Android ICS rolling out for 2011 Xperia lineup

Sony Ericsson may be no more, but if you bought an Xperia smartphone during 2011 then that's the name staring at you from your phone's sculpted face.

And as of today that face is getting a fresh new look, as Sony has confirmed the Android 4.0.4 update – aka Ice Cream Sandwich – is rolling out to the 2011 Xperias, starting it seems with the Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo.

That's what Slashgear is claiming, anyway, though the post on Sony's user forum lists the entire batch of 2011 Xperias together, namely: the Xperia Ray, Xperia Arc, Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo, Xperia Neo V, Xperia Pro, Xperia Mini, Xperia Mini Pro, Xperia Active and Xperia Live With Walkman.

The only name missing – as we recently mentioned – is the Xperia Play, which will be left stranded on Gingerbread for good, a fairly appropriate way to end off what has been a pretty sorry tale of what might have been for the so-called PlayStation Phone.

But still, happy days for everyone else. And of course for Xperia S owners, too – won't be long now, surely.

Sony upgraded my Neo to ICS months ago - via their PC Companion app.
In the about phone menu it still says android version 2.3.4, but build number 4.0.4, and it's definitely ICS.
