Sony’s steadfast on keeping their promise of upgrading most 2011 phones and tablets to Ice Cream Sandwich, and three more devices have been added to the list.
The OEM announced that the Sony Xperia Go, Xperia U, and Xperia Sola will all be geting the OTA starting today and, of course, only unlocked versions are guaranteed the upgrade right away. Those on carrier-branded devices will have to wait a little longer, but the wait is never usually long.
Alongside the general benefits of Ice Cream Sandwich you can look forward to a new media playing experience, an improved lock screen, an “extended standby mode” to increase standby time by four times, and more. Also, specially for the Sola is “Glove Mode,” a new mode for the device’s floating touch feature that will now work while users are wearing gloves.
This site will have everything you need as far as downloads go, and while not everyone will be able to find it right away Sony says the rollout will be in full swing in the middle of next week. Click here for more info.
