Sony Xperia S Gets Android Update

Sony's Xperia S mobile phone is getting a facelift after the manufacturer released its Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the handset.

The cutting-edge software gives the Xperia S an entirely new look and feel, overhauling the user interface completely.

The Ice Cream Sandwich update is approximately 200MB. It includes an array of new features too, like enhanced phone locking, and resizable screen icons.

It also has a few changes under the hood, like a new way of dealing with multi-tasking and the ability to set data caps for apps so that free download allowances are not exceeded.

Three new apps have also been introduced by Sony. They are Walkman, Album, Movies.

"The Movies application streamlines the playback and viewing of movies in high quality audio and video, whilst using intelligent database search to grab movie posters and information for a richer experience," Sony noted.

Last month, Sony released its Music Unlimited app for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
