Xperia Tablet Z WiFi owners, the time has come for you to make the jump to Android 4.2.2. The latest firmware update, version 10.3.1.C.0.136, updates the six-month tablet to the next version of Jelly Bean and brings with it a slew of features worth salivating over, such as support for 64GB SD cards, and some that may be more subjective, such as the transition from a tablet UI to a phone UI. This means that the soft buttons (back, home, and recent) are now centered at the bottom of the screen, and the notification bar has been shifted to the top. Like the update that previously rolled out to the LTE version of the tablet, some elements of the UI still differ from that found on Nexus devices.
Here's the change log straight from Sony.
- Latest version of Sony Media Apps with seamless integrated services
- The my Xperia application that helps you find your phone and secure everything you have on it. Read more at myxperia.sonymobile.com
- New customisable navigation bar with quick settings
- New widget functionalities, both on lockscreen and homescreen
- Support for bigger (64GB) SD card so that you can store even more on your Xperia™ tablet Z.
- Multi-User function support
If you are the proud owner of an Xperia Tablet Z, you can get the update wirelessly or by plugging your tablet into a computer. And when you head over to Sony's support page, ignore the notice saying the latest available software is Android 4.0. This update will not downgrade your device.
