2011 Sony Xperia Handsets Begin to Receive Ice Cream Sandwich

Sony has remained true to its promise of an Ice Cream Sandwich update for its 2011 Xperia devices this spring, with the first batch of handsets receiving the long-awaited Android 4.0 software today. According to a post on Sony’s blog, first on the list are the Xperia arc S, neo V, and ray handsets, and those in the Scandinavian nations will receive it first.

Providing there are no issues with the update, it will continue to rollout to reach global markets during the next 4-6 weeks:

“The software will initially be made available for Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray for consumers in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Norway. The software roll out will continue over the next 4-6 weeks, becoming available in other global markets – we will update you here on the blog when additional markets can upgrade.”

Those with an Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, or Xperia active handset should receive the update by the end of May. However, there could be delays thanks to things like carrier testing.

Are you looking forward to Ice Cream Sandwich for your Xperia?
