All Sony tablets are expected to be updated to Android 4.0 by the end of May
A few days ago, Sony Tablet P owners got the good news that they will be getting a new software update that brings forth Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but it was unclear if all versions of the tablet would be seeing it simultaneously.

Well people, there’s good news in the fact that Sony confirmed that every single one of its tablets will be getting an over-the-air update to the beloved and most up-to-date version of the platform by the end of May. Specifically, it means that all tablets in ALL regions will be getting it – as opposed to certain markets seeing it first, then others later.

Needless to say, this should appease those Sony tablet owners throughout the world still running Honeycomb, but even better, it’s nice to see a player in the Android landscape making such a commitment. In all seriousness, it’s a great gesture from Sony, as some other companies don’t provide concrete dates with software updates. But even then, they're normally pushed out in stages as some markets see it very early on – while others wait an eternity.

So what can those Honeycomb trotting Sony tablet owners expect with this one? For starters, it’ll bring forth all of the conveniences and features found with ICS. Additionally, the update will bring a panoramic camera mode, updated gallery viewer with SD card access, and some new enhancements to the web browser.

Since I upgraded my Sony Tablet to ICS, Lag is completely GONE. The small apps are one of the most innovative multi-tasking applications I ever saw. ICS Gallery is much better and direct SD card files is a joy. I won't be changing my Sony Tablet anyyyytime soon.

Does it run videos on youtube any smoother? As mine is still on Honeycomb and seems a bit laggy when loading and watching videos, thanks!
