Now rolling: Android 4.3; Jelly Bean for Xperia T, Xperia TX, Xperia V and Xperia SP

Hi everyone – earlier this week, we started rolling Android 4.3; Jelly Bean for Xperia SP, and from today it begins for Xperia T, Xperia TX, Xperia V*…

As you’ve seen, we’ve been working to blend our Sony Xperia software with Google’s Jelly Bean release to create some cool user experiences (if we say so ourselves) – in addition to the standard performance tuning, new functionality includes:

  • Google’s Android 4.3; Jelly Bean as standard – bringing Project Butter performance & UI response optimisation and a smoother graphical experience
  • We’re also uplifting Sony’s entire native app portfolio to the latest versions – bringing tweaked / improved / current experiences for (to name but a few):  Messaging, Smart Connect, Small apps, TrackID, Sony Select and
  • Sony’s Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies, with Sony Entertainment Network cloud service integration* – a more converged and full Sony entertainment experience – Sony Entertainment Network & PlayMemories integration with a more intuitive UI, offering seamless access to both local and cloud conten
  • The launch of our unique custom interface experience: “Xperia Themes”, with downloadable UI packs from Sony Select – more on this soon…
  • The latest Android security enhancements, matched with Sony’s mobile enterprise solution: Xperia in Business
  • Battery STAMINA Mode – updated version of Sony’s power management app, now with refreshed interface and more smart options for prolonging battery life

*As usual, timing & availability may vary by market & carrier
