Not really disappointed.

I buy the arc at a time when people buy the razr n sammy note. I buy it for it call quality, beauty,sound,camera and screen quality are 2nd to none.

Not for the sake of the latest spec,kernal or software.

tired of waiting. i unlock my bootloader n install some ics rom..its does felt faster.but ram is an issue.and theres lot of bug particularly on gps,3g n wifi.a lot of apps can't run properly on ics.

Be ashamed Sony!

I'm pissed because Sony said the want to keep up with updates, at first they did that.
But then they stopped at 2.3.4 and even 120€ 600MHz Samsung devices are on 2.3.6.
Then they said that they won't update the kernel to 3.0 to oush it out faster.
Samsung and HTC did update the kernel to 3.0 and are pushing out 4.0 already!
What do version numbers mean? We have gotten screenshot and panorama photos in GB which is an ics feature. Check pctrb, 5+ firmwares were released.
Device > Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo
ROM > FreeXperia CM10

A month late is better than never.

They are optimizing it further more, for better user experience and bug free and hopefully they will encourage us to upgrade to 4.0 rather than having dilemma choosing 2.3 and 4.0

If we are to choose, I hope they will release 2.3.7 along side with 4.0.3 for Xperia 2011 to their PCC

I have a xoom and for weeks people have been bitching about not getting the ics upgrade here in the UK and running about rooting their device then they moaned about the bugs like hdmi not working and some games and apps as well. Now moto have released an update to 4.0.4 for the us market but uk will get this one as the upgrade so those of us that waited didn't have to go through all the bugs and things.

I would rather wait a little while longer and have everything working than Get it now and have it full of bugs or meaning my device didn't work as it should. I'm certain all the ones on here moaning of the delay would be the first ones on moaning of the bugs as well. A no win situation for Sony

The beta was pretty bad in terms of ram usage. Apps closed a lot, they might fix that in the release version but I don't think they lied in that post.

Seriously? It's a couple of months. Get a grip!.. And regarding other, normal users not wanting to flash.. They probably won't even be aware of the OS upgrade!
