Wi-Fi version of Sony Xperia Tablet Z receives update to Android 4.3

Wi-Fi version of Sony Xperia Tablet Z receives update to Android 4.3
Those with the Wi-Fi only version of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z no longer need to be jealous of those with the cellular variant of the slate. The latter model has already received the Android 4.3 update. But now, the Wi-Fi only version of Sony's flagship slate has also received the update.The models involved are the SGP311 and SGP312 models, and brings the firmware up to 10.4.B.0.577. This is not an OTA update, so the tablet owner is going to have to sync his slate to his PC and use PC Companion or the Sony Update Service.

The 793MB update not only includes Android 4.3, it also includes a new home launcher, similar to the one on the Sony Xperia Z1. The update adds the Sony Smart Social camera, support for "Xperia Theme" and a new battery stamina mode. The latter allows you to increase the standby time of the battery by an incredible 400%. The update also supports the launch of multiple small apps and brings restricted profiles for multiple users.

The app shortcut on the top left of the screen has been removed by the update, possibly the only downside to the whole thing.

Why don't you compare it to a Samsung tablet that was released this year? Apart from the one's that came with 4.3!
