Xperia T 4.0.4 update rolling out, adds Miracast compatibility

imageSony has just announced that the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 update is now rolling out for the Xperia T and Xperia TX in European and Asian markets. 

The most noticeable part of the update is Miracast compatibility. This was recently announced as part of the specification of the new Nexus range and enables the sharing of your device’s screen with other Miracast devices, such as Miracast enabled TVs. However, as SlashGear has recently pointed out, there are at the moment only a handful on Miracast compliant devices at the moment.

Another impressive part of the Xperia T update is improvement of battery standby time by up to four times. When the device has been asleep for a few minutes, Wi-Fi and data traffic will be automatically turned off and most apps will become inactive. This will not however affect the handsets ability to receive calls and text messages when in standby mode.

There’s also an update to Sony’s media apps included with the 4.0.4 update.
