Xperia users who have been waiting for the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment for their smartphones may now get their hopes up as Sony finally started rolling out the ICS update for their 2011 Xperia lineup.
As of April 13, 2012, the update will be available for the Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V, and Xperia Ray for users in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Norway. Now donâ€™t fret if your country was not mentioned as the rollout will continue over the next 4 to 6 weeks, making it available in other markets. In other words, you just have to wait a little longer.
Units to follow are the Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman which will have their ICS fix starting from end of May or early June of this year.
Over-the-air update will not be an option. To get Ice Cream Sandwich you will need to connect your Xperia smartphone to a PC or Mac and use Sony’s dedicated software suites.
We will be keeping track of the rollout and will update you once ICS for Xperia reaches the Philippines.
