Like I said earleir by the time SE releases ICS we should not be surprised when SE launches the products with 4.1.x or 4.0.x just as in the case of Gingerbread, 2.3.2 instead of 2.3

Sony Ericsson Russia has confirmed that the Xperia Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will start in March 2012. The first update will be for the Xperia arc S, neo V and ray models between March to April 2012.
The rest of the 2011 Xperia range (Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia Pro, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia active and Live with Walkman) will then see the ICS update in late April to early May 2012.
SE Russia says that it is due to the integration of additional features such as the PlayStation Launcher,

Take a chill pill guys. Just look at the amount of moaning that Galaxy Nexus owners have been doing on the Anroid Market due to apps being incompatible with ICS. Right now you're better off with Gingerbread until the problems are ironed out.
SE's Gingerbread also has most of the notable end-user features of ICS anyway (the Nexus S version almost looks like a clone of the SE skin too). To me ICS is not such a big deal, and the only major end-user feature that I feel I need is spell checking. Just be happy that your phone is still receiving support at all. I'd rather SE took their time and made a solid release that puts Google stock ICS to shame, rather than rushing a buggy release.

SE insult early 2011 Xperia customers
"2011 Xperia™ smartphones will be upgraded to Android 4.0 starting from end March/early April 2012. The first smartphones to get the upgrade are Xperia™ arc S, Xperia™ neo V and Xperia™ ray. Soon after, starting from end April/early May, Xperia™ arc, Xperia™ PLAY, Xperia™ neo, Xperia™ mini and mini pro, Xperia™ pro, Xperia™ active as well as Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman™ will get their upgrades. "
in other words, Cutomers who bought their flagship Xperia Arc, or the other top of the line phones Xperia Play Xperia Neo won't get the update first, how does that make sense? the Arc S, Neo V and Ray were released later on 2011, it's not fair, its not right.
Xperia Arc S, Neo V, Ray will get it by the End of March Early April
the "REST" of the 2011 Xperia line up will get it LATE APRIL EARLY MAY?
Why is this a huge issue? yes we will get the update BUT, we can see the shift of focus to those 3 phones, so if there are bugs on the ICS update to the "REST" of the Xperias we will have to wait longer, thats an example/reason on why this is a huge problem
