[Update: Now Rolling OTA] Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) Now Available For AT&T's Sony Xperia TL

Ice Cream Sandwich may have been good enough for James Bond, but the Android die-hards who nabbed Sony's Xperia TL on AT&T want more. And by "more," we mean "an update to a newer version of Android." Fortunately, that's finally available.

Update: Looks like AT&T just started pushing the update over-the-air if you don't want to deal with flashing it manually. Head into Settings > About Phone > Software update to grab it.

AT&T started pushing Jelly Bean (4.1.2) to its variant of the Xperia T (the TL) earlier this month, but Rogers apparently wasn't far behind.

  • Updated, more intuitive versions of Sony Media apps: WALKMAN, Album and Movies
    Lets you view and access all your photos, videos and tunes in one place.

Sony Releases A Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) Alpha ROM For Unlocked Xperia T, Though It's In A Devs-Only State

Way back in December 2011, Sony began releasing 'alpha' developer ROMs for some of its phones being upgraded to Android 4.0. Then it released beta ROMs that did slightly more stuff. Now it's done the same with Android 4.1 for the Xperia T.

These ROMs are developer-facing in every sense of the word, though, and aren't intended as a way for power users to get early access to the next version of Android.

The Xperia TL is Sony's current flagship smartphone, and packs a 4.6" 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, LTE, and a 13MP Exmor rear camera. At the low, low, price of "basically free," this is a pretty decent deal - $100 less than what you'd pay at an AT&T store.

Xperia T And TX Receiving OTA Update - Includes Wi-Fi Mirroring, Extended Standby, And HD Voice Support

The Xperia T and TX, the latter of which I quite recently reviewed, are slated to receive an over-the-air update globally in the next week* (*unless you're on AT&T, in which case the ETA is: haha, good luck), and it's packed with features. Features that do things. Here's the breakdown.

First, Wi-Fi Miracast display mirroring, which is actually a stock feature in Android 4.2. And in case you're wondering - no, this is not an update to Android 4.2, you're still stuck in Ice Cream Sandwich-land.

Xperia TX Review: Just Another Pretty Sony Phone That Isn't Very Good

If you're not much a classic car nut, and you were to walk up to a stylish little 1968 Opel GT, like this one, you'd probably think "Wow, is that... Italian? It must be fast (for its age)."

Of course, you would be wrong. The Opel GT is, in fact, based on the rather pedestrian Opel Kadett - seen here. The GT was not particularly quick, expensive, or really even that rare.
