Today I have some passable news, bad news and little else to offer in the world of Sony smartphones. The Japanese-based company whom are a leading smartphone brand in the UK in terms of market awareness are failing their customer’s big time, and it is all down to software updates.
First, the passable news; Jelly Bean will be coming to select Xperia handsets however not until 2013. The very first handsets to get this update are the Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V in mid-Q1 2013. Unsurprisingly, the Sony Xperia S, Xperia Acro S, Xperia Ion, Xperia P, Xperia Go and Xperia J will also get Jelly Bean however Sony have not released any details as to when these smartphones will get updates. 2013, of course, will be the year though.
Now, the bad news; all 2011 handsets will have to make do with ICS because Sony will not be officially releasing an update to Jelly Bean for you. That means smartphones like the Xperia Arc, Xperia Play and Xperia Neo are dead in the water, tossed aside like a well-worn jumper.
So, not good news for Xperia smartphone owners — of course any consumers who have a 2012 model smartphone are fine, however, yet Sony seems to presume that you fine folk’ still have patience left after months’ worth of the silent treatment.
