Sony has announced that its mid-range Sony Xperia P Android smartphone will be getting its long awaited Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software update later on this month.
Between August the 19th and 25th users should start receiving the update to their mobile phones via the OTA system, but some may not be so lucky as there are still networks that have not confirmed the update.
The announcement came courtesy of Sony’s Facebook page, which states that the Xperia P will be the first mid-range handset to get the update away from its Google Android Gingerbread current OS.
Sony have been painstakingly slow at getting the now older ICS update out to its Gingerbread handsets and with the newer 4.1 Jelly Bean update now available for smartphones with many manufacturer rushing to get this update out on its phones, the ICS update can’t come soon enough.
Samsung is another manufacturer that has seen issues pushing out the ICS update to its handset range, but with the manufacturer currently on top of this demand they have shifted their focus onto the Jelly Bean update for as many phones as possible.
So if you have the Xperia P make sure that you keep your device connected to Wi-Fi and search for update from the 19th of this month.
