Sony ICS Update
Earlier this year Sony had announced that it would be updating all of its Xperia phones that were released in 2011 to ICS in Q2 this year. Sony has been spot on with their announcement. The ICS Updates have already started coming out. The first series of phones to receive the ICS Updates were Xperia Neo V, Xperia Ray and Xperia Arc S. Now a couple of phones join the list – Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo.
So now five phones from Sony have an ICS Update. Sony has announced in its forum that the other phones will join the list pretty soon.
The forum indicates that the users can identify if their phone has been updated in this batch by an unique identifier – Sales Item (SI). It is an 8 digit identifier of the form XXXX-XXXX. The users can find this number under the battery. Using this number, the users can check if their phone can be updated now or not. The SI thing is because the updates are being released regionally.
The list of phones that are yet to receive the ICS Update are Xperia Pro, Xperia Mini Pro, Xperia Mini, Xperia Active and Sony Live with Walkman. Sony has promised that these phones will be receiving the ICS Update very soon.
