SFR AndroidNow that the Android 2.3.4 firmware update has been released to the 2011 range of Sony Ericsson Xperia devices, the attention turns to future updates. The next release could come sooner than expected. French mobile phone company, SFR, released an Android firmware roadmap earlier on today showing that four Xperia handsets (Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia ray and Xperia mini pro) will receive the Android 2.3.5 update in November 2011.

Now this certainly would be a surprise as there’s been no official communication as to which Xperia update we’ll see next. Checking the PTCRB site shows that new Xperia arc firmware (4.0.2.A.0.42) was certified as recently as 7 October. This could be Android 2.3.5 firmware or updated Android 2.3.4 firmware that has yet to be released in most regions outside of the Nordics.

Thinking about it, Sony Ericsson has already said this v2.3.4 update won’t be released until the end of October/early November for the rest of the world. Could it be that Sony Ericsson are just moving straight to Android 2.3.5 instead? It’s all speculation for now, but we’ll come back to you when we have something concrete. See the roadmap below.
