Android 4.0 comes to Sony Xperia mini

Android 4.0 comes to Sony Xperia mini
Sony has promised that all of its 2011 handsets would be updated to Android 4.0. For examole, early last month the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro was updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. With that in mind, the next stop on the Ice Cream Sandwich tour is the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini. This is not your easy and intuitive OTA update. First, to see if your device is ready to go through the process, you look for the 8 digit Sales Item number (SI) number under the battery. See if it matches with the list of SI numbers from Sony's website. You can do that by clicking on the sourcelink. If the SI from your phone does appear on the list, you can use PC Companion or Bridge for Mac to connect with your PC and load up the update.

If you don't remember too much about the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini, it had a 3 inch screen with resolution of 320 x 480 and pixel resolution of 192ppi. A single-core 1GHz processor is under the hood while 512MB of RAM is on board. A 32GB capacity microSD cardis available  and the rear-facing 5MP camera has AF and LED flash. Video can be captured in 720p. As such, Sony says it is the smallest device in the world can that record HD video.
