Sony Ericsson announces ICS upgrade schedule

Wait, Sony Ericsson makes Android phones?

Sony Ericsson has announced its Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade schedule and it seems to be one of few outfits that is actually taking Android upgrades seriously.

Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V and the tiny Xperia Ray will get their upgrades in late March or early April. The somewhat older Arc, Xperia Play, Xperia Mini, Xperia Mini Pro, Neo and a few other models should be updated in May.

Mind you Sony Ericsson is not a major player in the Android market, at least not yet, hence our initial sarcasm. However, it must be noted that the latest Sony Ericsson Android handsets are pretty impressive, although they still tend to go unnoticed by the masses. The fact that the company is committed to rolling out the latest updates even for relatively old models is also a good sign.

It would be nice to see the Scandinavian mobile rivalry revived once again, with Sony Ericsson, soon to be just Sony, and Nokia battling it out with top notch Android and Windows Phone handsets. We miss the nineties.
