Android 4.3 Update for Sony Xperia TX and SP Preparing for Imminent Release (At Least on Vodafone AU)

A little under a month ago, we talked about how Sony promised to deliver Android 4.3 to the Sony Xperia, T, TX, V, and Xperia SP in the very near future. This firmware update, which has been leaked during the course of its development on the SP and a few other devices, has also been the subject of much speculation thanks to some additional statements by Sony.

Now, it appears as if the software update is finally in the last few stages preparing for release—and this isn’t just for those mythical unbranded and unlocked devices that nobody ever buys, but rather for actual carrier-provided handsets. This good news comes direct from Vodafone Australia, the same carrier to offer similar insight for the Xperia M just last week.

Now, it’s important to keep in mind that just like last week’s news for the Xperia M, this technically only applies to the Vodafone Australia variants of the devices. That said, given that the update was probably submitted to other carriers at the same time, we can’t imagine that it will be too long before other carriers (as well as different regions of Vodafone) release the update on their networks.

Good job Vodafone Australia for leading the pack with these Xperia updates. Let’s hope this just makes its way to other carriers and regions in a timely manner. Once you’re one ranting and sharing your thoughts in the comments below, be sure to head over to the Sony Xperia, T, TX, V, and Xperia SP forums to continue the discussion!

Galaxy S6 Shipping with Different Camera Models

One of the Galaxy S6's most flaunted features is its spectacular camera, its 16MP with an f/1.9 aperture performing excellently in well-lit shots as well as low-light ones, with most reviews concluding that it trounces the camera on the iPhone 6 as well. However, all may not be right in Monde de la Samsung, as earlier today, XDA Member Bananaz came across a surprising detail about the shooter on the S6, and while the revelation is not necessary groundbreaking, it...

No, Android Apps on Windows Mobile Isn’t a Good Thing

As Symbian and Blackberry OS gradually gave way to Android and iOS towards the turn of the decade, the former leviathans found themselves struggling to hold their ground and when all seemed lost, they were forced to resort to extreme measures. While Nokia gave in to an acquisition by Microsoft, RIM's plans were more out-of-the-box and one of their efforts to save the platform whose existence was nigh on end was to build a runtime that allowed Blackberry devices to run apps built...
