How to update Sony Xperia Tablet S to Android 4.1.1

Sony Xperia Tablet S 01

A few weeks ago we told you about the update of one of the most important devices in the Sony Mobile catalog . And it is that already in April, the owners of the Sony Xperia Tablet S began to receive the data package corresponding to Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean) . Now, after a few months, the device is preparing to receive the second version of this update. The same one that brings with it different improvements and corrections to errors inherited from this first edition. One of the most important, without a doubt, is the one that will allow users to solve the problem of the clock that prevents correct synchronization content, plus many other improvements that will increase the good performance of the tablet.

The update for this Sony Xperia Tablet S will not allow users to switch to Android 4.2 or Android 4.3 . Nothing is further from reality. In this case, we are only faced with a second release of Android 4.1.1 firmware (Jelly Bean) that solves the problem that we indicated with the clock, but also includes improvements in the preview window of the camera application and offers users the ability to play all kinds of content through Sony's own Video Unlimited service .
