Sony Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia E dual Jelly Bean update rollout begins

Sony has announced that Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia E dual smartphones will start getting the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update this week. Sony notes that the rollout is a phased process and will ramp up over this month and next, so exact availability may vary from one region to the other.

Sony also mentioned that Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S are "are next in line" and will receive the Jelly Bean update "from the end of May."

Sony had announced the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update roll out plan for all its smartphones back in December last year. Based on the original plan, Sony has been almost a month late in rolling out the update for Xperia P and Xperia go, as the original plan was for the phones to get the update "from the end of March."

However, Sony did release the Jelly Bean update for Xperia T and Android 4.1 update for Xperia J ahead of schedule.

Change log of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia E dual as shared by Sony is included below.

Make your battery last longer with Battery STAMINA Mode

Organize and search for your apps in a new quicker way

Application tray sorting is that bit breezier - just press and hold on any app - move, add it to your desktop or create a folder within the tray by dropping it on top of another.

We've also added a new search function within the application tray that makes it easy to locate your favourite apps.

Personalize your phone even more with your additional panes

A revamped homescreen experience for handling widgets, apps and shortcuts... with up to 7 desktop panes, widgets that auto-resize and actionable notifications, you have complete flexibility to create the interface you want with a few simple touches.

Google Now brings you just the right information at just the right time even before you know you need it

In some cases - particularly for Xperia go users - we've only made the upgrade accessible via PC Companion or Bridge for Mac due to the size of some software packages, and these users will only receive an in-phone notification if running Ice Cream Sandwich.
