Pay attention to the name Dan Rosenberg, it's one that you're going to want to know for the future. He's the guy who brought us root for the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, and now he's back with a root method for the Sony Tablet S. His blog post on how he figured out the exploit is an absolutely fascinating read, albeit quite technical. Even if you don't understand the post in its entirety, you can still appreciate the genius at work to construct such a clever exploit.

The official Google TV Team's Twitter revealed earlier this evening that Sony has begun releasing an update for Google TV devices. Evidently, the update includes performance enhancements for Chrome (chiefly concerning start-up time), and the ability to watch 3D Blu-ray movies.

If you're the owner of a Sony GoogleTV, the ~260MB update should be automatically rolling out any time now, but just in case yours hasn't shown up yet, you can go to System Settings > About > System Updates and pull the update manually.

Sony unveiled a couple of new handsets at CES this week - one for the US market (Xperia Ion) and one for the international market (Xperia S). Both are powerful devices and should be the first to be released under the Sony name (not Sony Ericsson), and the latter is now available for pre-order from Clove UK for £467.99 with an expected release at the beginning of March.

We stopped by the Sony booth earlier this morning at CES, and got some hands-on time with the very first Sony smartphones (Sony-Ericsson is no more, subject to regulatory approval) - the Xperia Ion and the Xperia S. While these devices were designed before the Sony Ericsson breakup, they'll be marketed as Sony devices when they hit retail channels.

First up is the Xperia Ion, announced a couple of days ago by AT&T.

Seems Sony’s making good on its promise to keep churning out Google TV devices – in fact, the company just introduced not one, but two such gadgets.

As of now, we don’t have tech specs for either of the duo, but what we do know is what you see above: both the NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray player (on the left) and the NSZ-GS7 set-top box (on the right) look splendid, and both have seriously overcomplicated names.

We've been hearing about the Sony Nozomi for a few weeks now, and Sony just officially unveiled the device at CES. it will be known simply as the Xperia S, and shares most of the same guts as the Xperia Ion (announced earlier today), including a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 12MP Exmor R camera, NFC, and Android 2.3.x (will be upgraded to ICS). Unlike the Ion, however, the Xperia S has a smaller 4.3-inch display, though it's still rocking a 1280x720 resolution.

The leaker also took the time to grab some screenshots of Quadrant's System Information screen, along with a quite impressive benchmark.

Following up on the success of our 404 design and banner design contests, we've decided to run another creative giveaway, graciously sponsored by NVIDIA and Philips. Personally, I think the creative contests are always the best - we get beautiful graphic assets and designs, and our talented readers get a platform on which to showcase their skills and creative abilities. Besides all that, looking through the entries is always a good time.
