Sony has announced that they are going to start releasing the Android ICS update for their Xperia branded devices from next month.
Sony Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray would be the first devices to get it from the mid of April.
Sony Xperia arc, Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, Xperia mini, Xperia mini pro, Xperia pro, Xperia active and Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman would start getting it from May.
The rollout would take a couple of weeks. The bad news is that the updates are not going to be delivered over the air. Customers would have to install it manually using PC Companion or Bridge for Mac. This means that a lot of users who are not techie enough would never even find out that their devices are due for a software update!
