Get out that sweet tooth Xperia owners! Sony plans to release its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to owners of the Xperia T and Xperia V in a rolling update between and now late March, meaning you too will have the glory of Google Now and other new Jelly Bean features in no time.
Sony’s Xperia series has gotten a lot of attention in recent months as the iconic smartphone behind James Bond, but the coming Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is coming for all users of the 2012 portfolio of devices, not just the suave spy himself. A blog post by Sony announced the coming updates and also noted that the 2011 Xperia series will have to stick with Ice Cream Sandwich. If you do have a 2011 series Xperia you can always check the development world for an unofficial update, but either way Jelly Bean brings plenty of new features to the table including Google Now, a faster interface, and bragging rights among your friends.
Does anyone else think James Bond will opt for the update? He seems to be the kind of person who likes the latest and greatest gadget upgrades. Like Bond, you can grab the update and all it has to offer sometime between now and late March, when Sony plans to finish rolling out the update to customers. Unlike Bond, you probably won’t have ladies swooning all over you because of it.
