Although it has not been immensely popular among the users, it has done quite well overall.
The physical structure of the tablet is such that it can be “folded” and put in the pocket of the owner, which makes it the most travel friendly tablet on the scene.
Recently, Sony announced the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for this tablet which would be made available starting from May 24.
For the time being, however, the update would be available for the domestic users in Japan. As for the rest of the world, we are not sure when this update would be released.
As a part of this update, users would be able to enjoy the “small apps” feature, which allows the users to use other apps such as a calculator, in a small window above the main app that is being used.
This small window would not require closing the app running in the background.
So with this update, the multitasking capabilities of the tablet would be enhanced.
Another important update would be the ability to take snaps from the camera with the locked screen.
Previously, Sony had announced that both Sony tablets, Tablet P and Tablet S, would receive the Ice Cream Sandwich update in the month of April.
However, due to some unknown reason, only Tablet S could receive the ICS update while the update for Tablet P was delayed, and which has not been released.
An important thing to be noted is that Sony generally releases updates for its devices on same day for all the devices all over the world.
So even though the announcement says that the update is made available just for domestic users in Japan, you might want to manually check whether the update is also available for you, even if you are not in Japan.
