Let’s speculate: Which Sony Xperia devices will get Lollipop?

by XB on 15th October 2014

in Android


LollipopGoogle officially unveiled the latest major Android release in the form of Android 5.0 Lollipop earlier today. Alongside this news, Google also announced two new Nexus smartphones: the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 (details below) which will be loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop on release.

The company also confirmed that Lollipop will also be available on older Nexus 4, 5, 7, 10 and Google Play edition devices in the coming weeks. Other manufacturers have also announced Lollipop plans for their devices such as Motorola who says that it will bring this upgrade to “Moto X (1st and 2nd Gen), Moto G (1st and 2nd Gen), Moto G with 4G LTE, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini.

Sony is always late to the party in announcing official plans for new Android releases. However, do not expect it to land in 2014. In terms of devices to see the upgrade, the Xperia Z3 series is a dead cert, along with the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet. We would also expect to see the Xperia Z1, Z1 Compact to be upgraded.

The biggest question mark in our eyes surrounds the older Xperia Z devices (Xperia Z, ZL, ZR, Tablet Z), along with some of the lower/mid-range devices released over the last 18 months. Anyway, knowing Sony’s history in this area, which handsets do you think will be upgraded? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.

Nexus 6

The Nexus 6 (built by Motorola) has a contoured aluminium frame, a 5.96-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display with 493 PPI pixel density, stereo speakers, a 13 megapixel camera with f2.0 lens, 2MP front-facing camera, 3GB RAM and 3220mAh battery. It will be powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 420 graphics (Qualcomm Snapdragon 805) and 3GB. Storage will come in 32GB and 64GB variants. The Nexus 6 will be available for pre-order in late October and in US stores in November.

Nexus 9

The Nexus 9 (built by HTC) has an 8.9-inch IPS screen with 4:3 aspect ratio and QXGA resolution (2048 x 1536). The tablet is powered by a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 2GB RAM and comes in 16GB and 32GB variants. Other features include 6700 mAh, 8MP rear camera (f/2.4), 1.6MP front-facing camera (f/2.4) and dual front-facing speakers with HTC BoomSound. Pre-orders for the Nexus 9 will start on October 17 and in stores starting November 3.

    My guess:
    Certain: Z3, Z3c, Z3tc, Z2, Z2 Tablet, Z1, Z1c, Z Ultra, T2 Ultra, C3 and E3 will have 5.0.
    By a miracle: Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z.
    No chance: any other device left

  • Kacho_ON

    Sigh, just get stock Android on it. Would be a great differentiation from Touchwiz, Sense and whatever the hell LG does.

    Sony keeping their weird 2009 UX overlay makes it difficult for me to buy a Sony device.

  • Jim P

    There is no way the Original Z series to receive Lolipop (XZ & XTZ user)

  • i love SONY ?

    What about Xperia Z Ultra ?

  • Lukáš Pávl

    How about Z Ultra? If i’m not wrong IT has same HW as Z1. So It’s possible to get L too for ZU.

  • Jacky

    are we gonna hear complains from xperia SP users?

  • CopperStew

    Well, I don’t think that the Z or the Z1 will see any Lolipop

  • Niclas

    I think z z1 z2 vill get a5.0:-)

  • Adrian969

    Z1 has Snabdragon 800. Almoste same in Z2-Z3. Z1 will probably get L if they do it for Z2. Z could be without L but I guess it is quite easy for Sony to make their version work on Z. So I think that Z gets L too…

  • Andreas

    Just bring us a 4K tablet, and I’ll give my Tablet Z away – you have until February, Sony!

  • Michael Hofmann

    The Z1 should get Lolipop, and definetly the Z1 compact which is still less than a year old.

  • CopperStew

    As an owner of Z, I really hope that it will get L and not when announcing the
    next android Version

  • Doubleyoupee

    Only chance for Z is that Nexus 4 is getting it and it has Snapdragon S4 Pro

  • SadSPUser

    Xperia SP will certainly get it.

  • Zino

    I agree, sony is really shooting itself in the foot with its ui. I would buy a sony device everytime if it wasnt for the ui.

  • Okazuma

    Z3 series, Z2 series and Z1 series for sure
    T2 Ultra and M2/M2 aqua maybe
    First Z series will be not upgrade, i’m sure and sorry

  • Tibor Molnár

    i would hope that M2 will get it, but i am afraid thats wishful thinking. i think i am ending with xperia phones…

  • rzero21

    Why would you need a 4K display in a tablet If I may ask?

