Back in November, AT&T launched the Sony Xperia TL to coincide with the arrival of James Bond’s Skyfall. It’s the phone that James Bond uses in the film and it’s a phone that hit shelves with some attractive features and an even better price tag. AT&T first offered this phone for $99.99 on-contract and now, the phone is being offered for $49.99 on-contract.

Today, the phone got even more enticing as it was updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Its Jelly Bean update can be downloaded and installed right this very minute meaning users of the Xperia XL can snag all of the new features that come with Android 4.1. And they are many.

Android 4.1 brings a number of new features to the table including a quicker user interface, Google Now which can predict things like traffic in travel routes before users even leave the house, improved apps like Calendar and Browser and a whole lot more. It’s a big upgrade from Android 4.0 and one that users have likely been waiting for.

What’s more is that the update comes with some enhancements from Sony as well. There is an improved app tray and better camera functionality on board as well. All in all, it’s an update that Xperia TL users on AT&T will want to download and get running.

That said, it also means that the Xperia TL Jelly Bean update has beaten the AT&T HTC One X Jelly Bean update to the punch, something that previous phones like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Motorola Atrix HD have done as well.

AT&T’s 2012 flagship remains on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, something that has certainly stirred up frustration amongst the AT&T HTC One X community. The roll out for the global HTC One X started all the way back in October meaning owners of the device on AT&T have had to wait for more than four months for the update’s arrival.

The carrier still has not confirmed a release date for the software meaning that, unlike Xperia TL owners, HTC One X owners on AT&T will have to continue to wait for the Jelly Bean update.

    @%#$#@% OK this is just silly. Sony? Really? So, the Sony Xperia line gets the upgrade before the highest rated smartphone of 2012? I’m happy that we will eventually get Sense 5, bu this makes no Sense at all.

    I have been checking my One X everyday for the past 4 months for the Jellybean update. I honestly don’t know why I bought this phone! Don’t get me wrong the One X is still an awesome phone but I have become disheartened at this whole situation. AT&T you are the worst cell company out in America! I could careless about sense 5!! It’s just going make this update take even longer!

    It’s not even HTC’s fault as evident by all the HTC One X Jellybean updates on other carriers. AT&T is a freaking scam. A disgrace of an American company.

    I can’t wait to switch carriers! I give some blame to HTC as well. Nexus is sounding so good right now!
