With the news that the Google Nexus S and most Gingerbread smartphones will get the Android 4.0 treatment, it is no surprise that Sony Ericsson has made known its plans to upgrade its Xperia lineup to the latest Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Engadget - Yesterday, in a post on its Facebook page, Sony Ericsson's Dutch branch stated that it will indeed upgrade its Xperia lineup to the latest Android OS, though it didn't offer any details on release dates. We reached out to the manufacturer for confirmation, and received the following statement:
"Sony Ericsson is currently rolling out the upgrade to Gingerbread 2.3.4 across its entire 2011 Xperia smartphone portfolio. This software upgrade will be available through a phased roll out in select markets. Beyond Gingerbread 2.3.4, we plan to upgrade our 2011 Xperia smartphone portfolio to the next Android platform made available to us."
We will keep you posted when more updates come in.
