Good news, Sony Mobile has commenced the Android 4.0.4 update for the Xperia S. The update brings amongst other things a new lock screen with improved functionality (this has its own settings menu), resizable widgets, better mobile data control and a recent apps button. The 200MB update will be available via the PC/Mac or OTA. The video below shows what Xperia S users can expect in the update and we’ve attached another video that shows how to update to Android 4.0.4.

Along with the update, Sony has, as expected, announced new media applications including the “WALKMAN”, “Album” and “Movies” apps. The WALKMAN app replaces the ‘Music Player’ app and includes the equaliser along with social features allowing you to share favourite content information with your friends. The Album app is the new gallery and this is one we’ve been looking forward to for some time, it has a new UI allowing you to browse through your media much faster. The Movies app has an intelligent database that grabs relevant information of the media you are watching.

As with other Xperia ICS updates, the update will roll out gradually. You can see if your SI number has been updated to ICS here.
