Xperia S ICS firmwareThe Sony Xperia S Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update has just been certified by the PTCRB. The 6.1.A.0.452 software build was certified yesterday along with an earlier build (6.1.A.0.444). Whether or not this is the firmware that will roll out globally to Sony Xperia S handsets remains an unknown right now. It hopefully does mean that Sony Mobile is on track to release this within the next 10 days and hit its Q2 schedule that it promised users.

    I’m excited that ICS is almost here now for us Xperia S owners. But I’m not sure if I’m going to be brave enough to upgrade immediately. The recent software updates have made such a dramatic improvement to battery life, I don’t think it will be smart to rush into upgrading your handset to ICS.

    hadi gelsin art?k,bekliyoruz!

  • Three in sweden has gotten that that information from Sony. But they also say according to plan, and nothing changing that plan. Putting my sources here as a link. Its in swedish so use chrome that can use google translate. :-)

  • suresh

    then why dont you roll it

  • mike

    perfectly good point!:|

  • Considering the ICS is the ‘real’ build for S, i think these 2.3 patches have just been small repairs, and the real thing has got it right long ago. But who knows…

  • DragonClaw

    Joke? After the ICS update, Xperia S will be one of the best software optimized phones out there.
    Okay, SIII has super huge quad core processors, which can eat juice like a mad guy, and has an awesomely big touchscreen, a closer look at which shows you bare pixels. [LOL :P, that was a better joke right?]
    But ever seen the software that SIII runs? It’s so poor. The icons are so cheap and third class. It’s always been like that for Samsung.

    You do not believe me? See at Samsung SII or SIII forums in XDA. The developers are dying to make ROMs which look like HTC Sense or Xperia Timescape for them.
    I sound like a fan boy? Oh no, I myself flashed the Xperia and HTC ROMs to many Samsung devices.

    Time for rejoicing is at hand, no more weeping and wailing.

  • Serdar Aytamaner

    I’m very happy with the way my Xperia S works with Gingerbread and I don’t want to ruin it, so I’m definitely going to wait for a couple of days for early adopters’ comments.

  • Goodbye SONY

    Too late lol, i’m jumping back to samsung soon :3

  • Iqbalimovic

    When Xperia P get ICS?

  • AsadMulla

    I think, taking into consideration the amount of time sony has taken to give us ICS its gonna be perfect. its not one of those samsung rush jobs

  • Jiakushi

    AHHHHH!!!!! AT LAST!!!

  • AlexBurnout

  • loms

  • XperiaJunkie85

  • nSky

    I’m expecting ICS for my SXS will be super but just to be safe I’ll wait for user reviews before I upgrade. I do hope we get the update before July. :P

  • Goodbye SONY

    Just saying~ :D

  • Mm… strange how 2 Sweden kan have w25 then? Wondering wich 3 operator that is corrext now. lol

  • blackhats

    I don’t know why but some other brand users (maybe Sammy hardcore users) like to linger on this blog just to find some chance to troll.Maybe they’re just jealous of the design and features of awesome Xperia S ;)

  • Teng How Lai

    I always wonder who are the guys/which country behind that are designing the software for Xperia?

  • aries

    It is a joke in a such a way that…when Sony X S upgrades…Samsung will be dead envious.

  • almightybong

    Well, I think you can say that on a Samsung forum.

  • come on s3 has got great` processor power cool features like smart stay and pop up video does xperia s has any kind of this feature which samsung s3 does not have??
