If you bought an Xperia smartphone from Sony Ericsson sometime in 2011, you won’t have to feel left out when Ice Cream Sandwich rolls out. Sony Ericsson promises that the whole 2011 Xperia portfolio will receive Ice Cream Sandwich.
The 2011 Xperia portfolio includes the Arc, Arc S, Play, Mini, Mini Pro, Neo, Neo V, Pro, Active, Ray, and even the Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman. Before rolling out the update Sony Ericsson has to make sure the experience carries over to and merges with the new features of 4.0. With Ice Cream Sandwich opening up yesterday, at least we can rest assured that the manufacturer should already be hard at work making the update work with each individual phone.
Sony Ericsson isn’t saying anything about when each phone can expect the see Ice Cream Sandwich, it plans on announcing those when eh update comes closer. It seems safe to say that early 2012 would be the earliest we’d expect it. So maybe we’ll hear something around CES.
