Sony announced today that it is rolling out updates to a number of its Xperia line of phones: the Xperia P, Xperia U, Xperia Go and Xperia Sola. Sorry, you’re not getting Jelly Bean yet—that won’t be until 2013—but at least if you’re running Gingerbread on your Xperia P you’ll finally be getting Ice Cream Sandwich.

Luckily, the problems have been identified and a software fix will be released soon – apparently these issues also affect other Xperia handsets, such as the Xperia P, Xperia Sola and Xperia Go. According to a staff member from the Sony Mobile forum, a new firmware for the Xperia U will be rolled out starting with early August. It’ll still be Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread…

Our biggest gripe with the three devices is on the software side. The Xperias come with Gingerbread on board, which is a crying shame, no matter how you look at it. However, Sony has promised updates to ICS (for now) for all its recent devices, and, up until…

Sony has unveiled its new line of Xperia smartphones a long time ago, but the S-P-U trio didn’t enjoy a very smooth worldwide expansion. The mid-range Xperia P and the low-end U have been made available in select European countries both outright and with carrier contracts, while in the US there are only SIM-free, unlocked versions up for grabs. Other markets have been even more neglected by Sony, including Australia, but things are set to change in “the land down under”. You can expect both the Xperia P and the Xperia U to be up for grabs in a matter…
