Sony Ericsson reveals Android ICS update dates

Sony Ericsson reveals Android ICS update datesAndroid Ice Cream Sandwich has been out for almost a month now and manufacturers should be well under way with their various tweaks now that the majority of the big boys have confirmed they'll be supporting it on their higher-end handsets.

One of those big names is Sony Ericsson (or Sony, as it will soon be known), but not being merely content with just confirming that the update is coming, it's taken things a step further and revealed exactly when each Xperia handset will be getting the new OS.

The news comes via a post on the Sony Ericsson blog, which reveals that the updates are set to start rolling out in March and April 2012, and that it'll be the newer Xperia handsets that feel the love first... the likes of the Xperia Arc S, the Xperia Neo V and Xperia Ray.

Once that's complete, the likes of the Xperia Arc, Play, Neo, Mini/Pro, Pro Active plus the non-Xperia Live with Walkman will also be bumped up to the latest Android build.

We must say that we're impressed with Sony Ericsson's efforts here. Yes, the dates in question may still be a little while away but don't forget that last week, the maker did release a demo version of ICS that could be flashed onto handsets - albeit not a fantastically fully working version. It certainly puts other manufacturers' efforts into context.
