O2 Blocks Ice Cream Sandwich For Xperia Arc, Ray and Neo

UK cellular system O2 has declared that it will not be forcing out the Ice Lotion Food update to clients who own a Panasonic Ericsson Xperia Arc, Xperia Ray or Xperia Neo.

The information will come as a shock to clients who own these cellular phones, as Panasonic has formally made the newest edition of Android operating system available for these gadgets, and Search engines has to accept the update before it gets launched.

O2 declares the reason for its choice not to force the update to the three gadgets is due to adverse significances Android operating system 4.0 had on the handset's rate as well as.

Performance issues :

In a information content on its site, O2 said: "Unfortunately with the Xperia ray, arc and neo our examining discovered that the application update impacted the cell phone's rate as well as.

"Because the application impacts the cell phone's performance in this way and because you can't return back to an previously edition of Android operating system without having your phone absolutely renewed, we have made the decision not to accept the update (for the Arc, Ray and Neo)."

This indicates if you bought your Arc, Ray or Neo via O2, then you'll be trapped with Android operating system 2.3 Gingerbread – which O2 notices is a "very constant platform" - until you choose to dump the cellular phone for something different.

Sony has had good feedback :

TechRadar approached Panasonic about O2's choice, and a representative for the company said: "In common we have had good reviews from clients who have improved their 2011 Xperia smart phone to Android operating system 4.0.

"Android 4.0 is a more highly effective OS, with new functions and performance, but it also needs more storage source from the smart phone and this may effect performance in some personal circumstances on 2011 Xperia cellular phones.

"Our strategy when we launched this application a few months ago was to clearly notify clients about the effect it would have on their cellular phones so they could take a aware and advised choice to make sure it was appropriate and doing for the person needs of the person."

So Panasonic confesses that is some situations performance may be impacted, but we wonder whether O2 has taken it a phase to far by absolutely preventing the update.

Perhaps clients should be given the choice whether or not to update their gadgets, as long as Sony/O2 offer them with all the necessary information before hand in regards to prospective problems.
