Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4 OS Update

I just purchased Sony Xperia Ray last January which is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone. As per Sony's website, the roll out for this free OS update to Google Android (4.0) Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) begins this April.

ICS is a major upgrade to both Honey comb (3.0) for tablets and Ginger bread (2.3) to phones and tablets. ICS will bring more simplicity on settings options and icon colors and other additional features such as face detection.

Upgradability to ICS depends on your phone / tablet hardware specifications and of course, to your device's manufacturer. Usually, if your device is equipped by a gigahertz processor, it will probably upgraded to ICS. Sad to say, this will not apply to the original Samsung Galaxy S. You can visit your device manufacturer's website for more information and updates on the ICS roll out. 

Last February, I had sold my Xperia Ray after 1 month to buy an HTC Radar which is a Windows Phone 7 handset. I need to have a breath of fresh air in user interface. Previously, I owned a HTC Magic Android phone for more than 2 years.
