    no can't upgrade it to androide becoz its hardware does't support......androide has sensors and some more hardware which is not present in this mobile....if u will try to upgrade it it may harm ur i strongly recommend that don't do this

    I don't think so, the hardware will not be compatible.

    You probably can after ages of rooting, hacking (nothing illegal) and maybe some coding but I doubt you wil be able to use android at all on your phone unless your phone has a touch screen. On the whole it would be easier, faster and probably cheaper to buy a cheap android phone like the Samsung Galaxy Mini

    it depends on the phone.... now in your case, the internal memory is too low to install android ... and the processor also would be too darn slow to run android

    No you can't!
    Only you can upgrade your android version if you if have an android supporting OS.
    Fresh install is not possible!

    there has been no rom developed for this phone to mod so no you can't.

    You will risk your phone getting bricked and even burned out if you do so.Moreover,the internal memory is 5 MB which is way too low for installing Android.

        But the read/write speed and loading times will lag heavily if he's able to build a successful ROM for his phone.Hardware compatibility is another issue he's going to face.

    the mobile hardware should also support android, if not will fail to boot or even mobile will not work anymore

    No, the mobile has to come with some type of Android to be able to install another type of Android, this come with Sony's own operating system.
