Even more confusion over Sony's Xperia Android upgrade plans

Even more confusion over Sony's Xperia Android upgrade plansWe're already in a permanent state of confusion thanks to Sony. It seems to have more Xperia handsets on sale than it does customers buying them and more and more arrive on what feels like a daily basis. Overkill, much?

And now, there's the big old hoo-ha over which of these devices is going to be graced with a bit of Ice Cream Sandwich action - or even Jelly Bean 4.1.

Yes, not far off a year since Ice Cream Sandwich was unveiled in Hong Kong (it'll be October before you know it!) and we're still talking about some phones not having ICS 4.0 when Jelly Bean is just around the corner for many.

Anyway, now it looks like the Xperia range will be getting upgraded after all, following an official statement from the manufacturer on the matter:

"A quick note - during a Q&A session last week on our Sony Mobile GB Facebook page, a local spokesperson gave information out in error on our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software development and rollout for 2011 Xperia Smartphones."

That's all come from the official Sony blog and follows much confusion in recent days over which handsets would be blessed if any - including from us here at Mobot Towers.

"We are actively investigating Android OS upgrades for all devices, but in the meantime, our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia S and 2011 Xperia smartphones continues as planned," the statement continues.

"As always, feel free to drop a question below and keep your eyes fixed on the blog, as we’ll be bringing you more on our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia P and other 2012 Xperia smartphones over the next couple of weeks."

Nothing like a coherent message, is there?
