Sony planning Xperia S ICS update for May/June

Sony planning Xperia S ICS update for May/June
Sony has been one of the more open manufacturers when it comes to its Android device OS updates. We've seen Sony release alpha and beta builds of its Ice Cream Sandwich update to get community response for a number of Xperia devices. The only thing we hadn't heard is when the top shelf Xperia S would be getting its taste of Android 4.0. 

That's finally been answered as well. Markus, a Sony Xperia Support team member, was found on the Sony Mobile forums a few days ago dispelling a rumor. The word had been that The Xperia S would be seeing the ICS update in June or July, but Markus says that Sony is actually aiming to release the update by "late May/early June". That means Xperia S users should be seeing the update within the next month or so. 

We were surprised that the Xperia S wasn't part of the crowd-sourcing initiative of the ICS beta, so we're hoping the update doesn't come through with any bugs.
