Android 4.0 hitting the Sony Tablet S.

Today Sony has come out and announced that they have released the Android 4.0 update for the Sony Tablet S. With this update you get the usual set of ICS updates and optimisations, but Sony also have a special treat for us Tablet S owners too!

Sony has given the Tablet S a more desktop-style experience with the ability to bring some apps up as separate ‘small app’ windows. You can pin, minimize, maximize and dismiss apps as and when you need to. The Calculator, Browser and Remote control apps are amongst the apps which have these features already, and hopefully there is some more that can do this neat trick too! Other than this quite interesting addition all you’re getting is a dose of very close to stock ICS.


I have been repeatedly clicking ‘check for update’ on my Tablet S, but haven’t had anything yet! Have you guys got your update? Let us know in the comments below. And don’t forget to check out the Forum!

    Bit of a coincidence, my Acer Iconia A500 has updated to 4.0.3 today as well! you wait months for an ICS upodate to come along, then two come at the same time!

    • I heard the A100 got it’s update as well, you have to give it to Acer they have a tonne of tablets out but they manage to update them all relatively quickly!
