That question has now been answered by Sony Ericsson Italy’s Head of Marketing, Maurizio De Palma who announced via Sony Ericsson Italy’s Facebook page that ICS will be coming to the all 2011 Xperia models by March next year. Because there is almost no operator customisation in the Sony Ericsson smartphones that we have here in here, you can expect Malaysia to be among one of the first countries to get the update as soon as it is released.
Once again, the models Sony Ericsson has confirmed will be receiving ICS are:
Xperia arc S
Xperia neo V
Xperia mini pro
Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman
Observers are also saying that Sony Ericsson is expected to launch new devices ahead of the ICS update roll out. If this is likely the case, we’re certainly looking forward to see a dual-core device in the brand’s 2012 offering. So far, Sony Ericsson is the only device manufacturer that is devoid of a dual-core world phone.
We’re pegging Sony Ericsson as one of the brands to watch for 2012. What do you think?
