Sony Targets Mid-April for First Xperia ICS Updates

Sony’s bringing the sweet taste of Ice Cream Sandwich to all their 2011 phones, and it seems we’ll have to wait just a tad longer. It’s only a two week wait (give or take a few days) because they’ve now pegged mid-April for the first set of rollouts. Of course, we imagine the unlocked and unbranded versions will get the upgrades right away, but carrier-specific versions will depend on each specific carrier.

Most European and Canadian carriers tend to get the update out rather quickly, while it may be a more tough wait here in the United States. The roll-out period will stretch 4-6 weeks so if you have an eligible handset and you don’t get the update right away, be cool and be patient – it’ll get there eventually.

      I actually love the xperia play. that may be a testament to how little I know about phones but I have a blast with it. I sell every att phone but we have an old demo that belongs to the store now that I play constantly when I am slow.
      but as far as just a sony smartphone without the gaming pad, you are right no one ever talks about them>

    What about the Tablet S? Did I miss something? Well I’m going to buy the new Transformer anyways. This is  just more emphasis on changing over to Asus.
