Sony Xperia T Gets Official Android Jeally Bean Alpha Build


Sony has released a new ROM for developers and their Sony Xperia T smartphone, in the form of Android Jelly Bean which is an Alpha release of the software for the handset.

Sony Xperia T

We’re now making an early alpha ROM of Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) available for Xperia™ T, along with the open source archive, as a way for us to get valuable feedback from the custom ROM community (although we are not far away from the official release of JB for Xperia™ T).  Thanks to the great dialogue we have with open community developers, we see this as a great way for us to get input, and for the open developer community to get to try this alpha out hands-on.

As mentioned above, this JB alpha ROM is strictly targeting advanced developers, and it will not work for ordinary everyday usage, as it only has a limited set of features working (for example, you cannot make any phone calls). Several more legal and usage conditions apply – please see the Important information section below for more details.

You can find out more details about the Android Jelly Bean Alpha build for the Sony Xperia T over at Sony’s developer website.
