Sony's Xperia T is famous for being the smartphone used by James Bond in the movie Skyfall. However, the Xperia T is also a great smartphone in its own right and the good news is that it can be now be updated to Android Jelly Bean.
The manufacturer has begun rolling out Android Jelly Bean for SIM-only smartphones with the operators set to release their versions shortly. This is great news for for Xperia T owners who might have been feeling a little down after the recent unveiling of Sony's new flagship smartphone the Xperia Z.
What improvements will Jelly Bean bring to Sony's Xperia T ?
Android Jelly Bean brings a number of improvements to Sony's Xperia T which previously ran on Android Ice Cream Sandwich.
Standout new features include "Google Now" which is Google's voice-assistant software, while the update adds support for actions to the notification bar. The user-interface is now faster thanks to "Project Butter", while the operating system is more stable.
The good news for Xperia T owners is that Sony have integrated Jelly Bean's features into its own applications mean that users will benefit from improved versions of Sony's Walkman, Album and Movie applications.
Mr Bond is probably busy installing Jelly Bean on his Xperia T right now and we advise you to do the same. However, make sure to backup your files and settings before installing Jelly Bean.
When will my operator release Jelly Bean for my Xperia T ?
Currently, we don't have information from the operators themselves on when they'll release Android Jelly Bean for the Xperia T. However, in the last year they'll improved their turnaround times and we'd expect the update to land on all major operators within the next month.
As soon as 3G get more news on the Android Jelly Bean update for the Xperia T we'll let you know.
