Users can either update their phones over the air or through PC Companion, with those who’ve got unbranded phones bought off-contract first in line for the upgrade. Those of you who bought the handset on a pay monthly monthly deal, may have a little while longer to wait while carriers put the new OS iteration through network testing.

Sony Ericsson stated: “The roll-out will start now but, as some of you know from earlier updates, I’d like to point out that it is a gradual roll-out over markets, mostly because of different approvals needed for different markets and customized kits.

“Therefore, depending on where you live and what customised “kit” you own it can take a while before you get it. In general unbranded “trade-kits” will be early.”
