Ice Cream Sandwich for Sony Ericsson XPERIA handsets delayed until mid-April

If you own a Sony Ericsson XPERIA handset, you may be wondering when the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update will be rolling out to your phone. Sadly, Sony announced that the ICS update for its XPERIA range will be delayed until mid-April instead of March. Some handsets will not receive the update until summer.

The ICS update will first roll out to the Arc S, Neo V, and Ray in mid-April. The update will roll out from four to six weeks. This means that your phone may receive the update from mid-April to June.

The next phones to receive the update will be the Arc, Play, Neo, Mini Pro, Active, and Live with Walkman. The update will roll out to these phones towards the end of May or early in June. It too will roll out to the handsets in a span of four to six weeks.

The update will not be released OTA (over the air). Instead, Sony will be rolling out the ICS update via PC Companion or Bridge for Mac. Furthermore, your phone will not receive a notification one the update is ready. This means you’ll have to constantly check manually for the update.
