Sony rolls out update to Xperia T and TX for Miracast mirroring, extra-long standby

Sony Xperia T review

Sony Xperia T and TX owners won’t have to wait until the eventual Jelly Bean update to eke some new life out of their software. From this week onwards, the Bond-blessed Android phone is getting an update that adds screen mirroring through Miracast; provided the stars align and you’ve got a compatible TV, the high-end Xperia gets that much larger a canvas. Upgrading also introduces an extended standby mode that temporarily shuts off data, a movie app with a small video player and a photo album that makes use of Sony’s full image processing engine. We’re further reminded as to how much sweeter that HD Voice calling on the T (but not TX) should sound. As much as we’d prefer a full-fledged OS update, it’s a welcome dose of relevancy for a smartphone that has had fierce competition almost from the start.
