It may not be fashionable to talk about ageing, middle-of-the-road handsets, but let's be honest – an awful lot more of us have them than we'd happily admit.
And so it's with a sense of duty – if one dulled by a lack of any feeling of excitement – that we report that Sony is rolling out Android 4.3 Jelly Bean to a quartet of Xperia handsets.
Yes, that's Android Jelly Bean – as in the version before the recently announced KitKat. Fragmentation? What fragmentation?
As for the handsets in question, we're talking the Xperia SP, the Xperia T, the Xperia V and Xperia TX. And let's be honest – if you don't actually own one, you probably know little to nothing about any of them.
Aside from the stock features offered by Android 4.3, Sony is also throwing in improved versions of its own applications, including its Messaging, Smart Connect, Small apps, TrackID, Sony Select, Walkman, Album and Movies apps.
Arriving for the first time are Xperia Themes, the packs for which can be downloaded from Sony Select, as well as an improved Stamina mode.
The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update should be arriving imminently for the quartet of Xperia handsets – exactly when will depend on your carrier.
