Sony Canada: Xperia arc and Xperia arc S upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich now available

Earlier today Sony Mobile posted a note that the upgrade to Android OS 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich would be rolling out today to select devices, but specifically stated that “the availability and scheduling of this software upgrade will vary by market and carrier requirements.” Based on some information that Rogers relayed yesterday we thought the upgrade would be hitting Canadian devices “Early September.”

However, Sony Canada just wrote on their Facebook page that the upgrade will be “available starting today for Xperia arc and Xperia arc S.” Sony also noted that this is a phased rollout and “not all of these devices will get the update on the same day.” It’s not an OTA upgrade, so you’ll need to plug your arc or arc S in to the PC Companion.

In addition, “by September 30th, the ICS update will also be available for the Xperia™ mini pro, Xperia™ pro, Xperia™ S and Xperia™ ion in Canada.”
