Many tablet manufacturers as well as smart phone vendors are releasing operating system updates for their users. Sony has also announced on their plans to bring out the new firmware upgrade for their Tablet S and Tablet P models.
This is very welcoming news for those who have made the purchase recently during Christmas and for the existing Sony users. The company officials said that the Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich update is in the making but did not offer a clear word on when it will be released. A software development kit for Tablet P has been launched recently though.
Both these tablets are very cutting edge and packs in a lot of features. But comparatively Tablet S has a small upper hand over the other. Sony Tablet S has a screen size of 9.4 inches. It packs in a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. The tablet is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor that packs in a clock speed of 1 GHz. The user can opt for either the 16 GB or 32 GB internal memory versions. Its external memory can be increased to about 32 GB by the addition of a microSD card.
The main camera is of 5 mega pixels. The camera can record videos with a resolution of 720 p and at a speed of 30 frames per second. The secondary camera in the front is of 0.3 mega pixel. It is mainly meant for video chatting as well as for taking self portraits. Presently the tablet comes installed with Android 3.1 operating system.
On the other hand Tablet P features a very unique clam shell form factor. The device features two screens and each has a screen size of 5.5 inches. The screens pack in a resolution of 1024 x 480 pixels. This tablet is also powered by the same Tegra 2 dual core processor from NVIDIA. The internal memory capacity is only 4 GB. Its external memory can also be increase by the addition of microSD type memory cards. This tablet currently runs on Android 3.2 operating system.
The tablets are very efficient and powerful as it is so when it is coupled either the new Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich operating system the device can work wonders. We can hope that Sony won’t delay the updates much and will make it available by the beginning of next year.
