Some good news for those rocking a Sony Xperia P smartphone — you have an update on the way. And yes, it is an update that is bringing a new dessert. Sony has announced the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Xperia P. The update process has officially begun as of today and according to Sony, it will continue rolling out “over the next few weeks in markets globally.” Needless to say, that means the update may or may not actually be available for you as of today. In fact, further details note that “direct availability in the phone may vary across different markets and carriers.” Rest assured though, if you are carrying an Xperia P smartphone — the update is coming. As for what the update will offer, the goodies break down as follows;

  • New ways to experience your media with new media applications – “WALKMAN”, “Album” and “Movies”
  • Extended standby mode, increasing standby time by up to four times (depending on user-profile and data consumption)
  • Lock screen with improved functionality
  • Resizable widgets for improved personalization
  • Improved control of your mobile data consumption
  • Recent Apps button for a clear overview of your applications

Finally, Sony also mentioned that the Xperia U, Xperia sola and Xperia go will be the next three devices to get an update. Sadly though, nothing specific as to when.
