Sony made the confirmation via their official Twitter account for the Xperia smartphone line when they responded to inquiries by Sony handset owners regarding the status of Lollipop update for their devices.

Sadly, in line with recent changes in its business strategy, Sony will no longer update all E, C, T, and M series Xperia handsets to the latest version of the Android operating system. Nonetheless, the company will continue to provide after-sales support for (and perhaps, even send updates to further improve the software stability of) all of these phone models.

TP Thoughts

It's no secret to all of you that I'm a big, big Sony fan and it pains me to hear that they are starting to 'mellow down' their plans for the Xperia line. That in mind and given all the recent developments in the company's strategy, I think this gesture by Sony to update all their flagship models to the latest Android version is laudable and reflects well on the company's integrity and concern for consumers. As a fan, I'm deeply rooting for Sony and I will continue to support them in their future ventures in the mobile industry.
