Sony rolls out Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 for tablet S

Sony has become the latest firm to roll out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) update for its tablet computer.

The upgrade for the Sony Tablet S will bring a range of new features to the device, although it will only be available in the US initially.

A Sony blog post read: "The next time you connect to Wi-Fi, your Sony Tablet S should prompt you to do a system update, just click OK to download, and in a few minutes you should be ready to go on Android 4.0."

ICS will add new home screen actions, access to Google's Chrome browser and a range of other features.

However, the technology firm has not given any indication whether the Tablet P will get the ICS update.

Sony recently started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for its 2011 Xperia smartphones, which will be available for the Sony Xperia Arc S, Xperia Neo V and Xperia Ray devices.
