Good news for Sony Ericsson Xperia users. Sony Ericsson’s Dutch Facebook page posted a status update saying that it will be upgrading 2011′s Xperia devices to the latest version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich) when it’s finally released. The status update also mentioned that the Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update will be rolling out to its entire 2011 Xperia smartphone portfolio in the meantime.
Since the whole fiasco with Éclair and Froyo on its Xperia devices last year, it looks like Sony Ericsson has really turned over a new leaf, ensuring that its Android phones remain up to date. No word on an official release date for the Ice Cream Sandwich update but seeing how Google hasn’t released the source code for the operating system yet, that was expected. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted.
