I wish more phone companies would take not... Ahem LG, HTC, Samsung...

SE learned that if the deeply integrate their custom software like timescape etc... then it will be more troublesome to update.

So what they did is cut back on customizations and now you have system where SE can update a whole host of phones quickly

Thanks goodness! I thought I would have to wait until March!!
But I do hope that after this update, Sony Ericsson, I mean, Sony would still continue to release software updates beyond 4.0...

Why even bother reporting? Its over for SE or sony.
Panasonic will be the new underdog to look at.

This is really, really a good news to all of us Xperia 2011 model users. My Xperia Arc is now waiting for the new Android OS (Ice Cream Sandwich). I just hope that this news is reliable. I can't wait to see my Xperia Arc running on Ice Cream Sandwich. SE rocks!!!!!!

I dont think it will come soon... if it has to come, then it should arrive before the formal takeover by Sony...otherwise ...for every company, when there is change of management, the entire process get shaken and stirred and everything stops for a month or two.... so dont expect anything very soon...

I think you have got it wrong GSMArena. They said that they are aiming to have code completed by January, but had to legally go through extra testing procedures which would mean that users would get it in March after successful testing.

They just put up an additional post explaining the process in detail:

Sony Ericcson is really going to rock in 2012 !
Now it have really improved alot by providing many useful specs in their new phones and ofcoz they have some stunning designs rather than other phones !!!
Good Luck sony Ericsson/Sony ......

This seems way more realistic. March 2012 made absolutely no sense.
