To celebrate the arrival of ICS, Sony offers a free cradle and a $50 rebate with the Tablet S
Great news to all of you Sony Tablet S owners, that’s because you’re finally getting your piece of the pie in the form of a software update. Well, this isn’t your typical bugfix one, instead, it’s one that brings Sony’s PlayStation certified tablet up to snuff with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

After an exhaustive wait, owners will be able to feast upon the bountiful features available with the most up-to-date version of the platform. So how do you get in with it? Specifically, you should see a notification hitting the tablet, and from there, it can be downloaded over Wi-Fi. Interestingly enough, the update also brings forth some exciting additions that enhances the tablet’s worth – such as the usual set of performance improvements, single motion panoramic photo mode, direct access to the SD card, an enhanced locked screen, and much more.

To celebrate the arrival of Ice Cream Sandwich, Sony has decided to throw in a $50 mail-in-rebate with the purchase of the Tablet S. Meaning, it’ll bring the cost of the 16GB version of the tablet to a mere $349 after the rebate, which is decent  considering all other available options in the market. Adding some spice to the mix, they're also throwing in a free cradle accessory with the purchase.

Now that the Sony Tablet S is enjoying ICS to the max, would you consider picking up after the price drop? Or would you still invest your hard earned money into something else newer?
