Sony Tablet S And P To Get Ice Cream Sandwich In Spring, Become PlayStation Certified

Sony has previously confirmed that its two tablets, the uniquely book-shaped Tablet S and the dual-screened Tablet P, are definitely going to get updates to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, we only didn’t know when. Now The Verge and TechRadar have gotten some new and slightly more specific information regarding the timing, which is apparently going to be this spring.

Currently being tested internally, the Ice Cream Sandwich update will also come with “some really cool unique bits”, presumably including support for Microsoft Office files and, more notably, the PS3 controller. With the Tablet S becoming PlayStation certified, you’d be able to play games with the Sixaxis controller of the PlayStation 3 instead of those annoying on-screen controls. Of course, this would only work with special PlayStation-compatible Android games, similar to those found for the Xperia Play – if it turns out to be true, that is.

Update: Turns out support for the PS3 controller has been added in an earlier update already. Thanks to Bojanglez and viochemist for pointing out!

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...

Google To Launch Next Gen Android One On July 14

The first gen of Android One devices to be launched in India in September 2014 were decent starter smartphones, featuring budget specs and a promise of fast updates.
