By on January 11th, 2011

During the CES 2011, there were hardly Android phones which were running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Most of the handsets were based on Android 2.2 (Froyo). However, one handset which caught the attention of the media was the Sony Ericsson Arc. The About Phone’ screen of the device showed that it was running on Android 2.4.

Looking at the version number jump from 2.3 to 2.4 it was rumored that the Android 2.4 update won’t bring many changes.


Well, now there is a twist in the tale. The official Sony Ericsson Product Blog has confirmed that the Xperia Arc runs on Android 2.3 and that Android 2.4 does not exist. The blog has confirmed that any Xperia Arc caught displaying Android 2.4 in the About Phone’ screen is nothing but a misconfiguration’. In the same post, the company has also provided some detail information about the internal specification as well as the software of the Arc.

At least this is a good news for the manufacturers. After all, they will have one less Android update to roll out.
