Android ICS homeMost Sony Ericsson Xperia owners are eagerly anticipating the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update which will commence in March 2012 for certain handsets. We expect another big Android 2.3 Gingerbread update before ICS that will bring some new features, although timing remains unknown.

Sony Ericsson recently took the opportunity to remind users that while ICS will be a worthwhile update, there are a number of ICS features that are already part of Xperia software. This includes the ability to uninstall apps directly from the app tray, take screenshots, panoramic camera sweep, adding folders on the home screen to group apps/shortcuts as well as favourite apps that remain on all home screens.

We think that Sony Ericsson has done a good job with its software customisations and look forward to see what else they have in store. What other features would you like SE to support in future updates? Personally we’d like wider video codec support as well as native USB OTG support. What would be on your wish list? Let us know in the comments below.
