Xperia Arc S

We've already heard HTC's thoughts on Ice Cream Sandwich, and now Sony Ericsson has revealed its plans for the next version of Android. According to a statement on the manufacturer's Dutch Facebook page, SE plans to bring Android 4.0 to its 2011 Xperia line, which includes phones like the Xperia Arc and Xperia Play.

Here's a translation of the statement from Sony Ericsson Nederland --

We are planning to upgrade our 2011 Xperia smartphone portfolio to the next Android platform, following Gingerbread 2.3.4. The official Sony Ericsson communication about software upgrades will always be what my international colleagues publish on our Blog: http://blogs.sonyericsson.com/

So great news for owners of those devices, and proof that SE wasn't kidding when it promised to step up its game back in January. Looks like we'll be avoiding a repeat of last year's unpleasantness.
