Yesterday at Sony’s CES 2015 presentation they slipped something in that we initially missed, but it is (as James May would say) good news! While there haven’t been any mobile announcements at CES as yet, and there probably won’t be, there was a little tidbit snuck in.
You may recall that Sony had earlier promised to bring Lollipop to the Xperia Z3 (and other flagship handsets) fairly quickly. In fact, Sony had promised to update virtually the entirety of its Xperia Z line to the latest version of Android, something which is basically unparalleled in other smartphones.
Well, Michael Fasulo (Sony’s CEO) said the first releases of Android 5.0 Lollipop can be expected for the Xperia Z3 as early as next month. We don’t know when in the month, so it could be week one, or it could sneak into March, but the fact that Sony have twice promised the Xperia Z3 will receive Lollipop and soon, and twice have looked at February as the likely date, gives me some measure of confidence.
For those of you (like me) who are anxiously awaiting this update, it won’t be long now.
