Sony starts rolling out Jelly Bean for the Xperia V
| by tech2 News Staff |
Sony's Xperia blog has confirmed that the company has started rolling out Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for yet another handset, the Xperia V (LT25i). From what is known at the moment, the update seems to be available across some European countries, including Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany and Switzerland. Yesterday, Sony started rolling out Jelly Bean to the Xperia T, at least in the Netherlands.
Jelly Bean updates galore.
This development is in line with reports from last year, when Sony Mobile confirmed that the Jelly Bean upgrade plans for the Xperia T, TX and V were moving forward, and these smartphones would be upgraded to Jelly Bean during February and March. The Xperia P, J and go are set to be the next in line to receive the upgrade—from the end of March. Upgrades to the Xperia S, SL, ion and Acro S will follow in the weeks to come.
Android 4.1 Jelly Bean builds on top of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This operating system is designed to make everything smoother, faster, and more fluid. Notifications are now more dynamic, allowing you to access and interact with the alerts from the drop down menu itself without ever having to open the app. Another interesting feature is that voice typing is now faster, working even when the phone is not connected to the Internet. Google states that it has re-designed search from the ground up in Jelly Bean with a new user interface and faster, more natural Voice Search.
Here are some of the key features that Android 4.1 Jelly Bean brings to the table:

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
