Surprise: Sony will bring Lollipop goodies to the Xperia T2 Ultra and C3 after all

Sony Mobile s shot callers must have been delusional if they thought for a second they d get away with simply forgetting about contemporary non-Xperia Z smartphones1 mere months after their commercial debuts.

Fortunately, the Japanese OEM quickly regained its grasp on reality, reevaluating the company s stance on Lollipop updates for the Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia C3. The 2014 mid-range pair is officially on its way to Android 5.0 or perhaps 5.1, although obviously, timings will be shared at a later date.

Before the two can be brought into the 21st century software-wise, we re certain even their owners will admit Sony needs to wrap things up for Z3 and Z2-series gadgets. Also, the original Xperia Z should score Lollipop first, as a teaser dropped on Google Plus assuredly suggests.

Next to a self-explanatory photo of a 5.0-powered Z, you have a vague but fantasy-inducing coming soon message, the releasing of which can only be explained by the imminence of the rollout.

Either that, or Sony purely wants to remind the world the two-year-old is still alive.

It s even still available on Amazon at $275 in a factory unlocked LTE flavorT2 Ultra costs $2343.

Bizarrely enough, the smaller C3 is pricier at the moment, going for $265 free of contractual obligations4 or carrier restrictions.

Now, can we get some Lollipop love for the T3 and M2 as well?
