Sony Ericsson dates ICS update for select models

Sony Ericsson has become the latest hardware maker to put provide detailed behind plans for an Android 4.0 update across select products.  Specifically, the company has outlined the starting time frame for Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for the 2011 Xperia line.  Essentially the newer models will see the update first, followed by the older devices a few weeks later.

We’re happy to confirm that the first 2011 Xperia smartphones will be upgraded to Android 4.0 starting from end March/early April 2012. The first smartphones to get the upgrade are Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray. Soon after, starting from end April/early May, Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini and mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active as well as Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will get their upgrades.

Although Sony Ericsson hasn’t made themselves a major presence in the United States thus far there are some of you who have purchased unlocked models.  There are also those of you with the Xperia PLAY, either through Verizon or AT&T.  Looking ahead we expect to see a singular Sony brand attack the U.S. with more force than we’ve seen thus far.

It’s reassuring to see the handset maker providing clearer details for current models, something that puts us at ease for 2012.  If they can keep pace with HTC, Samsung, Motorola, and others, then we see Sony doing pretty good for themselves in the near year.

LiveBlogging Verizon’s 4G LTE Announcement

We’ve long wanted to liveblog Android-related events here on AndroidGuys but had not come across any tools practical enough to try out. A few weeks back we came across a Wordpress plugin that we think will do the trick. We’ve been waiting patiently to kick the tires on this thing so what better way than to do a dry run with Verizon’s LTE announcement?
