Sony Mobile is rolling out the latest Ice Cream Sandwich
(Android 4.0.4) firmware update for Xperia T and Xperia TX.
Starting from this week and rolling out to markets globally, the
release carries a host of new features and functionality.
Here's a quick look at what youshould expect:
- Screen Mirroring lets you experience the full Xperia T/TX
interface wirelessly via WiFi Miracast on your TV
- Extended standby mode increases the standby time by up to 4
times. When the screen has been in sleep mode for a few minutes,
Wi-Fi and data traffic will temporarily be disabled and most
applications will become inactive. Core functions such as
calling and messaging will work as normal; you will still be
able to receive calls, messages and notifications. Once you
touch the screen to wake the device up from standby all
functions are back to normal.
The upgrade also brings new improvements to Sony's media
- Movies app now let's you run the show from the dashboard with
a small viewing window, controls and film gallery.
- "WALKMAN" app's interface is more dynamic, with changing
colours to reflect the track's album art.
- Album app utilises Mobile BRAVIA Engine with even higher
contrast, depth and sharpness in photos and videos. You can also
make full use of SenseME Slideshows, delivering a tailored
presentation matching music to your image's ambience.
Xperia T supports HD Voice, which transmits a broader spectrum
of the human voice resulting in a more natural sound filtering
out background noise.
Sony will notify owners of Xperia T or Xperia TX smartphones
when the upgrade is ready, and it'll be available for download
over the air, via PC Companion or Bridge for Mac.
