Customers who bought new xperia devices before six months(in November or December) are now old to get JellyBean.

This sucks!

Atleast they should optimize the ICS kernel, ROM, whatever is needed for a proper android experience!

Re: Are we going to have the jeely bean update ?

Hi,

18 months of updates does not necessarily refer to Android version updates. This also includes performance enhancing updates on the Android version the handset is already running on.

Our developers will test the handsets on the new versions of Android which Google release and confirm whether the user experience is stable enough to provide an update.

Until we have confirmation regarding this, we would be unable to confirm which units will be able to run this version.

Just like she did before

Re: take a look n think again...bout x8 android 2.1!!!!

As the hardware of the X8 handset does not meet Google's requirements for the higher Android OS versions, unfortunately it would not be possible for us to update this model.

Re: The real reason X8, x10 mini/pro, w8 won't get an update?

The official statement does mention the RAM but it also mentions the following reason:

The upgrade of XperiaTM X10 also was made possible due to that we had a code base that mostly could be reused. For the mini’s, who have a different user interface, this possibility did not exist.

I am only able to provide you with the same information I have been provided with myself.

BUT the fact is that Android doesn't have a minimum hardware requirement. I've been waiting for you or someone from Sony to reply to that thread and still no answer.

I don't have any vendetta or something against Aimee, I'm posting facts, nothing else.
