The Android 4.0 update has been made available for all 3 of the smartphones by Sony , but O2 won't be issuing the update to its customers. O2 have been testing the update and claim that it effects speed and performance negatively and for that reason they won't be releasing it.
O2's stance is understandable because once you upgrade to a new version of Android you can only downgrade by completely restoring your smartphone to its factory settings. This would be complicated and confusing for a lot of users , so it's understand why O2 don't want to release it.
This is disappointing news for those wanting to experience the latest version of Android on their smartphone, but we trust that o2 have made the right decision. Owners of the three smartphones should take comfort in the fact that Android Gingerbread runs smoothly and efficiently on their mobiles.
