Sony Xperia phones, Tablet S, P getting updated to ICS this spring

Sony Xperia phones, Tablet S, P getting updated to ICS this spring
Sony is planning on updating its Sony Tablet P and Tablet S at around the same time it’s going to update its Xperia lineup to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. That is, this spring, according to sources quoted by TheVerge.

Additionally, Sony will bring "some really cool unique bits" to spice up ICS, and this holds true especially for the company’s slates. 

The two tablets, Tablet P and S, are already being tested with ICS deployed on them, but Sony is not getting more details except for the vague spring release date. We’d still wait for an official confirmation from the company rather than take this as 100% certain, but the update seems imminent and spring is a good bet. 

Have you purchased a tablet by Sony? Could ICS lure you into purchasing one? Chime in with your opinions below.

the tablet S's successor with fill HD bravia screen and a quad core will be one sweet piece of kit.

It is a very cool phone, I for one want to try out the Audio feature. Sound is important to me, if I can change the way it sounds it can be so much better than any phone. And that Camera! finally more than 8MP!!! Can’t wait!! Here is another video explaining the Xperia Shttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyOTIsSm4Nc
