When Sony Mobile first gave details on its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update plans for its Xperia range, there was some frustration that its 2012 flagship, the Xperia S, would not receive the ICS update until “the later part of the second quarter”. Then, around 10 days ago a support person (Marcus) over at the Talk Sony Mobile forums pointed to a late May/early June release for the Xperia S ICS update.
Unfortunately it now looks like we are back to the original timescale, as Marcus confirms that he “mixed things up”. The Sony Xperia S will receive the update during latter part of Q2, which probably points to a late June release. Before anyone lets of steam in the comments that the update has been delayed and Sony sucks etc, it is worth reminding people that the late Q2 timescale was always the one communicated. It is just unfortunate that a support person gave us all hope that it may come earlier, but it is an honest mistake anyone can make.
