Xperia ICS updateSony Ericsson recently released the Xperia Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) alpha ROM available for public consumption. The SE developers have just published a thank you post for all of the great feedback received since the announcement and also revealed some more details on what this update will include.

Sony Ericsson plans to ship both the vanilla and SE gallery apps, so you can use whichever one you fancy. Other additions include being able to create groups in the list of contacts as well as the text swipe feature that is currently included in the Gingerbread software.

Regarding the alpha ROM, Sony Ericsson is already taking on board what has been said and some of these points are “up for consideration and prioritisation, based on parameters such as relevance, usability, workload, resources and timing.” Hopefully more details will be revealed in due course.

    Sony Ericsson keeping us updated on the ICS update makes it so much easier to wait. I’m glad and really appreciate the fact they are taking feedback and are considering what will be best for the actual UXP and not just dumping a rom on us. It gives us more confidence knowing we will end up with a rom we wanted so thank you :)

    I really commend sonyericsson and the administrators of this blog for their relentless effort in trying to establishing trust to the brand.This site is a very important source of information to me,thus as the saying is” IF THE SHEPHERD IS STUCK THE SHEEP WILL SCARTER”,that would have been the case but it did not happen. So,we are saying thank you! and well done!
