Back in August, Google's technical lead of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) had announced the AOSP for the Sony Xperia S. According to GSMArena, Sony has announced that it has taken the lead on the AOSP for the Xperia S, and will maintain the source for the device at GitHub, where other developers are encouraged to help. Sony has released a video of the current progress of the Android Open Source Project on Sony Xperia S.The video demonstrates that the current iteration of the Android Open Source Project on the Xperia S works pretty well with things such as Wi-Fi, SD card, and all the sensors working properly. The audio and modem are also working, but Sony hasn't released the binaries for now for proprietary reasons.In October, Sony had revealed the list of devices that would be getting the official Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. The handsets that are scheduled to receive the Jelly Bean update in the first quarter of 2013 are the brand’s latest models, which include the Xperia T, Xperia TX, and Xperia V. Sony has announced that global models of the Xperia S, Xperia Acro S, Xperia Ion, Xperia P, Xperia go, and Xperia J will be upgraded to Android v4.1.
