Google released its Android M developer preview late last month and while it’s currently only made for the Nexus 5, 6 and 9, Sony thought it would be cool join the bandwagon too.
Sony has announced that they have brought the Android M developer preview to 12 of its Sony Xperia devices in order to assist app developers who don’t own a Nexus device as a part of their Open Device program. A system image is available for developers to download and flash onto following devices: Xperia Z3, Z3, Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact, Z2, Z2 Tablet, Z1, Z1 Compact, Z Ultra, E3, M2, T2 Ultra, and T3.
It’s worth noting that right now the camera and modem are currently not supported in this build, which makes it not suitable for use as a daily driver. No word has been said if this will continue to get updated as Google releases its next build of Android M by next month.
