spring they said, but they have also heared that they are including goodies in their update and their ui. ive heard ms office could be coming to the tablet.
Interesting to see in this video the tablet S has what looks like the galaxy nexus ics wallpaper, http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DqCMH-dcY_o8%26feature%3Dplayer_embedded&feature=player_embedded&v=qCMH-dcY_o8&gl=GB
WTF - The Sony Tablet Evolution page has now started advertising 3rd party apps from the Android Market that has nothing to do with the Sony Tablet!
We just want to know when ICS is coming out or if there are any other updates available, please don't try to make yourselves look like you're actually doing something by putting on updates about useless apps that have nothing to do with Sony.
Is anyone from Sony actually reading this forum anymore? From the lack of activity around the Tablet S I suspect not. However, just in case....
A proper timeline around the 4.0 (ICS) update would be a very good start. Just saying 'in due course' is not very good. It commits you to nothing.
And perhaps letting us know when an update will be forthcoming to address things like the poor file transfer utility, the pooor DLNA support and (please!) some update on if you ever intend to let the Tablet S talk to the PS3 and act as a remote. Lots of people seem to have been mis-informed - ok, lied to - about this product by Sony sales people claiming it will be able to communicate with the PS3. Me included...
I know the Vita is probably getting all the love right now but you have a good product in this tablet and it feels like you are letting it commit suicide by giving it zilch in terms of support and development.I was proudly showing off in front of my Galaxy/iPad owning friends but without some love from Sony this tablet will quickly become redundant.
I have read the hold up could be down to google delaying the approval, it's worth noting that the Asus transformer only started to get ics last week and it was the first tablet to start shipping ics. They haven't given a date for when the UK will get the update though. I do agree though, it would be nice to get some more official input in the forum.
Rich - That may make some sense as that seems to be the same reason I've heard given for the delay on the Galaxy S2 rollout delays of ICS. Fingers crossed if Samsung and Asus ship their updates this month then Sony might be ready to follow suit. Here's hoping, cos I've heard some very good things about ICS!
Have just been to have a look at the tablet and really liked the look and feel of the tablet. All the reports are really good. The only thing stopping me from buying is the lack of ICS. Next stop will be ASUS.
SONY..... is any one there????
noticed a few reports on the net that Sony Japan have announced that they plan to release ICS v4.0.3 in late April..
Although not able to confirm that these reported new features will be included in the ICS release or wether they will make there way to the European version, some of the new features mentioned include..
Access to the Camera via the lock screen..
Ability to take panoramic photo's..
Option to edit photo's within the Gallery..
A downloadable “Recopla” app to view programs recorded from compatible Sony Blu-Rays players..
An addition of 'Small Apps' which seems to allow user to open a small browser, calculator, remote control window..
If you want to read about Sony ICS rumoured improvements yourself then do a search for Sony Tablet ICS..
