Satrve for Jelly Bean until next year (Sony smartphone)

Many of Sony's Xperia smartphones will not be receiving their upgrades to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean until early 2013,
Another handful of handsets released as recently as 2011 won't be getting the upgrade at all, including the Xperia Arc, Xperia Play, and Xperia Neo.

Sony has stated that the Xperias T, TX, and V will be updated to Jelly Bean in "mid-Q1" of 2013, which will be about six months after Jelly Bean was officially unveiled at Google I/O alongside the Nexus 7. Most major Android phones have already received their Jelly Bean updates, though few manufacturers can claim to have been timely, and at least one has backed out of promises for upgrades. Rest in peace, Android Update Alliance.
sony not getting jelly bean update

Sony has clarified that the Xperia Play, the sliding smartphone with a PlayStation-style gamepad, will not get an update to
Jelly Bean at all, despite having been released in June 2011. In the meantime, we are expecting too see the next version of Android, 4.2 Key Lime Pie, unveiled at a Google event on October 29.

Sony is one of the newest players in the Android smartphone game, having recently bought out its partnership with Ericsson and releasing its first independent smartphone only this summer. But the company doesn't have that much margin for error, either, when companies like Samsung are dominating as they are.
