Sony recently posted some good news for Tablet S and Tablet P owners, confirming that the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update will indeed be rolling out to both devices. The news was posted in Sony UK’s community forums, but the company hasn’t confirmed yet when this update will arrive.
Both devices feature unique form factors with the Tablet S being a 10-inch device that resembles a folded back magazine while the Tablet P sports a smaller more pocketable clam shell design. Both devices come with a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
We’ve heard real minuscule nigh the two devices since actuation, but it’s discriminating to see that Sony is works activity both slates and that its bespoken programme hasn’t reserved a platform advance suchlike it has for Samsung’s Beetleweed S and Coltsfoot Tab.
Samsung has revealed that its Galaxy S smartphone and Galaxy Tab 7-inch tablet will not be getting the latest Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. The company explained that the devices could not be updated due to hardware limitations that would not be able to run the new Android platform alongside Samsung’s custom TouchWiz user interface.
The explanation, however, seems inconsistent since the Android 4.0 update is already being rolled out to Samsung’s Nexus S, which features similar internal hardware. The Galaxy S packs the same 1GHz Hummingbird processor and enough memory for ICS.
Hence, what’s really preventing the ICS update is Samsung’s custom TouchWiz interface and a host of other “experience enhancing” software that already take up a lot of resources. Although the hardware is the same, the Nexus S, unlike the Galaxy S, does not need to deliver TouchWiz, carrier services, video calling software, and mobile TV.

This week’s CTIA festivities aren’t the same since Samsung and Google decided to postpone their new product announcement that was originally scheduled for today, but now we’re hearing the Ice Cream Sandwich / Nexus party has already been rescheduled.
An inside source tells us the two have moved their plans for the Unpacked event to October 19th in Hong Kong (interested US residents should clear out the evening of Tuesday the 18th, time zones), timed to coincide with the AsiaD: All Things Digital event there next week. Naturally, we’ll be in the house, but with not long to go before the potential date, we’d expect to hear something concrete soon.
