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

Sony announces Android 4.1 update list for its Xperia models and not all 2012 models are on it
Has your Sony Xperia smartphone been naughty or nice? Sony Mobile has created a list of which models will be receiving the Jelly Bean update when the Japanese manufacturer starts rolling out Android 4.1 next year. As you might expect, those higher-end Sony Xperia models that were released in the latter part of 2012 will be the first to get updated. The Sony Xperia T, Sony Xperia TX and Sony Xperia V will be the first to get "Jelly Beaned" in February and March. Once those updates are done, the Sony Xperia J, Sony Xperia P and Sony Xperia go would be next in line for the update, most likely in late March. Those with the Sony Xperia S, Sony Xperia SL, Sony Xperia ion and Sony Xperia acro S will then receive Android 4.1 in the following weeks.

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.
