Sony hasn’t been the most popular tablet manufacturer this year. They came into the market a bit late and their products don’t really offer much more than the competition, specs-wise. There is no doubt that Sony has taken a much different approach in design, but what would make their tablets much more enticing would be the hottest Android version, Ice Cream Sandwich.
Sony will treating all of its 2011 smartphone line-up with Android 4.0 starting next March/April. But some of you may be wondering what will happen with the tablets, though, which Sony has not mentioned when talking about the updates.
Sony has just released a statement about the matter, and both the Tablet S and P will indeed be getting an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. Sony has been working hard at keeping its devices up-to-date, so we assumed these bad boys would be getting ICS as well. It is always good to hear it straight from the manufacturer, though.
Sony Tablet™ is evolving, and we'd like to keep you informed with the latest updates.Today we're happy to confirm that an update to Android 4.0 will be available for Sony Tablet. Details including timing will be announced in due course, so please stay tuned.
As mentioned, we still do not know when these updates will be coming. We would assume that the time frame should be pretty close to that of the update to Sony’s smartphones, though. Sony promises to give us more information soon, so stay tuned for more details.
