As each week passes we are finally seeing more mobile devices on the Android platform being upgraded to the latest version of the operating system, and the team on Phones Review try to keep our readers informed with all the latest information about the software. Today we have news that the Sony Tablet P Android 4.0 ICS update is arriving for some users.
About a month we go we told you that the update was due at anytime, but it seems there was a small delay in getting the software out to devices, while the tablets bigger brother the Tablet S begun receiving the software upgrade back in April. An article over at Phandroid is reporting that Sony has announced the availability of the Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system for some markets.
The unusual clam shell Tablet P mirrors the form factor of a Nintendo DS handheld games console more than your average tablet PC, and the device was launched running Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Once users have downloaded the new operating system they will be greeted with a user interface that has a much nicer layout than previously.
Users will also experience some performance improvements along with better multitasking, and Sony has added some of its own enhancements as well. These were mentioned on the company’s developer blog and include users having direct access to the SD card, small apps and enhanced photo viewing options.
Sony said that ‘selected markets’ would be getting the update now, but unfortunately there is no word on which markets were actually receiving it. If you have the Sony Tablet P you can check for the update via the ‘About ‘menu that is found in settings to see if Android 4.0 is available to download and install.
