Android 4.2.2 rollout for Sony Xperia Z starts around the world (and you can get it now)
For those of you who have been waiting patiently for the Android 4.2.2 update to roll out to the Sony Xperia Z, it looks like your wait may finally be over. We've received a couple of tips today that have shown that the update has started rolling out around the world, and there are even leaked images so you can get it right now, if you want.

The leaks show that the Android 4.2.2 update has begun rolling out to the Xperia Z model C6603, which is the unlocked international variant of the device. We have seen confirmation from China as well as Spain that the update is making its way out to users. There are also leaked versions of the install image if you want to get them. But, the instructions to manually update are in Spanish, so you are 100% on your own if you decide to try that. 

Links for all of that are at the source.

Can't say for sure, but it probably has the same as any Android 4.2.2 update: lockscreen widgets, gesture keyboard, Photospheres, a new clock app, notification quick settings toggles,

4.2.2 Doesn't make up for the fact that the CPU will be two generations behind once the LG G2 comes out next month. Sony really needs to time their flagship releases better. I would have gotten an Xperia S if it didn't have an S3 when everyone had an S4. And I might have gotten a Z if the screen didn't suck and it had a S600.

It's a make-up update folks... So buyers will never feel sorry because they bought a premium priced handset with a crappy screen and semi-outdated hardware Good Job SONY

crappy screen and semi outdated specs??? tell that to someone who owns a galaxy s4 which takes around 5 minutes to load applications after every reboot and from time to time starts lagging like hell even after having a octacore cpu...
