Sony Ericsson have just announced that starting October they will be pushing out Android 2.3.4 to their 2011 lineup of Xperia devices, which covers: Xperia Neo, Xperia Play and Xperia Arc; all of which are available in Australia.

The update not only brings the Xperia Series up to the latest version of Android (besides 2.3.5 which was mainly for the Nexus S) it also brings a collection of new features:

  • Gtalk Video Calling
  • Facebook inside Xperia — deeper Facebook integration, like sharing apps
  • 3D Panorama Sweep photo mode — shows up as 3D on televisions according to the video embedded after the break
  • T9 Swipe Keyboard — not sure if it’s Swype, but it looks like it
  • USB On The Go (OTG) — allows you to plug peripherals into your device

Bring on October, I say! A video demonstrating each of the aforementioned features is embedded after the break; check it out.
