Xperia T/TX/TL Jelly Bean firmware certified ahead of release

Sony's first round of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-based firmware has passed through certification at the PCTRB forum, a usual indicator that the update is just a few weeks away from being pushed out to handsets. Firmware for the international Xperia T and TX and the AT&T Xperia TL has passed certification, meaning those handsets should be first in line for the Sony Jelly Bean upgrade. In the case of the Xperia TL, carrier certification may lead to a slight delay, but TL owners can rest assured that the bulk of the work is done.

Late last year Sony promised to release Jelly Bean updates for the Xperia T and TX in "mid-Q1," so it looks like things are going according to schedule. If you own one of those phones, we recommend keeping an eye out for the update in mid-to-late February.

  • Then what would you tell about a reputed company like Karbonn launching a unique 8-inch tablet providing every feature for as low as $120
  • Interesting that the first time PCTRB is EVER mentioned on Android Central, its done in passing with an assumption everybody knows what it is, and what it does.
  • Waiting on Jelly Bean update for Xperia S!
