All current-gen Sony Ericsson Xperia models will be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
All of the current generation of Sony Ericsson Xperia models including the Xperia arc and the Xperia ray will be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), a London-based representative of the Swedish-Japanese JV confirmed for SoMobile. There’s no information on when the update will arrive, but possibly it will be a bit later than the October/November time frame, when ICS is expected to make a debut, as previously SE has said that its 2011 Xperia lineup will first get bumped up to Gingerbread 2.3.4 in October.

The ICS update is expected to be a major overhaul of Android bringing a redesigned, holographic UI. Google has also confirmed that ICS will feature a “Virtual Camera Operator,” somewhat similar to Kinect in functionality as it will use face detection to figure out who is calling and adjust the video quality.

does this include the xperia x10? :DDD

Apparently not. Which is probably due to the 384Mb or Ram on the X10. Which kinda confirms my suspicion that the main specs for ICS is 1Ghz Processor and 512Mb ram. But.. you might get ICS in the form of a custom Rom. :)

Newly released Xperia PRO and Xperia Mini Pro would also be provided with the update.

Thanks. I was thinking about new models, not the old X10 mini and mini pro. I am thinking about buying Xperia Mini Pro, so I would like to see ICS on it :)

All 2011 devices running android will be updated...x10is not a 2011 device and the Walkman does not run on android. For those doubting the update speed of sony... My play came out on 2.3.2 in may.withib two months 2.3.3 is out while announcing that within three months 2.3.4 will replace it.while waiting for 2.3.4,sony has releases a huge update with nice thmms such as xloud.. They are now a company that ison track.
