Sony have announced that they've begun rolling out Android 4.0.4 for the Sony Xperia T and the Xperia TX. Those with unlocked versions of the smartphone should see the update become available in the next couple of days.
One new feature is the inclusion of support for "Miracast" , which is a new wireless streaming method. You can easily steam whatever is your on smartphone to any TV with Miracast support. There arn't many of those around at the moment, but thankfully a Miracast adapter is available which enables any TV with a HDMI port to support Miracast.
The standby time of both the Xperia T and Xperia TX have been improved by up to four times thanks to the new Android update. This increase is made possible because the operating system automatically turns off data and WiFi automatically after your mobile has been in sleep mode for a few minutes.
Sony has also included improvements to some of its "Media Applications" with the Walkman application now benefiting from a more dynamic interface. While the "Album" application now utilises the "Mobile Bravia" engine which improves the quality of photos and videos.
Those with the Xperia T or TX locked to operators will have to wait until their carrier releases the update. The only question left is whether James Bond has updated his Xperia T to the latest version of Android and we'd like to think Q sorted it out for him !