  • Makiz

    Nexus 6… the Z3 killer?

  • Perhaps through the developer community we’ll see Lollipop arrive on the original Z series.

  • Jaissal S

    I can’t wait to see how Sony shows us how they will provide us with a great Lollipop experience! I am sure my Xperia Z1 will get the update. I’m sure it’ll be by February or so. I love how simple Sony’s Android UI looks and feels compared to others like Samsung. Hmm I can see that the Xperia Z may not get the update. That’s a guess. Love Sony!

  • dimz

    Tbh, Sony’s UX is one of the reasons I ended up buying an Xperia last year, the other being 4G, 8mp camera & FM Radio. I like how they’ve incorporated familiar icons and design from their other consumer electronics and they aren’t as bloated as a Samsung. That said, I don’t like the new huge quick settings or the fact they’ve removed ART in their Kitkat firmwares.

  • wared

    Guys Facebook in my z1 is not giving me notification and notifications are enabled, I tried everything possible, I reinstall the app and disabled Facebook apps, no thing works and this is happening only in my account while in other accounts notification are working, what can I do?

  • Kaloyan Stoychev

    I really hope the Tablet Z is going to receive it, but I’m very doubtful.

    At least I’ll enjoy it on my Z2…

  • MXNB

    Nexus 4 have almost the same specs as the Xperia Z. But i don’t think Sony will do anything good for this line.

  • Jesús López Sotelo

    Where’s my Xperia S kitkat?! *rumbles to the sky*

  • Ambroos

    You can already see on the Z3 that the UI is being toned down and brought in line with the rest of Android. I’m guessing here but I expect a clean and lean Android L update happening for Z2 and Z3 surprisingly soon.

  • Felipe Pimenta

    Imagine if we woke tomorrow to the news: “Every flagship that have a Sony logo on it will have the Lollipop update, with all the perks that their hardware can handle”

  • Eddy Eddy R

    really hope that Xperia ZL is going to receive it,
    ZL please……

  • Alex Baloch

    If the older Nexus devices from 2012, Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One M7 and LG G2 are getting it, I dont see why the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR shouldn’t get it. They are great phones capable of using Android L, and hopefully we will see it.

  • Makozak

    Yeah, my Xperia T is still on 4.3, so i think the miracle will be on the T, TX, V, SP
    And i think the 2012 Z serie is 60% sure to have it, do worry ;)

  • Deki

    Where is Lollipop for my Xperia S? :-)

  • Battal Aljadei

    None, because Sony marketing department will force the opinion to use it as a marketing advertising goal for the upcoming Xperia flagship Mars/2015, Surprise New device with new OS .

  • Nick

    Man after all this years, I’m leaving sony just because of this nexus damn 6!

  • Abdullah Robben

    please tell me that Sony ericsson Vivaz will get android 5.0 because i have one

  • Danny

    Now to decide whether to get the Nexus 9 or Z3 Tablet Compact

  • Jay

    The back of the Nexus 6 looks ugly!

  • Jam Chua

    im sure all z series will receive them… including my zl…

  • SpWithCM

    via CM12 of course.

  • Alter

    ofcourse Z4

  • Bugperia

    What is there to complain about? Though I’ll never forget what sony did, they went after the power ring I’ll be watching with joy while they are sinking and burning.

  • Geoffxx

    It really doesn’t matter about L until there is an easy root method, 4.4.4 is stable enough on my Z1 and easily rooted, I am not going back to losing unhindered access to my 64gb sd card with a new version of android – google and Sony should be thinking hard about this sd restriction and how it affected people, I never saw a need to root my phone until KK

  • matticitt

    Nexus 4 is going to get it – XZ, ZL, ZU and Tablet Z should also get it. If Sony really stops support for those devices after just 18 months… – that’s just terrible for business. They’re struggling with their mobile division – showing some good will with those updates would help them.

