Sony’s Xperia smartphone portfolio is as diverse as it is rich, but despite the inherent technical differences between the products they’re all treated as equals when it comes to software support. Not buying it? Here’s your proof – the Xperia P, Xperia go and E dual are all getting Jelly Bean updates basically at the same time.
According to Sony Mobile’s blog, the Android 4.1 rollout will begin for the trio this week, but it will be a “phased process and will ramp up over this month and next”. Translation – don’t be pissed if you’re going to be stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich for several weeks going forward.
The Xperia P is the older, but also the most technically impressive phone here, having been released in May of last year with a 4-inch 960 x 540 pix res display, dual-core 1 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and 8 MP camera.
The 3.5-inch Xperia go landed just a couple of months later with 512 MB of RAM and a 5 MP main snapper, while the Xperia E dual is only a month old and is the textbook definition of an entry-level gadget.
Both the P and Go have undergone an important software makeover already, having on-board Android 2.3 Gingerbread upon launch, while the E dual has for some reason been released with ICS, unlike its Jelly Bean-toting single-SIM twin.
