According to Sony, the new ICS firmware will bring improvements to Wi-Fi, NFC and Messaging, camera, tethering as well as stability fixes.

The Xperia P users will receive a notification when the update is available for their device, however, the direct availability depends on the market and carrier .

The Xperia Sola, Xperia U and Xperia Go owners who have already upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich will receive a notification once the update is available and they will be able to download it over-the-air.


In case you have any of the devices above and they still run on the Gingerbread OS, you should download PC Companion or Bridge (if you’re a MAC user) and update the software manually.

As you might know, all the Sony Xperia smartphones that were released in 2012 will receive the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in early 2013, but no specific roll-out dates have been announced so far.
