Xperia S Jelly Bean update will land from the end of May; same for Xperia ion, acro S and SL
Sony Mobile has just confirmed that the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S will commence from the end of May.
The delay doesn’t surprise us given the tweet sent about by Sony Mobile last week. However, given recent rumours pointing to an imminent release, the news news is likely to disappoint many.
Whilst we’d much prefer to wait for a bug-free update than for the company to rush out the update, the perception this delay sends out on Sony’s update policy will only cause harm. All owners can hope for now is that when the update does eventually come it has been treated with the extra polish that the owners deserve.
