    Every time my wife keeps buying a Sony Xperia phone (X10 Mini pro, Xperia Pro, Xperia Mini Pro and now the Xperia U) they keep doing this, she’s only had it 3 months and now I have to tell her she’s got a dead phone as Sony will not update it, the same as all the others she’s had.
    Goodbye Sony, for good, you’ve let people down too many times now.
