Sony offers Ice Cream Sandwich to the remaining Xperia go, Xperia U and Xperia sola phones


Back at the beginning of 2012 when Sony Mobile announced the list of devices from 2011 and 2012 which are eligible for an upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich made a promise to deliver these software updates throughout the year-long and apparently Sony kept it.

At the end of this week Sony begin pushing out Android 4.0 upgrades to the only remaining devices on the ICS list: Xperia go, Xperia U and Xperia sola. While go and U will receive everything that comes with the new OS, Xperia sola receives an extra feature called “glove mode” which will enhance its “Floating Touch” technology even more. This means that when its cold outside you’ll be covered and still able to use your device with the gloves on. A demo of this feature is shown off in the video attached at the bottom.

Sony says that the Android 4.0 upgrade availability will vary from one market to another and with every carrier requirements and procedures, some carriers like to test and add their own “bloat” to the firmware before beginning to role the OS to customers. So, if you didn’t get it yet, now you know why its being delayed. Master Yoda style quote: Patient be, or not!
