Sony Tablet S and Tablet P getting Android 4.0 update in the Spring

Sony Tablet S and Tablet P getting Android 4.0 update in the SpringDespite their originality, Sony's Tablet S and Tablet P haven't exactly been flying off the shelves since going on sale a few months ago.

But Sony is getting ready to crank up the tablet heat and has revealed that they're both on track to receive a bunch of new features come the Spring, as well as an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

It's nearly a year now since Sony was named alongside Amazon as one of the very few companies that could cause a real disruption and shatter the iPad's seemingly unbreakable stranglehold on the tablet market.

That hasn't really happened, of course, despite both of Sony's Android tablet offerings being among the most innovative slates around, rather than iPad-mimicking me-too devices.

According to TechRadar, however, Sony has revealed that both are being lined up to receive an update bringing among other things Microsoft Office compatibility to the tablet duo.

Not only that, but Sony has confirmed they're also in line to be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich alongside the company's Xperia smartphone line in the spring.

Will it be enough to kick-start Sony's tablet ambitions and start eating into the iPad's lead? Throw in a price drop and a couple of new models and it just might.

I think the P is out, there was one on display at the Dixons/Currys Duty free shop in Heathrow anyway.

I quite like the idea of a foldable tablet, however I think id want the price to drop and the idea to be refined a bit more before i would want to buy in tbh
