Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, arc, neo and pro to get updated to Android 2.3.4 soon?
Sony's quartet of high-end Android smartphones including the Xperia arc, play, neo and pro might just have gotten updated to Android 2.3.3, but the engineers over at SE are already testing and working on delivering the latest version of Android Gingerbread, 2.3.4, according to an unspecified source quoted by SE-centric Semcblog. The update will bring bug fixes, but it will also patch some security holes and add new functionalities like Sony's audio filtering xLOUD technology to the handsets. It's expected to roll out widely in October.
The latest Gingerbread is not coming to earlier models like the X10 mini, X10 mini pro or the X8, but we already know that an unspecified version of Gingerbread is to roll out to the company's last year's flagship, the Xperia X10. It has been at the core of Sony Ericsson's problems with updates as even now it doesn't support system-wide multitasking and is stuck with an early version of the platform. But the Swedish-Japanese joint-venture seems to have learned its lessons and updates for its latest phones are arriving even before other manufacturers update their handsets.
