2011 Sony Xperia Line Not Getting Jelly Bean

All the older Xperia phones have been getting the Ice Cream Sandwich treatment, which is very impressive. Sony has shocked us all with its software updates. However, a rep on their UK Facebook page said that there are no plans to bring Jelly Bean to the older phones. This isn’t particularly surprising, even though we know Jelly Bean is nearly the same as Ice Cream Sandwich and it would be easy to bring the update to the phones. Also, the phones wouldn’t need any extra horsepower to run it. Also consider reps are quite often wrong, so there is a tiny bit of hope left.

However, that same rep confirmed that the Sony Xperia S is close to getting the ICS update, which is good news. What do you think of this situation? Do you think Sony should work on Jelly Bean? Or, considering their good update track record, is it forgivable? Let us know in the comments!
