Given the shear breadth of Sony Xperia handsets on the market right now, new firmware for these devices are certified all the time. We thought we’d round up all of the latest firmware that has been certified recently and that could hit handsets soon. First of all, the Sony Xperia S has a new firmware version (6.1.A.0.454), although this is likely to be a minor bug-fix release over the existing 6.1.A.0.452 ICS firmware.
The LT28i version of the Xperia ion, has seen its first Android 4.0.4 ICS firmware certified in the form of 6.1.E.0.211. The LT28h version of the Xperia ion is already on ICS, whilst the AT&T version (LT28at) ICS firmware was certified recently.
Moving on to the Sony Xperia acro S, the first certified firmware has hit the PTCRB. Firmware version 6.1.A.1.58, highlights that the handset will launch with ICS, denoted by the 6.1.X.X.XX in the version number.
Lastly, the four Sony Xperia handsets running the U8500 NovaThor chipset, the Xperia go, Xperia P, Xperia sola and Xperia U have all seen a new firmware version certified – 6.0.B.3.177. This is Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread firmware, so you’ll have to wait a bit longer for ICS unfortunately.
