the official update its around the corner as you can see in the link above, an almost finished update leaked, it shouldn't be long before they rolled it out

The rollout for the Xperia™ arc S will start later this month and continue over 4-6  weeks. This will depend on your specific market and carrier.

Re: When will I get the ICS update for Arc S?

So it won't be middle of April but rather end of it...

I also saw Sony Support Tweets where is practically said to not update phones from GB to ICS cause GB is stable...

I have Arc S on 2.3.4. and it's the worse phone I ever had -not even X8 or X10 mini pro were that slow, and if I have Timeline Widget then I must wait 15 sec to load home screen.

Also when listening to music -it stops when I activate the camera to take a picture; and songs skip if I try to run anything else (browser, game, gallery...)

Photos when being taken by standard camera (integrated sofware one) takes 10 sec to save it.

And you call GB on Xperia stable? I had almost every SE phone so far... And if keep that way, this Arc will be the last one -no need saving for Xperia S  if you'll act the same as so far.
