  • It has been recently announced by Google’s Jean-Baptiste Query (JBQ), Technical Lead of the Android Open Source Project, that Google has launched an experiment to bring plain vanilla Android to Sony flagship smartphone. This comes to settle the recent rumors about multiple Nexus devices coming in fall from different manufacturers.


    The team responsible for the Android Open Source Project have announced an experiment that could theoretically make it possible to load the latest version of the Android OS onto non-Nexus handsets as soon as it is released. According to Google’s Jean-Baptiste Queru, the experiment with the Sony Xperia S is just the beginning as the target is to bring the Nexus experience to as many devices as possible. Trusted sources within Sony Mobile over at XDA-Developers have said that there are talks going on about Sony actively supporting this project by making the necessary drivers available open-source.

    If the experiment succeeds and is approved by Google it could mean no more frustration for the device users regarding the updates. This may not apply to the carrier branded devices. Also it will give the user the choice if to use a custom manufacturer UI or go with the vanilla OS interface. hen updates start coming straight from AOSP you can expect new Android versions to be available only a few days after release. We’ll keep you informed as the story develops.
