Of all the manufacturers that are focusing on Android, Sony has recently been the most transparent about the upgrade process. Just yesterday, they released their Jelly Bean update plan, detailing which of the Xperia handsets will be receiving the buttery smooth upgrade. This should be good news for Xperia owners who could only speculate until now on whether their specific handsets would make the cut.
Obviously, the top of the line Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V will be receiving the update first in the middle of Q1 next year. Next will be the international versions of the Xperia S, Xperia Acro S, Xperia Ion, Xperia P, Xperia Go, and Xperia J. Sadly, the entire 2011 Xperia lineup will not be getting upgraded to Jelly Bean at all. This is a bit weird, considering the Xperia J actually has the same chipset as some of the older 2011 Xperias.
