Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will not see Ice Cream Sandwich

Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will not see Ice Cream Sandwich

Sony had promised an update to Ice Cream Sandwich to the entire Xperia range of 2011. That promise was kept and so far can not update the Xperia Arc S, Xperia Ray and Xperia Neo V, but there are some bad news. The first smartphone to be certified PlayStation, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, will not receive the latest version of Android due to problems encountered during the testing phase. The problems encountered concern the continuity and stability of software, especially as regards the games – which are also the center of the smartphone. Sony has not considered acceptable in accordance with the opinions of testers and developers, have degraded performance and reduced stability, which is why he canceled the update to Ice Cream Sandwich Xperia Play.

On the official blog of Sony and see a small passage that explains why this choice.

"As Xperia PLAY, after extensive testing with our internal development team and our partners, we concluded that experience continuous and stable, especially with the games, can not be guaranteed for this smartphone with Ice Cream Sandwich – so will not be made available to upgrade to Android 4.0 for Xperia PLAY.
This decision was verified when we received similar feedback from the community of developers, developers and advanced users with experience, along with game developers who used our beta ROM of ICS for the Xperia PLAY smartphone unlocked [agreed on what].
Our priority has been and always will be to provide the best possible experience for users on smartphones Xperia. In this case, the update to ICS would compromise the stability, while we try to ensure quality gaming experience with games developed and optimized for Xperia Play. "

It's really a shame that we have not been able to update a smartphone so special and, in my opinion, beautiful latest version of Android. The only solution to get the Ice Cream Cookie on Xperia Play is the use of custom ROM. We hope that other Xperia smartphones of 2011 will be updated as promised.
