NTT DoCoMo stops Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for quartet of Xperia smartphones

Sony Xperia PlayNTT DoCoMo of Japan has just announced that after mulling over a particular issue for the longest time, they have decided to put a stop to an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for a quartet of Xperia models from Sony. These particular handsets will be the Xperia acro (SO-02C) which has burned up sales charts in quite the charming manner to date, the aging Xperia arc (SO-01C), the maligned Xperia PLAY (SO-01D) and the Xperia ray (SO-03C).

These four models came under consideration for an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, but at the end of the day, NTT DoCoMo figured out it was easier to shelve the update simply because of memory and performance issues – definitely the lack of memory is involved for some of the handsets, that is for sure. DoCoMo PR mentioned that 1GB of RAM is required to have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich run smoothly, although it is rather weird as those living in the West have had Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich running on those devices for some time already (other than the Sony Xperia PLAY, of course).
