Sony revealed the Android 4.1 update schedule for its 2012 Xperia smartphones on Monday.
Sony Xperia T, Xperia TX and Xperia V will be getting the Jelly Bean update "during February and March," while Xperia P, Xperia J and Xperia go will be upgraded "from the end of March," according to Sony Mobile's official blog.
Finally, Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S will get the update in "subsequent weeks."
Unfortunately for owners of the Xperia U, Xperia miro, Xperia tipo and Xperia sola, Sony has decided not to upgrade these devices beyond Android 4.0.
Sony just launched the Xperia T handset which assumes the flagship position in the Sony Xperia lineup. The Xperia T will also be known as the Xperia TX in other markets but it’s not known which markets Sony is referring to.
As to performance, there’s no denying that the 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8260A Snapdragon S4 CPU is blazing fast. The rest of the specs include pentaband UMTS / HSPA+ radios, a front-facing cam with 720p video capture, MHL connectivity, FM radio, 16GB internal storage and an 1,850mAh battery. The rear camera is capable of shooting at 13 megapixels with fast capture capability. Sony says this Sleep to Snap feature allows taking photos from sleep mode. The Sony Xperia T also has NFC for connecting to other Sony devices.
The Xperia T will not run on Jelly Bean when it launches in September. Sony opted for Ice Cream Sandwich instead but it promised a Jelly Bean update shortly after launch.
Sony Xperia T will come in black, silver and white colors. Pricing and availability in the Philippines are still unknown.

The Xperia Arc S is revised version of the original Xperia Arc. Sony Ericsson has bumped up the processor to 1.4GHz and added 3D and 2D sweep panorama photography. Among other features would be similar with the original Xperia arc including 4.2-inch Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine (480 x 854 resolution pixels), 8.1-megapixel camera with Exmor R image sensor, 320MB internal storage and supports microSD card up to 32GB.
Plus, Sony Ericsson has also introduced Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services to Xperia smartphones soon. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S comes in five colors, Pure White, Midnight Blue, Misty Silver, Gloss Black and Sakura Pink.
The Xperia Arc S offers a smaller chassis compared to the HD7S. It has a thickness of 8.7 mm, 22% smaller than the HD7S (11.2 mm).It is also lighter by 27% (117 grams vs 162 grams). The Xperia Arc S comes with a memory slot capable of supporting microSD up to 32GB whereas the HD7S does not have a memory slot. On the rear camera, the Xperia Arc S offers an 8-megapixel camera while the HD7S comes with a 5-megapixel camera. The Xperia Arc S processor is clocked at 1.4GHz while the HD7S only offers a 1.0GHz processor. Lastly, the Xperia Arc S also offers DLNA and Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity whereas the HD7S does not support either one.
According to cnet.com "There's no shortage of shiny black Android phones, but Sony Ericsson has once again worked its magic to make its design look fresh, clean, and interesting, and very Sony Ericsson in style. Worked entirely in plastic, the Xperia Arc nevertheless manages to keep from looking like a cheap toy. Sharp corners (perhaps a tad too sharp for some) combine with the illusion of contouring on the phone's thin, slightly flared sides to good effect."
The good: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has a slim, the body gorgeous build, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and 720p HD video capture. The bad: Several buttons on the Xperia Arc are too small, and the unlocked price would be a prohibitively expense for most. The bottom line: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is a beautiful handset with some great features, but a high price tag and no network optimization leave few reasons to buy this unlocked Android phone.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc(midnight blue) price $364.00 to $379.99.

Sony Xperia neo L features 4-inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front camera, 512MB RAM, 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 processor, 1GB of internal memory with microSD card support and a 1,500 mAh battery.

The latest Android smartphone from Sony, the Xperia sola, takes the touch out of the touch screen – although we’re not yet sure how.
Just like magic. Or click on a flick from Video Unlimited for blockbuster movies in super-high quality on the razor sharp Reality Display.
“Sony’s unique floating touch lets consumers navigate the web by hovering their finger above the screen so it acts like a moving curser, without actually having to touch the screen,” Sony claims, adding that the technology will evolve through “software updates and engagement with developers.”
Other than that, the device is a fairly standard Android 2.3 handset (upgradeable to Android 4.0 during summer 2012), with a 3.7” Reality Display, a 1 GHz dual-core CPU, NFC and Xperia SmartTags support, as well as “3D surround sound.”
The device should hit the market globally in three colors – black, white and red – in the second quarter of 2012.

