Sony starting Xperia Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade
The Ice Cream Sandwich update is not being conducted over the air, therefore, you will need to tether your device to a Mac or PC. Those with eligible handsets can head on over to http://www.sonymobile.com/update and follow the instructions to perform the upgrade.
Sony also said that Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia active, and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman owners can expect their ICS upgrades to commence at the end of May or early June.
Thanks to our readers for sending this in!

Ideally, anyone would expect an FIFO update process. This LIFO schedule just doesn't make any sense to me. I understand there is resource limitation, but it'll always be there!

I'm surprised to see they're leaving out the Xperia S in the first roll out. Is this how they treat a flagship device?

No, Sony is treating its older flagships properly unlike what Samsung has done with the original Galaxy S.

dont wait so eagerly for the update guys SONY has disappointed with this update and it dont bring anything new to the table.. and worse thing is that .. NO camera optimization means no better photos and no New music player..
just all old stuff over Gingerbread has made to work on ICS thats it.....
SONY U GONNA TAKE THIS SONY ERICSSON TOWARDS DOOM..... like the sony corp...
it was better with ericsson looking at current senario..
there may be many ppl brought Xperia 2011 line up just thinking they will get ICS with XPeria S features... but they dint... n u lost it

That's great! Sony is the first to release ICS update to their older phones. Great to see them support older devices while others don't. Others like HTC may have launched new ICS phones but they and the others like LG, Samsung, etc. choose to conveniently forget their older phones.
