Got an Xperia S? Check for Updates, There's an Ice Cream Sandwich Waiting

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony's mobile people have updated the extremely nice Xperia S to the very latest version of Android, releasing the finalised "Ice Cream Sandwich" build of Google's software for its current smartphone flagship.

The update will take the Xperia S up to version 4.0.4 of Android, including all the standard ICS features like the data use monitor, face unlock tool, updated web browser with Chrome bookmark sync and much more, plus a reworked photo gallery and WALKMAN branded music player with a screensaver thingy coming from Sony's end.

If you have an Xperia S, it's about to feel even newer and more exciting than the day the courier dropped it off. Sony says the update is hitting some users right now, and should be enhancing everyone's telephones within a few weeks. [Sony]
