Sony announces Android 4.1 update list for its Xperia models and not all 2012 models are on it

Unfortunately, some 2012 models will be left out. Even though the Sony Xperia U, Sony Xperia miro, Sony Xperia tipo, and Sony Xperia sola are all no older than 9 months of age, these models will be left in the dust, forever to have Android 4.0 installed. And there is no word on those U.S. models that AT&T has been peddling like the Sony Xperia ion and Sony Xperia TL.
Those that are getting the update to Jelly Bean should be receiving some Sony exclusive features and functions that Sony says it is excited to tell us about in 2013. For those lucky Sony Xperia owners scheduled to be updated, it is like finding a unexpected present under the tree. For the rest of you unlucky Xperia owners, it's like getting a lump of coal in your stockings.

Wow...until Feb? That ain't good at all Sony. Also, I see why Xperia tipo and Xperia U won't get JB (it only has 8GB, maybe the update would leave it with less than 4GB available), but Xperia Miro and Sola won't ge it? Seriously?

I really like Xperia T and V very much but this is the only reason I am didn't buy that. They are too late with updates and I think there might be another version of Android at that time. Reason to stick with my GS3.

Oh dear Sony, no surprises here then, just typical Sony being late as usual, by the time the T gets JB both my GS2 and GS3 will be on 4.1.2. :)

Wow so many Sammy troll around... Let see here, the only thing that Sammy 100% confirm the update is the sgs3, gnote, and gnote 10.1, even worse, Sammy is not yet promise the DATE!!!! At least I trust sony for being HONEST as a slow updater, to avoid create the hype... What makes you so sure you will get these when Sammy ONLY announced the update devices WITHOUT giving the accurate DATE!!! Where is the DATE Sammy? Why only Sony manage to announce it?

Errrm...GS3 and GNote2 are already on 4.1, in fact, both are now being updated from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2. Galaxy Note 1 and Galaxy S2 have been said to receive their 4.1.2 updates by the end of this month.

what the hell? the P,J,GO getting the update before the S? this is bullcr*p. and the U and Sola have the same chipset as the P and they don't get it? This is brutal hope sony comes back to this cause this could be the reason they will lose customers. (not me cause i don't really like htc's and sammys designs)

I will never recommend Sony to anybody now.......... I convinced my friend to purchase xperia U, telling him that song will surely update it to Jellybean. He was ready to purchase LG Optimus 4x, but now I don't know how I will speak to him......... Bad move Sony........... :(

Xperia SOLA owner. Sony. Don't.Believe. Never buying a Sony product again. Horrible ICS. Buggy as s**t even now. And it's been 13 months since ICS was released (3 months since it was released for my device). Additionally, the Xperia S will get Jelly Bean in mid April. Google might just introduce Android 5.0 in May at Dev I/O

Xperia S & Xperia Ion will be among the devices to recieve 4.1(JB)? F**k!, this just reaffirms that they're screwing customers up. Oh well If Samsung improves the build quality of the supposed SGS4 then I'm going Samsung this 2013 (no flashy ads is needed to convince me).

My personal choice has been only NEXUS devices. My Galaxy Nexus has been running 4.2.1 Would buy LG Nexus 4 from ebay (india) once price drops even if that means waiting for 6-8 montrhs ... Sony not in near future . .. but good at least son's Xperia P will get JB (not too sure Sony may drop it anytime from the list) :)
