Sony Ericsson have begun the roll-out of the Android 2.3.4 “Gingerbread” update for the Xperia Series starting with the Xperia Play on Optus and Virgin, and the Xperia Arc on Virgin. The update was meant to begin in October, but hey, a week into November isn’t too bad considering how long some updates can be postponed for.

The update will bring continuous auto-focus for the Xperia Play along with the ability to switch on and off the auto-brightness setting — an option not available on the Xperia Arc or Xperia Neo. The new camera application on the Xperia Play is now themed like the rest of the UI instead of being the same application as the AOSP. There’s also a few cool extra features in the camera application according to a commenter at the source link.

We’re not 100% sure if the update is being sent over-the-air (FOTA) or via Sony Ericsson’s PC Companion tool. Either way you should be able to update your device now, enjoy!
