Sony has now turned their attention to the Xperia mini and has officially announced on their blog that the update is now rolling out in phases so if your SI number matches the one in the list, there’s a good chance you’ll get it. Here’s a little excerpt from makers themselves, “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 to each 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). “
