Sony Mobile has just confirmed that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update has started to roll out for three of its 2011 Xperia handsets (Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray). The update is available as we speak for consumers in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Norway. Other markets will see the update become available over the next 4-6 weeks.
You need to keep an eye on this Sony Mobile forum thread where all of the kit numbers that receive the update will be posted. You can find your kit number by accessing the service menu on your handset (type *#*#7378423#*#*). Then hit Service info > Software info and look for the ‘Customization Version’ of your Xperia. This update will only take place via your PC or Mac, so there will be no OTA option.
The rest of the Xperia line-up including the Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman will start to receive the ICS update from late May/early June as per the previous schedule.
