Sony Ericson Xperia PLAY Receives Update (Not ICS)
By Fred Salva

Of course, I am disappointed that this is not Android 4.0.2 Ice Cream Sandwich but still – any useful update for my favorite smart-phone is appreciated. Sony and Verizon are now pushing out an update for the Xperia PLAY which includes a great number of useful improvements and features as well as new versions of Verizon Navigator and Verizon Video on Demand! Let’s take a look at the changelog: Verizon Wireless Video on Demand now comes preloaded. Improved user experience and new delivery method of preloaded games. When connected via Bluetooth®, the Music Player now supports Fast Forward and Rewind. VZ Navigator® has been updated with the latest 3D map improvements. Upgraded to Gingerbread 2.3.4 operating system. A long-press of the power button will successfully capture a screen shot. Charging issues forcing device to remain in landscape mode have been resolved. Recommended contacts now populate correctly when using the dialpad. Right trigger successfully captures a picture. Record video in 720p with continuous auto-focus. Device is now enabled with the Wireless Emergency Alerting System. Mobile Hotspot ID broadcast can be turned off to increase security.
