Sony has finally released the schedule of the KitKat and Jellybean updates…
KitKat is coming to Xperia smartphones at last! We’ve been anxious about software updates since Sony initially teased us with the next wave of updates. We know that, in addition to the new KitKat 4.4, some devices will receive another injection of sweet Jelly Bean. Read on to find out which Xperias will be updated and more about what treasures KitKat brings.
With the announcement of Android 4.4, aka KitKat from Google, many began to look at their favorite Android smartphone maker for news. (Yes, I can state that since I run this site! But seriously, Sony smartphone sales are up nearly 40% so they’re doing something right). Sony who in the past has been slow at adopting new versions of Android and received appropriate flack for it has been getting better in the last year. Of course with the Android 4.4 KitKat, many not only wondered when they may receive that update, but they also wondered when they’d receive Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Luckily, Sony seems to be aware of this and has announced that they will have an announcement soon.
