Sony provides updates on Xperia Jelly Bean plans; some phones not invited to party


Our friends at Sony have taken the time to update the masses on its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean rollout plans for the foreseeable future. For starters, they’ve confirmed that the Xperia T, Xperia V and Xperia TX’s upgrades will go out as planned throughout the months of February and March. The Xperia P, Xperia J and Xperia Go will all be getting their upgrades from the end of March. The Sony Xperia Acro S, Xperia S, Xperia SL and Xperia ion will follow along “in the subsequent weeks.”

These days may be a bit of ways to way, but the important thing to remember is that Sony’s still thinking about you and that you’ll be upgraded to at least one form of Jelly Bean at some point. Folks with some of Sony’s other devices aren’t so lucky as the manufacturer has confirmed that some devices would be left out of the upgrade plans.

These devices include the Sony Xperia U, Xperia miro, Xperia tipo and the Xperia sola. And note that they aren’t saying they don’t know if they’ll upgrade these phones to Jelly Bean yet — Sony has expressly confirmed that they will not go beyond Ice Cream Sandwich in the way of major, non-critical upgrades.

You’ll need to look toward Android’s great development community to see if you can get your device going on the latest and greatest Android has to offer, but as most of these aren’t Sony’s most popular devices it may be a tough task to tackle. Be sure to look into that on Google at your earliest convenience.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
