The title of this article kind of speaks for itself, but Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) will begin rolling out to the Xperia P, Xperia Go and Xperia E Dual this week, bringing buttery smoothness and Google Now to Sony’s 2012 lineup.
Together with Jelly Bean’s trimmings, Sony have also made some improvements of their own, including:
- WALKMAN, Album and Movies applications have been updated to use libraries to make it easy to view and share your content;
- The application tray now lets you organise applications manually, and has an inbuilt search feature
- The homescreen now can have up to 7 panes, with auto-resizing widgets
Xperia Go users will have to connect their phone to a computer and download the update through PC Companion (Windows) or Bridge for Mac, but the update should be downloaded over-the-air on other devices. Sony are also saying that the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia Ion and the Xperia Acro S will receive the Android 4.1 update from the end of May.
