The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is, hardware-wise, probably the best looking and most attractive Android tablet currently on the market. Software-wise, the thin slab of glass and metal has been slightly behind the curve, but that’s changing.
According to Xperia Blog, some users of the of the LTE version of the Xperia Tablet Z (model number SGP321) have reported the availability of the update to Android 4.2.2, which brings the build version to 10.3.1.A.0.244, similar to Sony’s 2013 flagships. Here are a couple screenshots from users who already got the update:
The update for the Wi-Fi versions apparently hasn’t started yet, but judging from Sony’s known MO, they should follow soon.
Another change is the move (or possibly removal) of the Small Apps button, which opens up Sony’s collection of productivity apps, from its previous position in the top bar.
For now, details are limited but we’ll keep you posted as more information emerges.
