This info is correct, the update is available already but it might not be in certain countries yet. To confirm if the update is available for your phone, download the PC Companion from the Sony Ericsson website and connect your phone to your computer to have it updated.
I got a notification saying the update was there and it took me to the update process. I am on T mobile UK.All worked fine, have not noticed much difference though.
