    Sabarlah beb. Xperia play tak dapat ics sbb byk games tak support ics os lagi . Bukan sebab sony saja2 taknak kasi. Maybe xperia play akan dapat latest gingerbread upgrade yg terbaru.


Should put warning, Sony Haters please don't read.

    The Truth

    should put warning: sony is till releasing phones with outdated specs and screen and long overdue software upgrade. until further notice, they will keep paying blogs to pretend their stuff is interesting.


      LOL you might just be right about that…..

      honest T

      Yup. Until then there are volunteer workers that find Sony uninteresting interested to come to every Sony post and comment how boring the phones are. I'm very sure you're not paid and troling for a very good cause.
