Sony “actively investigating” Android 4.1 for all devices

29

Sony, doing a bit of damage control, has taken to their blog to clear the air as it pertains to an Android 4.1 update for their 2011 Xperia lineup.  The last we had heard, Sony was not expecting to put Jelly Bean on their smartphones from last year and that the door had closed for future updates.  Not so fast.

…During a Q&A session last week on our Sony Mobile GB Facebook page, a local spokesperson gave information out in error on our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software development and rollout for 2011 Xperia smartphones. We are actively investigating Android OS upgrades for all devices, but in the meantime, our Ice Cream Sandwich rollout for Xperia S and 2011 Xperia smartphones continues as planned…

Sony advises that we’ll hear more when the time is right and that we can expect news on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates currently hitting models.

Considering we’re hitting that point where some of the 2011 models are a year and a half old, consumers may start to look to a new smartphone.  Would you hold onto your Xperia PLAY or Xperia arc in hopes of Android 4.1?
