Jelly Bean updates start rolling for Sony's Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia E dual

Sony has started rolling out Jelly Bean updates for three of its phones, including Xperia P, Xperia go and Xperia E dual. Aside from “standard Android 4.1 goodies” like Google Now, improved push notifications and Project Butter enhancements, the Japanese company is also including some of its own feature updates and tweaks, such as:

  • More intuitive versions of Sony Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies
  • Battery STAMINA Mode that prolongs the phone’s battery life. It knows when the screen is off and shuts down the draining apps you don’t need, and then instantly starts them up again when the screen is back on.
  • Application tray sorting is now a bit breezier, and there’s also a new search function that makes it easy to locate your favorite apps.
  • A revamped homescreen experience for handling widgets, apps and shortcuts, with up to 7 desktop panes.

The new software is available over-the-air, except for Xperia go, which requires connecting the phone to a PC and using Sony’s PC Companion software (or Bridge for Mac).

As for which devices are next to get the update, Sony says that will be the Xperia S, Xperia SL, Xperia ion and Xperia acro S — all of which should get their serving of Jelly Bean from the end of May.
