It looks like Sony Ericsson will be upgrading all of its new Xperia smartphones that it has released in 2011 to the next version of Google’s mobile OS, Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Sony Ericsson recently confirmed to SoMobile that all of the new Xperia smartphones that it has released in 2011 will get the Android Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, although they haven’t announced any time frame on it.
As Google announced recently that Ice Cream Sandwich will be released in either October or November, we can expect the 2011 Xperia smartphones to get the update some time after this.
