When it comes to operating system updates, there are many factors to consider – ranging from the carrier to the hardware manufacturer itself. In the case of Sony’s Xperia S (which was first spotted at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona earlier this year), it was originally thought to receive the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update sometime in the later part of the second quarter – which would mean the end of June at worst, and even then, this is a very vague figure. However, it seems that things have been cleared up a bit this time around, as a support person at the Talk Sony Mobile forums mentioned that the “Xperia S is planned to get ICS somewhere around late May/early June. That’s what’s been said and that’s still what we’re sticking to.” Well, the end of May and early June is less than a month away, so if patience is not your strong suit, the next three weeks could be agonizing, but I believe that for most folks, life would go on as usual until the Ice Cream Sandwich update rolls out.
