Sony still working on Jelly Bean for all Xperias

Sony fans with 2011 Xperias may still receive a Jelly Bean update, despite contrary information provided by a Sony spokesperson last week.

In a new post on the Sony Xperia Product blog, the company stated that the information "was given out in error" via the company's Facebook page, which had said that 2011 Xperias would be left out of future software updates to Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.

We are actively investigating Android OS upgrades for all devices, but in the meantime, our Ice Cream Sandwich roll-out for Xperia S and 2011 Xperia smartphones continues as planned.

Obviously, this revised statement neither confirms or denies the development of specific updates for specific models, but does offer hope for Sony customers with handsets that are still less than 12-months old, in some cases.
