AT&T's Sony Xperia Ion getting its Android 4.0 update, too

International version of the Sony Xperia Ion already got its serving of Ice Cream Sandwich and now those of you who got the smartphone from AT&T are getting the same treatment. Guess the U.S. carrier wanted to test out the new software or something – we need to justify the delay somehow.

Anyway, this isn’t an over-the-air affair and you’ll rather need to use Sony’s PC companion software to bring the new version of Android to your Ion. Here’s what the new firmware brings:

This Android 4.0 update will provide faster Mobile Hotspot and Wi-Fi speeds. Exchange Active Sync also received several upgrades thanks to Android 4.0. Several calendar and e-mail status indication enhancements were made to help you stay organized, while passcode security enhancements for unlocking Exchange Active Sync will give you more peace of mind. Up-to-date and improved visuals have been added to the street view in Maps, and when watching a YouTube clip you will also notice improved performance when rotating between portrait and landscape views.

Yeah, you do want to update – proceed to this page at Sony Mobile’s website to grab the software if you still don’t have it installed on your PC or Mac.