  • Shaktimaan

    Yeah XSP will surely get it, that’s why they left us at 4.3 and didn’t give kitkat.We’re skipping kitkat altogether….straight to LOLlipop :p

    Ahem…the update will be via xda though ;)

  • Danny

    didn’t Google said that the Android L would work on all devices? They may or may not mean the older Android devices, but I’m hoping at least the Xperia T, TX, L, M, and possibly SP may get it, even if not official Sony upgrades, but maybe bug-free, or little bug as possible, Custom ROMs.
    I, myself have Z, Z1s, Z Ultra, Z1 Compact and will buy the Z3/Z3 Compact, while not in my possession, is nearby.

    btw, I always thought the Android L was a alternative android OS from Official Google Android OS that they’re trying out.
    Also, they brought in some major players in the Custom, hacked or modified Android world to help with the Android L project, maybe it is more user friendly to those who do custom rom…?

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I’m pretty sure Z series will receive 5.0, as a matter of fact 18 months isn’t over and there’s no any excuses like oh the SoC is old, and they mentioned they’re prioritizing flagship devices.if nexus 7 2012 can receive simply Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Z Tab can receive.

  • Felipe Pimenta

    The 18 month is over: March 2013 to October 2014.

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Haha you’re right but still we should be getting it,I know that we received hella amount of updates, but this is really ground breaking, I mean they didn’t wanna update SP and if they do the same with Z, that’s really sad and disappointing cause their excuse was SP was a mid range and they wanted to focus on high end, so I’m having my positive thoughts towards that Z is one badass phone to receive the sweeeet L. :-D

  • sacrow

    I do believe that Z series can receive it, the question is will sony give it?

  • jay

    SP shud get L as its a worthy device. Sony must think about SP as there are considerable number of users of this device. We pin our hopes with this last update for us.

  • InspectorGadget80

    z1 Z2 Z3, COMPACT SERIES, tablet series. that’s bout it.

  • bao trung giang

    Can’t wait to see android l on my z1!!!

  • Froyo Radeon

    Just like why there are 2K display in a phone :D

  • akizora980

    Xperia ZUltra upgrade To Lollipop plz ||||´???)

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    Holycrap! That means my Sony ericsson K850 will get it too! Yay.

  • Prasanth Namboothiri

    Am using E3. Running on 4.4.2. In 9 months it will get 4.4.3 after another 9 months it will get 4.4.4 and the update cycle ended game over for E3 users

  • Rifqi Al Fariz

    Then I will start to believe human.
    #jump from mars to the earth

  • Prasanth Namboothiri

    Am using E3. Running on 4.4.2. In 9 months it will get 4.4.3 after another 9 months it will get 4.4.4 and the update cycle ended game over for E3 users….

  • Siyam Hossain

    Did you forget to mention xperia z ultra?

  • Reza

    I’m pretty sure that the Z, ZL, ZR and tablet z are gonna get the lollipop whic will be as the final software that Sony brings, let’s see..

  • xperiaDROID

    The Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z will get the Lollipop that’s for sure, there’s no reason for Sony to not give Lollipop to the older Z series. They’re still capable to handle Lollipop, just look at the Nexus 4. Plus, the older Z series are the ones that made Sony well-known right now, Sony would be nothing except for the Playstation, Bravia, and Walkman if it there’s no Xperia Z as their journey to keep the Xperia moving on.

    Also, since you’re focusing more on your high end devices now, you should also love your high end devices more than other manufacturers, and if possible, you can share some love to the lower end devices as well. You know, if you treat your devices well, we Xperia owners will be happy to support Sony as well. Enough with the 18 months update support bullshit, that’s old already, HTC promised to provide software updates to their flagship for two years. If HTC can do it, why not Sony?

    So, all in all, the Xperia Z, ZL, ZR and Tablet Z must get the Lollipop. If my Z gets Lollipop, I will like Sony even more, and if it don’t, I won’t blame Sony and will thank Sony for the helluva Android updates that has been provided to my phone. But for sure though, this will lead Sony to embarrassment if they don’t update their 2013 flagships since other manufacturers will update theirs to Lollipop.

  • xperiaDROID

    Xperia Z series was born in 2013, not 2012. But I agree with you. Believe.

  • xperiaDROID

    Xperia E3 has Snapdragon 400 and it’s capable to handle 5.0, same as the Xperia E1 that has Snapdragon 200 . How do I know? Well, because of Motorola. It’s up to Sony to whether update it or not.

  • xperiaDROID

    They will, if they learned their lesson. Their mobile devices sales are falling already, don’t tell me that they’re not afraid of it since update support is one of the reasons that made their mobile devices sales drop.

