Sony Tablets Will Get ICS Update Alongside Xperia Phones
Sony Ericsson (back then, now just Sony) brought the news on September 8 to the world that its entire 2011 Xperia line-up will receive Ice Cream Sandwich updates. While there isn’t an exact roll-out date — some imply March — it is safe to expect the new ROMs this Spring.
Together with the Xperia phone line-up Sony is also preparing to update its current tablets, the Sony Tablet S and Tablet P, to the latest iteration of Android. These tablets are reportedly already running test ICS code and the final bits will be rolled-out this spring.
Speaking of the Sony tablets, it looks like they managed to steal the show, at least for the month of October. The two devices sold in numbers that represent 26% of the U.K. market in October, according to a company spokesman cited by The Telegraph. The key to success? Sony’s tablets “usually retails for similar or slightly lower prices than its rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab”.