Here's the Xperia P features, specification, prices, pictures and video. Sony wants each of its phone to be unique it looks very pretty.
Sony Xperia™ P is the latest addition to the Xperia™ NXT series of next generation smartphones from Sony. Xperia™ P offers an ultra-bright viewing experience thanks to the introduction of WhiteMagic™ screen technology, and comes with a 4" Reality Display housed in aluminium, unibody design for a sleek look and feel.
Xperia™ P also introduces the new ST-Ericsson U8500 platform, which provides a 1 GHz dual core processor with SMP technology for high-end performance. Plus, Xperia™ P gives you an 8MP capture camera, full 1080p HD recording & front camera, NFC, and a ton of other features.
The Xperia P is the first handset to include Sony’s WhiteMagic tech, which adds an extra white subpixel to each pixel on the screen, making for a horizontally-aligned RGBW pixel layout. for the less technically inclined, what this means is better screen visibility when outdoors. The difference compared to standard LCD and SuperAMOLED displays is quite striking -- the Xperia P's screen remains clear and usable even in very bright conditions.
On the inside, there’s a dual-core 1GHz ST-Ericsson NovaThor chip running the show, backed up by 1GB of RAM. We’ve already seen NovaThors in a couple of entry-level Android smartphones, and while it’s not the fastest dual-core chip around, it delivers plenty of horsepower for a phone like the Xperia P. As we already mentioned, there’s no removable storage to be found in the Xperia P, but the 16GB of on-board memory is a reasonable amount for this kind of device. It’s split into 2GB for apps and 11GB for media, with the rest being taken up by the OS. So overall it’s a reasonable hardware package, and a decent step up from the Xperia U, which offered 512MB of RAM and a dismal 4GB of non-expandable media storage.

Sony Xperia P Battery
The combination of a 1305mAh battery and Sony’s new super-bright display tech makes for battery life that’s decidedly average (though not entirely terrible). With our regular usage patterns consisting of web browsing, snapping a few photos, a little music playback and the occasional voice call, use we got 13-14 hours on the Xperia P before that battery warning light started to flash.
The Xperia P’s screen was the device’s biggest battery hog, as we noticed the phone’s longevity decreased rapidly the more we used it outdoors, forcing that brightness to crank up further. Fortunately there are two auto-brightness settings on the device -- one for max brightness, one for power saving. The bottom line is that Sony’s mid-range offering delivers battery life that’s generally acceptable, though if you’re a heavy user you may need to allow for a midday charge.
Sony Xperia P Camera
The Xperia P’s rear shooter produces great-looking 8MP shots in a wide range of conditions. Photo capture speeds aren’t the fastest we’ve seen on a phone by any means, but you can’t argue with the resulting images. Macro shots in particular are a strength of Sony’s 8MP EXMOR R camera, and the f/2.4 lens means it does reasonably well in low-light too, though the device does struggle to focus in such conditions.
Like other Xperia phones, the Xperia P supports 3D panoramic recording, though you'll need a 3D TV to play back content recorded in this phone.
Today we release an Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) beta ROM, as a follow up to the previously released ICS alpha ROM. In line with our goal to support the open developer community, we want to give you the chance to try out our coming upgrade to ICS (Android™ 4.0) in this beta version.
While the ICS alpha ROM was an early preview, the ICS beta ROM have passed some certifications such as Modem type approval, and important functions like FM radio and GSM are turned on. However, additional certification and approval is needed before an official upgrade can be released. As previously communicated, we will upgrade all 2011 Xperia™ smartphones running on Android to ICS. Read more to find out what’s included in the beta ROM, and what other limitations apply.
Since we released the ICS alpha ROM, we have received many comments and suggestions on our ICS implementation. We are very grateful for all of this feedback, and we can guarantee you that we’ve read every single comment with great interest. Your opinion is important to us, and we have evaluated all suggestions in relation to all the other parameters we are taking into consideration.
In the ICS beta we are now releasing, we have kept elements that we know are valued by users. On top of that we will bring Ice Cream Sandwich elements to provide a unique experience.
The award ceremony for the event took place last week in Germany and we already reported earlier in the week that Acer's unreleased CloudMobile won an award.
Sony Ericsson/Sony were even bigger winners because they got their first ever "Gold Award", which was given to the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active. The awards are given to the devices that signify the very best in mobile design.
The mobile one the award due to its elegant design and waterproof and dust-proof specification, which combines elegance and functionality. The Xperia Active is a mobile aimed at sports users and is suitable for everything from simple workouts to extreme sports.
