Update: Wait until late Q2 for Xperia S ICS update

Earlier this month, news came in that The Xperia S handset was to recieve it’s anticipated Android 4.0 or Ice Cream Sandwich update a little earlier than expected. A member of the Sony forum support team had posted saying that the ICS update for the Xperia S was coming out late May early June.  This news brought much excitement amongst Xperia S owners. Unfortunately, the information given on the official Sony Mobile forums at this time was incorrect and the company have moved to rectify this information. The support staff member himself has changed his original post and reposted giving the correct details that the Android 4.0 update for the Xperia S is actually due in the latter part of Q2. See the image post below for his full explanation:

Disappointing to learn that the update isn’t coming sooner however, it seems like a genuine slip-up and a genuine apology has been made. A little longer to wait will hopefully be a little longer for Sony to make sure any bugs are ironed out prior to the update being made available for the Xperia S.
