Sony Ericsson promises Android 4 for 2011 phones

Sony Ericsson made a pledge Tuesday that all of its 2011 Xperia phones, and the Live with Walkman, would be getting Android 4.0. The company planned to adapt its custom interface to the new OS regardless of size, ranging from the Xperia minis through to the Xperia arc S. It didn't yet have timing.

Most major smartphone makers have so far committed to upgrading to Android 4.0. Samsung already has the Galaxy Nexus and will upgrade high-end devices next year. ASUS and Motorola have also pledged upgrades. LG, following a pattern from last year, eventually made plans after initially telling customers it wouldn't provide an upgrade. HTC has been the most detailed, creating an early roadmap.

Most pre-Galaxy Nexus phones won't get the full feature set, such as context-sensitive touchscreen navigation buttons, NFC-based Android Beam sharing, or the fully HD-optimized interface. They should, however, get all the tablet-inspired elements as well as software features such as Face Unlock.
