Xperia FacebookWe’ve been speculating recently as to when Sony Ericsson Xperia arc and Xperia PLAY users will get the update to Android 2.3.3. Well Recombu are reporting that the new Xperia range is set to receive the Android 2.3.4 update (currently only on Nexus S handsets) next week.

Not only that but Facebook integration that we’ve already discussed is set to be included too. The good news is that there will be customisation options regarding which Facebook features you end up enabling. Other changes are not known, but lets hope it fixes the audio sync/freeze video recording issues along with the random reboot problem that some are suffering from.

Update: Recombu has updated their post to say that Android 2.3.3 is due next week and not Android 2.3.4.

    I agree. Great support from SE. It looks like we can look forward to regular updates from now on which is just excellent.

  • Asad

     Yep when I tell people SE X10 is getting 2.3 they say I will believe it when I see it. Well keep your eyes open mate because its gonna slap you in the face.

     just looked at the Recombu post, and it has been corrected to 2.3.3

  • Dubaiboy

     great news!

  • we probably dont really need the 2.3.4 update that much.. as the main feature with thayt update is the  google video chat.. and as the arc doesnt have a front facing camera.. it wouldnt be much use!!

    Hope it resolves the screen flickering problem.It’s very irritating

  • RULE

    Still the audio chat would be a nice feature :-) 

  • Anonymous

    It would be nice to get 2.3.4 though

    I’m looking forward to Google video chat on my Neo

  •  Any list/changelog for the update?

  • Pdy_mssindia

     I installed Brightness Level 2.2  and it stopped the flickering. You can set it either at 50% or 75% or even 25% and since then, no flickering at all!
