Re: Is sony Ericsson W8 upgrade to android 2.3/2.2

The w8 was sold to me assuring me of a DEFINITE upgrade to a higher version of android. Its the only reason i even bought it, the "definite" upgrade. Im really disappointed looking at these reviews. Its quite ironic how other brands give us phones with a 2.2 for way lesser than how much u cough up for a w8 with the assurance of an upgrade. I definitely feel CHEATED n would appreciate it if someone from SE made things clearer for all of us please. Its just too annoying!! :smileyplain:

well I don't know which country you live but that doesn't seem legal to promise an update. Here in the US its called false advertisement and well that's really bad

Please Sony Ericsson.

Give us the 2.3 update we've been hoping for. Please, we'll be greatly satisfied and happy if you'll provide us the update for our W8s. We're still hoping that you would. :smileyhappy:
