It seems, that Sony Ericsson’s last year’s Xperia smartphones aren’t going to receive an (official) update to the latest version of Android – 4.1 Jelly bean. This was made clear from the words of Sony’s product manager for England – John Cooper, who has has it as an answer to people’s questions towards Sony, which were posted on the company’s Facebook page.
To be more specific, what he said was, that the Mini Pro and Arc S will remain with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but knowing, that the Arc S was Sony Ericsson’s most powerful smartphone for last year (with its 1,4gHz single-core processor) , we think it would be safe to say, that none of their 2011 models are going to receive the update officially. On the other hand, the company’s Xperia line up from this year is most likely going to receive the update, though it still hasn’t been made clear when exactly that’s going to happen. B. A.