  • Nawi

    All Xperia Z Series High-End (Out Xperia ZR)

  • xperiaDROID

    LOL…wut? Aside from the screen size and IP rating, the ZR has the same specs as the Z, ZL and Tablet Z.

  • Nawi

    Google says that every time xD (JB 4,1-4,2-,4.3, KitKat, L)

  • Nawi

    Maybe because is more cheaper than Z, ZL and Tablet Z :/

  • Robert Terry

    I just hope my Z1s gets it.

  • mrjraider

    I love to see the Xperia ZL, Z, ZR and tablet Z users in waiting and believing Lolipop comes to their device.. Don’t worry guys you wont get it…

    WELCOME TO THE EXPERIENCE OF THE SONY XPERIA SP!

    Promises and more promises and nothing more!

  • Kater

    Getting the update of android 5.0?
    undoubtedly: Z3 series, Z2 series, Z1 series
    still under mystery but with low possibility: those who use APQ8064
    Z series are old, although they would benefit a lot by the new ART mechanism

  • Chris

    What about my P900? Even it’s old and a UIQ device, I want an update too! Righjt? All SP users?

  • mrnino

    Sony is always late. Looks like it’s retarded :D

  • ????????? ???????????????

    … that would be a motivation to *not* update earlier models, actually. By only supporting more recent models they save money (which they don’t have a lot of, since sales have failed the predictions) and moreover they force you to buy a new phone if you want android 5.

  • mrnino

    They haven’t learned anything. Look what happened wit xperia sp and kitkat.

  • ????????? ???????????????

    kitkat is available even on the even older xperia ARC… not officially, but it goes to show that more often than not, the “hardware is slow” excuse is just an excuse.

  • ville672

    How about Xperia S? Lol joking. I wanna get rid of this fossile. :D

  • ABCDE

    U r so funny :)

  • Nawi

    Promises? Where?
    I don’t reed “under investigation”. Don’t troll

  • Nawi

    Yes. And SE Xperia X8, SE Xperia X10, SE Xperia Neo V, ST-E Xperia U, ST-E Xperia P and ST-E Xperia S will get Android L too =)

  • Sam

    In midrange might be E3 will get lolipop and from that straight way z1 and above all devices will get lolipop.

  • firos

    What about T3?

  • rus_media

    Sony will definitely struggle with the Lollipop in whole 2015. They will release buggy software. Customers will remain angry. In the mean time, they will release Z4 and Z5 series. And they will concentrate on those new flagships. So don’t keep a good hope on them :)

  • TimmY

    Good decision to drop my Xperia T for a Z3C. Come come, Lollipop! :D

  • b6

    there’s a lot of what I feel is wishful thinking, here. It should be expected the Z3 will get lollipop (… and it’ll get it late), but everything else, I wouldn’t be too sure. The Z1 family? Quite possibly not. Z2 – if it gets it, it’ll be very late.

  • dimz

    “Under investigation” is Sony speak for “yeah, right, you really thought you’d actually get it?”. It’s the label they put on the trash bin they have for upgrade plans that require them to do extra effort, high end or not.

  • harsha

    Is it correct t2 ultra get android 5 update

  • Yogesh Marwaha

    Z3, Z3c, Z3tc, Z2, Z2 Tablet will get 5.0 by April/May 2015 B-)

  • János Jenei

    Xperia M ?

  • arcu de triumf

    I wouldn’t keep my hopes up. Normally all Xperias should but they can’t do that. Maybe, I say maybe the next models 2015.

  • inspire

    Neither did you. The problem lies with the chip set, not with Sony (in case of sp)

  • Emil Oskarsson

    If Sony want to be big in mobile business they have to upgrade all the older Z models to android 5.0, since they can handle the system without any problems, android 5.0 runs better then kitkat right?

  • animesh

    there is no excuse for them other than the “EOL” for the Z series, and if they are really going into that, then the zr is was released in june 2013 so it should be supported till atleast december 2014

  • mrnino

    cyanogenmod works and sonys not? but its not about updates only. sony is to slow with sharing new info and updating its official page. and sony support doesnt know anything. so leaks are “only” sources of info, too sad :D

  • mrnino

    and btw kitkat has been launched before xperia sp. so why they even write kitkat as next version, they have to known that

  • P990i FTW! :-)

  • xperiax10.awesome

    definitely you will get it, hence the name Lollipop :P

  • Akshay Ballal

    Xperia Z will go EOL after receiving 5.0… Please Sony keep this word!!!

