Sony Ericsson showcases Android 4.0.1 ICS alpha ROM on video

It is coming! Android ICS for Sony Ericsson Alpha ROM is out for developer. Unfortunately at the moment it only support on Xperia arc S, Xperia neo V and Xperia ray. The preview ROM isn't suited for a day-to-day use - major features like telephony, Wi-Fi and Google apps aren't functional just yet.

The list of updated are :

  • New “Roboto” font
  • New “Holo” theme is supported (you are able to test apps written to make use of the Holo theme)
  • Music player control from lock screen
  • Updated UI in the Settings menu
  • Updated UI in the web browser
  • Updated UI and interaction with the new messaging action bar
  • Updated UI for improved multitasking
  • Swipe to dismiss notifications, tasks and browser tabs in the Notification menu

I was hoping they quickly change the home screen design and icon as well ;)
