Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich is now rolling out on the rest of the Sony Xperia handsets running the NovaThor U8500 platform. The Sony Xperia go, Xperia sola and Xperia U are starting to receive the ICS update as we speak. As usual, Sony says that the rollout will continue over the next few weeks in markets globally.
The update will include Sony’s new media applications (Walkman, Album and Movies), extended standby mode, resizable widgets, better data consumption controls and recent apps. The Xperia sola will also get a special feature all of its own called “glove mode”. This enables you to use your handset in the cold with gloves on. Sounds neat.
You will be able to see which software kits have been made available on the Sony Mobile Community website in the middle of next week. These will show which countries and carriers have received the update. As with previous ICS updates for other handsets, you will need to update using PC Companion or the Sony Mobile Update Service using your PC or Mac.