  • Alexey, a former SP user

    I believe only Z3 and possibly Z2 series will get Android L.
    I will be surprised in case Z/Z1 series will get any updates.

    I moved to Windows Phone because got tired of Android devices and their support. It is always something broken (power drains, not working features, etc.). Manufacturers are pushing to buy new flagship device instead of providing support of already existing devices.
    Hope Windows Phone will be better in support.

  • roeshak

    Sorry but the only dead certainties for the Latest update are the 2014 flashship devices. Going by Sony’s history and track record, all older devices are up for the chop!
    We’ve seen a lot of update based sagas over the years with Sony starting with the x10 debacle, then xperia play, then S, then SP to name a few.
    There’s every chance xperia z1, z ultra, z1c users are next in line for drama. For Sony android L is a 2015 enterprise. I don’t think the update will roll out to any of this year’s flashships until late March at best. That pretty much rules out the original Z as that’s well passed the 18 month Google support promise. The Z would be over two years old then. Also, by the time Sony’s done updating z3 and z2 series, it’ll be past May and even possibly June and by then the z1 series would also be past their support cycle.
    Seriously, I wouldn’t wager anything on devices older than z2 series getting android L officially from Sony. The 6 month cycle is about to show it’s very ugly side again I fear!

  • roeshak

    How long have you been a Sony user. Can’t be that long if you truly believe all those devices are going to receive android L officially lol

  • xperia zr

    please make android 5 for xperia zr
    please
    please

  • xperia zr

    xperia zr please

  • ali

    xperia zr have good hardware and i think it can have android 5.0

  • Jachym Kokesh Lukes

    you can update to CM when it gets 5.0 anytime I guess.

  • Motorola comes up with yet another beauty <3

    http://smartphonetechie.com/google-nexus-6-winner/

  • Jack

    Since when has Sony updated a device beyond the 18 month mark!? Never, I believe and this time will not be any different! They have too much software to update and not enough money to do it!

  • hocestquisumus

    Most smartphone buyers don’t even know what their OS is and even less that ‘updates’ even exist. They point at something in the store that’s pretty and within their price range and that’s it.

  • hocestquisumus

    Well, at least the flagship models should all get it easily, including the original Z. Sony churns out Zs so quickly they are hardly much different anyway.

    As for the other models… well… they’ll probably get Lollipop around the time Android M Mozartkugel comes out.

  • Jack

    THEY DON’T HAVE THE MONEY AND THEY HAVE TOO MUCH BLOATWARE TO UPDATE! SO, NO UNFORTUNATELY! Next update, Z1 series will be getting dropped from the update list…

  • Really Disappointed!
  • Mujeeb Ahmad

    You can safely remove the *Perhaps* from your statement. Its just a matter of time before Android L builds start showing up for Z on xda.

  • Jumbo

    Lollipop sounds so nasty and dirty… Mmmmm…. 5.0 too…

  • Melmac

    What about Xperia S?!?!?! ;-P (I just couldn’t…….)

  • John Zakaria

    This is a user poll not phone arena

  • Ritwij

    Nexus 4 will be receiving it. And Xperia Z has the same SoC. Totally depends on Sony now. They can still act like a d0uche, like they did for SP.

  • Marcus Aurelius

    Since we’re speculating, I’ll just throw this out there: If Google continues to release one new version of Android every year (which I think they will, since one OS per year means more time for manufactures to catch up ergo less fragmentation in the future), then Sony’s September flagship is in trouble. Think about it, Android 5.0 is released this October, it means that the Z3 should see 5.0 by Feb-March. Z2 will be around April-May. Android 5.1 or 6.0 is expected to be released also by October 2015. That means that the Xperia Z5 should see it by Feb-March 2016 and Z4 by April-May 2016. If Sony continues on it’s 6 month cycle, then buying Sony’s flagship will only grant you at least one major update………..

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    I was about to tell that, if Google can update it why Sony can’t.

  • Jack

    Because they don’t have the money to update all their software for so many devices! Sony is broke and doesn’t have enough developers to deal with it!

