Sony Ericsson Readies Android 2.3.4 for Xperia Handsets

Japanese-Swedish mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson is reportedly set to make available for download a new OS flavor for the owners of its latest Xperia devices out there, namely Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread.

Currently, the leading handset vendor is pushing out the Android 2.3.3 OS version to its devices, but it seems that the latest flavor of the OS should arrive on the market as well soon.

Nothing is officially announced on the matter for the time being, but some reports on this already suggest that the company is now in the testing phase of the new OS flavors.

The new Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread operating system iteration is being prepared as an update for the company's Xperia arc smartphone, as well as for the Xperia PLAY, Xperia neo, and Xperia pro smartphones.

While arc was unveiled to the world during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the other three Xperia handsets were launched during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

The new software update should bring forth all the fixes and enhancements that Google included with the OS, along with a series of other improvements as well.

Sony Ericsson reportedly included the Sony audio filter technology xLOUD into the mix, as well as some other functionality that would make its Xperia users rejoice.

For the time being, no specific release date for the OS upgrade has emerged, but rumor has it that it would be deployed sometime in October.

Apparently, Sony Ericsson is also testing Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread for the older Xperia X10 smartphone, though no details on whether the software will be made available for this smartphone as well are known.

All the Xperia handsets that were launched in 2011 came with Android 2.3 Gingerbread right from the start, and it was only a matter of time before Sony Ericsson decided to deliver the new OS iteration for them. Stay tuned for more on this.
