Good news for anyone who bought one of the recent Sony Android tablets - namely the Tablet P and Tablet S - the update to Android 4.0 should be coming your way next month. The update will not only bring all of the benefits that ICS has to offer, but also a feature that will allow Tablet users to access and watch programs they've recorded on their compatible Sony Blu-Ray recorder.

Also included in the update is a new feature called Small Apps, which is quite similar to Samsung's Mini-Apps on its Galaxy Tab series. Included in the Small Apps micro-suite is a floating calculator, remote control, and a browser window that will run on top of other windows, offering a true multi-tasking experience.

The update is tentatively slated to begin rolling out at the end of April.

    Hey hey hey, wait a minute! When I translated the Sony Press release to English with Google Chrome, it said something like "Software is free of charge via the Internet from late May four ※ 2 can be downloaded" , not April!
    What is this?

    Am very happy with the S. Sony do need to allow screen rotation to all four sides. They marketed the design as having a better weight distribution, but you can only watch in landscape mode with the heaviest part of the device at the top. This really doesnt make sense and is easy to Code fix!!!
