Android 4.0 hits the Sony Tablet P in 'selected markets'
'Selected markets' can now download the Sony Tablet P Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update
Sony has announced you can now update your Tablet P device to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The update, which was originally rolled out to the Tablet S back in April, is now available in 'selected markets'. We've approached Sony for clarification on exactly what this means.
The Tablet P is clamshell tablet, which looks a little like the Nintendo DS handheld console. It has two screens and folds up, as you may have guessed, like a clamshell, protecting both screens from damage in the process.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich offers a number of improvements on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, including a much nicer layout, performance improvements and better multitasking.
Sony mentioned on its developer blog that both Sony tablets would benefit from new features, including direct access to SD card, 'small apps' and 'enhanced photo viewing options'.
If you've got a Sony Tablet P and you have been notified of the update, let us know - we're hoping the UK is included in the 'selected markets' list as the device could do with a bit of a helping hand.
In our review we said: 'You certainly won’t mistake it for an iPad clone, but the Sony Tablet P fails to convince any other level. It’s not ideal as a gaming platform, doesn’t play nice with many Android applications and has underwhelming battery stamina.'
