Sony Brings Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich To Tablet S

Sony released the latest iteration of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, for the Tablet S before it hits the rest of the Xperia range from last year (including the Xperia Play, the Neo and the arc amongst others).

Sony's Maya Wasserman said in a blog post "The next time you connect to Wi-Fi, your Sony Tablet S should prompt you to do a system update, just click OK to download, and in a few minutes you should be ready to go on Android 4.0."

The update will bring single motion panorama photo mode as well as direct access to the SD card to the tablet. It will also add a number of "small apps" including a remove control plus an enhanced lock screen.

You will also get the new Face Unlock functionality as well as Google's Chrome browser rather than the bog standard Android browser. Sony has yet to confirm whether Android 4.0 ICS will come the Tablet P.

The tablet can be had from Amazon for as little as £299, a £50 discount from its recommended retail price. The device comes with a dual core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz, with 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage and a 9.7-inch 1,280 x 800 pixels display.
