Sony to roll-out ICS update next week, Xperia PLAY gets the boot
| by Roydon Cerejo |
We have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that Sony plans to start rolling out ICS updates for their older line of Xperia phones, sometime next week. These phones include the Xperia Arc, Xperia neo and neo V, Xperia mini and mini Pro, Xperia Pro, Xperia Active, Xperia Ray and finally Live with Walkman. Now for the bad news. The Xperia PLAY has been mysteriously kicked off from the ICS update list at the last moment. The reason behind this decision, according to Sony, is that the PLAY showed a lot of stability issues on ICS, especially with regards to gaming.
Here’s the rest of the statement from Sony, “This decision was also verified when we received similar feedback from the developer community; both experienced developers and advanced users, along with game content providers following our ICS beta ROM for unlocked Xperia PLAY smartphones. Our priority has and always will be, to provide the best possible user experience on Xperia smartphones. In this instance the ICS upgrade would have compromised stability, where we look to ensure a quality gaming experience with games optimized and developed for Xperia PLAY.”

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.
