Sad Xperia S not getting jellybean?

here is the latest news i found so far

Android 4.1 upgrade list: Is your device getting Jelly Bean? | Computerworld Blogs

xperia s IS NOT ON THAT LIST
and to think sony once called it its flagship device for 2012
even a 2010 nexus S already had its taste of jellybean
is this because sony released way too many flagships for 2012 and overlooking the first one?
i think sony is following LG's way which really sucks big time

tbh I'm not that bothered. I'm really happy with my phone now it's on ICS, and the only firmware that would interest me would be one which dramatically increases the battery life.

Dont believe the X10 will get jelly bean considering it was left out of the ics update so possibly put wrong handset name down on the list, I could be wrong

You mean, not getting JB officially, if it means that much to you, root and install a JB Rom.
Though at the moment they are alpha /beta

I dont want to root my phone and prefer official updates
I really would like the buttery smoothness of JB, pinch transition in homescreen for floating widgets has slight hiccups on ICS

Then, without meaning to sound horrible.
Tough.

As far as I'm aware there are only 3 ways of getting new roms.

1,Official update.
2,Leaked rom flashed with flash tools.
3,add a recovery.

If you look on Sony's web site and search for arco s it's listed as shipping and the os is 4.1 jelly bean, could be a typo but I don't think that jelly bean for the sxs is that far away.

Yep, crap, sony said it was a typo lol

The Sony Xperia S doesn’t differ too much from the Ion: it features a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 12MP Exmor R camera sensor, and a 720p display, only here it is 4.3-inches in size. If it looks familiar, it’s because we have seen this... Read More
