It is raining Jelly Beans! If the Jelly Bean update for the AT&T One XL, the original RAZR MAXX and RAZR MAXX HD was not enough, Sony has started rolling out the update for its mid-range Xperia handset, the Xperia J.
The Xperia J sports a single-core Cortex-A5 processor from Qualcomm, an Adreno 200 GPU and 512MB of RAM. While the specs are nothing to boast about, Sony thinks they are enough to run Jelly Bean in all its Project Butter goodness on the handset. Other Jelly Bean goodness like Google Now, enhanced notification bar and speech-to-text are also present, along with improved stability and performance.
The update is slowly being rolled out by Sony all over the world, so might take some time before it becomes available in your region. You can update the handset either via OTA or by using Sony’s PC Companion application on your desktop.
It is quite ironic that Sony is rolling out the Jelly Bean update first for its mid-range to lower-end handsets, and not for its previous year first-half flagship handset, the Xperia S/SL. This update schedule will definitely not go down with current Xperia S owners, and potential Xperia Z buyers.
