Sony (Ericsson) Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo are now getting updated to Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich and the update has started appearing for these handsets in batches. The phones are getting updated to Android 4.0.4, but will remain on the 2.6.32 kernel. 

Sony has put up a post on their official site stating that, 'The Ice Cream Sandwich software update for 2011 Xperia Smartphone’s is now being rolled out. The update is released in batches, and below you will find links your phones list of all the currently released ICS software’s. Since there are minor differences in the software depending on product, country and operator we have a unique identifier that we call Sales Item (SI). The SI is identified by an 8-digit number in the format XXXX-XXXX.’ For those wanting to know the SI number on their phone, can find it by taking off the back cover and removing the battery and the number is located underneath.
