Re: When will 4.0 be released to the 2011 Xperias? (Bad news, March 2012)

I don't use timescape it takes a lot of RAM to run and it's pointless, what's the point on having over pixilated pictures as backgrounds and not being able to read the whole tweet, update, sms, etc or clicking on a posted link w/o having to open the facebook or tweeter app.

I really like Timescape.  Aggregating all my feeds in one place is a great idea and the only other app I found that does this well is TweetDeck but this has a terrible UI.  I've added the Music Timescape plugin as I like seeing what's been playing.  The Timescape widget is pretty useless though - it's too small and they should of offered a large version like they do with the picture viewer.

I was thinking about it, and it doesn't make sense that google will just gave the code to companies like SE just now, since manufacturers have to design their new handsets many months back, and ICS has virtual buttons that will change the design entirely if they didn't know or had an early ICS code

Some ICS dev drops are already in the pipeline. Don't wanna bet my kidney though on its authenticity.

I really hope Sony can see how much positive PR they will gain by releasing a clean ICS ASAP and then following it up with the real-deal when ready.


They already have great kudos in the community for the bootloader unlocking, and they could gain even more with a timely release of ICS for enthusiasts.

Please Sony, sort it out..  make it so...

ICS landing to select Xperia phones in January 2012?

Great news for all Sony Ericsson Xperia phone owners, who have been eagerly waiting for Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to run on their devices. A Sony employee has tweeted, rather optimistically, that ICS should be expected to arrive in the very first week of January next year for all 2011 Xperia handsets.

 

 

This is a bit of a contrast to the statement of Sony Ericsson Italy, who have said in a Facebook post, that the software update shouldn't be expected before March 2012.

Meanwhile, though, the Xperia arc and neo Ice Cream Sandwich firmware has been submitted for certification by the smartphone manufacturer. If it passes the thorough certification checks, we could indeed see ICS as soon as early next year.:smileylaugh::smileylaugh:

This means that the Xperia active, arc, arc S, mini, mini pro, neo, neo V, Play, pro, Xperia ray and Live with Walkman are going to be one of the first amongst the vastness of Android smartphones to enjoy the new Android software.
