Jelly Bean not coming to 2011 Xperia devices, but Xperia T and ion update coming in 2013

Sony posted a note on their company blog that might be a bit unsettling to 2011 Xperia device owners. They stated that they’ll continue to rollout Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich to those handsets that have yet to receive the upgrade, but as for future upgrades to Jelly Bean: nope. “Beyond Ice Cream Sandwich we would not able to guarantee owners of these smartphones the user experience you expect and we demand. We will however, continue to support all these products with firmware maintenance releases.”

However, if you’re interested in scoring the upcoming Xperia T – which will be available “this November” on Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers and Videotron – Jelly Bean will be hitting your device “from mid-Q1 2013.” In addition, Sony confirmed that the “Xperia S, Xperia acro S, Xperia ion, Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia J will be upgraded to Android 4.1,” but the “Availability and rollout timing will vary by market and customer variants.”
