Sony Ericsson rolls out a new Android update

Updated on November 29 2011

Today we've detected an update alert on a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S. The version is 4.0.2.A.0.42 and it requests the use of PC Companion from SE to install the package. The original version available on phone is 4.0.1.A.0.266.

After we have seen this alert, we checked the Sony Ericsson site; nothing changed and no official statement regarding the update. Only the message on first page: "Fresh Gingerbread" which has been posted a few weeks ago and in that update list there are many Sony Ericsson Android phones. We really don't know if the update is available exclusively for the Xperia Arc S.

We will try to install it later and let you know about any changes that might come up. So keep in touch.

Update: We have instaled it earlier today and seems to be just a firmware update. We didn't see any changes to speed design or anything yet. The Android version remains to 2.3.4 on Xperia Arc S. So... we will wait patiently until the Android 4.0 will be rolled out by Sony Ericsson.
