What Has Happened To Sony?!

Android 5.0, Lollipop rolls for the Xperia Z Series, Android 5.1 coming for Xperia M2 and Xperia M2 Aqua. . .

You might’ve seen our Android 5.0, Lollipop upgrade start for Xperia Z, Xperia ZL, Xperia ZR and Xperia Tablet Z – it just keeps on rolling out as we speak to more and more markets worldwide*.

And now that Android 5.0, Lollipop upgrades are rolling across regions for all our Xperia Z, Z1, Z2 and Z3 products, what’s next?

Well, we’re excited to confirm that we’ll be upgrading those products*, as well as Xperia T2 Ultra* and Xperia C3* to Android 5.1, starting from July.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Other models are mentioned at that link too.

I’m really in a state of shock here. This is so unlike Sony!

Just when I stop looking at the T2 Ultra (which Best Buy seems to no longer be showing in-store!), Sony reels me back in. Grrrrrr.

This would have to have a crazy stupid very, very low price for it to attract any more of my interest.