  • lol

    Xperia L not getting android L

  • anunnaki

    are the notifications enabled in the facebook app (account settings/notification)?

    https://www.facebook.com/help/452400401467000/

  • János Jenei

    sony xperia M 15.4.A.1.10 Where is the update??

  • Luke

    I hope that SONY will release L very soon. Maybe as fast as 4.4.4 for ZU, Z1 etc…

  • Kabuto Kouji

    what about SP? maybe they decided to go straight to 5 yeaahhh !!! LOL!!!!

  • Seyed Ali Hosseini

    i think xperia zr should get android 5.0
    because xperia zr is a very nice mobilephone with good hardware

  • Banglore

    keep guessing guys, sony didn’t care for Xperia S and SL. They just updated only once that too to JB4.1.1 (When the whole world was moving to JB4.3). I’m not buying the sony smartphone again, switching to NEXUS 6 / NEXUS 5. If you guys concerned with android update just go for NEXUS.

  • jonyah

    If my Z2 gets it eventually, then great. There’s nothing wrong with what it has now though, and to expect something for free when it was perfectly fine when I originally bought it is just selfish. There is just way too much entitlement with everyone these days. Sure, if there’s a bug, I’d expect it to be fixed. But to expect Sony or any manufacturer to spend time and effort to upgrade every phone ever released doesn’t make sense. Especially when you consider that it could hurt sales in the long run. On the plus side though, if people know they’ll be getting free updates over time for their products then they are more likely to buy them. It’s a tough choice Sony has to make as to what they support and don’t. I’m more than fine with the 18-month rule for supported devices.

  • bangalore

    Xperia S/SL user were in the same situation as you dude. We didn’t get any update save one (even though we were in the 18months of support blanket). You see sony has one habit of forgetting (or neglecting) the old device and they don’t care for customers, they just abandon users.

  • donkey kong

    they better support Z Ultra with 5.0 since there is no ZU successor in place yet so there should be no reason not to support I would think

  • bangalore

    And also xperia S/SL…………..

  • bangalore

    They even abandon the phone with below 18 month mark, example xperia S/SL

  • RealityCheck2013

    Z1 please :P But saying that every update i have had since i got my Z1 has been disappointing really. A few new things & that is it??? That is why i won’t get excited about these updates :D

  • jgagj

    xperia z

  • azzido

    Well, to be honest I can understand SP users, the device did not get a good treatment.
    Probably that’s why Sony is failing in Mid range this year. The device was little abandoned. Android L would bring a breath of trust for mid range users.

    It’s up to Sony if the company is still interested in Mid and Low end sectors.
    They know they still can profit there (last years) if they will do good.

    No doubt they should definitely limit a number of devices they are giving to the market especially in mid / low sectors. Create 1 mid and 1 low end devices, but very good and keep it updated is a key to success. Everyone knows that invent / design / create / produce/ market a new device costs a lot of money. It is cheaper to focus on and design 1 mid range device instead of 5 of them.

    Simple.

  • azzido

    Hello Xperia Blog.
    Could you please ask Sony such a question and create a pooling with voting button for?:

    Would you consider to pay some money (let’s say 20-30$) to pay Sony to update the phone after it reaches EOL cycle?

    I mean, after 18 months Sony should ask users whether they are interested in paying some money to create and deliver the soft, create a service to allow them to pay (or integrate with PC Companion) and allow to pay for it first. In case there is enough users that are interested in and payed Sony would create it and deliver ONLY to those that paid for it, not for all. In such a case Sony would be able to calculate whether they can profit from it or not (based on money they get) If not enough people paid, Sony will give the money back.

    But you know, it’s like 30$ only, but * million users is a lot of money.
    What do you think about an idea?

    Of course what is impossible due to the hardware is impossible.
    Still for me it would be an innovation :)

    I think that both sides could benefit.
    Users to stick longer with the device and does not have to pay a lot of money for a new one while still having newer OS.
    Sony becase still making money.

    They should hire more devs and QA :)
    Once a soft is created it can be offered to the users to buy forever.
    There is only a need to create/update an application that can offer it.
    Not a big deal nowadays.

    XperiaBlog please let me know.
    Thank you.

    Well, that’s what i’m about to say earlier. With limiting the updates, they’re forcing us to buy their latest devices even our current devices are totally capable. It’s their marketing trick.
