what seems like a growing trend Phone Arena is reporting that news of the update has again came from Italy.
The Marketing Manager of Sony Ericsson in the country Maurizio de Palma has said the operating system update is expected to land around March 2012. This is the same month that the company normally releases its new Xperia handsets to the world.
According to Maurizio de Palma the code for the new Android operating system was only released on the 15th of November, and it could take quite a while to code everything to update the 2011 Xperias. March may seem a little too soon but hopefully that won’t be the case.
The company have previously said it had made mistakes with Android updates before, and promised it had learnt its lesson with them. Sony Ericsson may even beat the likes of HTC and LG and bring out the updated software to its 2011 handsets. Hopefully as we get nearer to March we may see some actual dates released by the company with specific information for each handset.
