Sony the first to announce its commitment to Android 4.3
Of course, if you've been sticking to Android for a while, you understand that despite this official confirmation, the actual roll out of 4.3 may very well be months from now. It is because of this, that Sony's affirmation that an Android 4.2 update is “well underway” is still relevant. Early August is the ballpark the Tokyo-based company is targeting, with both the Xperia ZR and the Xperia Tablet Z next in line to get the now outdated update.
Sony also blogged about the possibility of leapfrogging 4.2. altogether in favor of 4.3 for some older devices. Again, timing and exactly which devices will get this treatment is unknown, but the company has promised to keep us up to date.

Sony always gives the good updates too their new line up. They may be a bit late but they always update their devices unlike HTC.

They also said that they'll be more committed in updating their devices. Can't wait to see the improvements :D

I may have too buy the Z ULTRA when it launches in the U.S. or the rumore HONAMI with the 20MP camera.

''We’re also looking at uplifting some of our other devices running 4.1 direct to 4.3''

I love Sony. Love their call quality. Love the feel of their devices. They are among the three manufacturers I would pick if I went Android.
But.... Can we put "Xperia" to rest, please?? Done to DEATH.

Good Sony you are going better and just competing with Sammy for faster updates. Now I am thinking of buying Xperia ZR.
