Sony promises Android Jelly Bean update will come Q1 of 2013 for newer devices, no Jelly Bean updates for 2011 Xperia devices


Alright Xperia owners, we got good news and bad news. The good news: owners of newer Xperia devices should be getting their Jelly Bean updates next year. Specifically, if you’re the owner of an Xperia T, TX and V, congratulations – you’re getting your Jelly Bean update on the 1st quarter of 2013. Older Xperia models like the Xperia S, acro S, ion, Xperia P, Go and J will be getting their upgrades later in 2013, though the company hasn’t really specified when. Now, the bad news – if you’re an owner of an Xperia phone that was released during 2011 – tough luck. You won’t be getting an upgrade to Jelly Bean as Sony will only be supporting upgrades till Ice Cream Sandwich. For some reason or other, Sony has decided not to give their 2011 devices the bump to Jelly Bean, which is a bit of a downer, especially if you were looking to get your Project Butter on. Sorry guys – that’s just them breaks.
