Sony quietly removes Xperia PLAY from ICS update list

25 May, 2012

Xperia PLAY users waiting for the Android 4.0 update, we have some bad news for you. It seems that Sony won't be updating the ill-fated device to the latest version of Android.

Back in December last year when Sony (then Sony Ericsson) released the Android 4.0 update roadmap, the Xperia PLAY was part of the list of devices mentioned. However, the latest list put up on the Sony Mobile website does not mention the Xperia PLAY anywhere. Instead we can only see the following handsets.

We have always been disappointed with the way Sony Ericsson handled the Xperia PLAY. The phone definitely had great potential but was marred by mediocre specs and performance and now it won't even be getting the Android 4.0 update. Hopefully Sony will some day launch a true PlayStation phone, the kind that the world has been waiting for a long time.
