Sony Confirms: Xperia Play Won’t Get ICS
By Fred Salva

By the end of last week we shared information about the Xperia Play, Android 4.0 ICS and that they are never going to meet. Officially. Well, back then it was a rumor, right now it is an official confirmation. Sony Mobile has confirmed that the planned Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the PlayStation-certified smart-phone has been cancelled. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play will remain on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, maybe, with a couple of minor updates ahead. The argument was pretty simple: ICS doesn’t work stable on the Play, especially when we talk about games compatibility. Frankly speaking, I am really surprised (in a bad way) cause I was more than sure that the Play will get its own ICS. Unfortunately, I was mistaken and as you can see yourself – things didn’t go the way they should have. But, no matter what, you can still visit XDA developers’ forum and after rooting install whatever you want.
