Sony’s list of devices to get Android 4.3

Android 4.3 is barely a day old, and Sony has already gone ahead and published a list of devices that will get the update. This is beautiful. Why don’t more companies do this?

“Yesterday you probably saw Google announce the next version of Jelly Bean (Android 4.3) – we’re already getting stuck in and can confirm we’ll make 4.3 available for: Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR, Xperia Tablet Z, Xperia SP and Xperia Z Ultra.”

So there you have it. Out of all those devices listed, which would I recommend? I haven’t touched the Z Ultra, but I want to, really badly. What I’m personally waiting for (from Sony) however is the Xperia i1, codename Honami. That’s rumored to be announced during the first week of September, at IFA in Berlin. People say it’ll have a Snapdragon 800 inside, 5 inch 1080p screen, 3,000 mAh battery, and a 20 megapixel camera that puts nearly every other Android device to shame.

Will the i1 ship with Android 4.3 on-board? Doubtful. Highly doubtful.
