sony xperia tablet z aa back

Xperia Tablet Z owners should be happy to hear that Sony has released the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for the Wi-Fi version of the tablet, after having rolled out a similar update for the LTE model not too long ago.

The new update is live for the SGP311 and SGP312 Wi-Fi models, according to Xperia Blog, and will bring your firmware up to version 10.4.B.0.577.

In addition to Android 4.3 features, the update also includes various software additions for the tablet such as a new home launcher, the Sony Smart Social camera, “Xperia Theme” support, support for launching multiple Small Apps, and a new battery Stamina mode.

Unfortunately, the update, which measures a hefty 793MB according to the publication, is available only through PC Companion or the Sony Update Service, so don’t expect to download it over-the-air (OTA).


Naturally, Android 4.4 KitKat is what you’d probably want to have on your Xperia Tablet Z, but that’s not available just yet, at least not officially.

Have you updated your Xperia Tablet Z?

      It seems you need a Windows PC tool to update, the built-in firmware upgrade won’t work … I’m a bit miffed about this myself since I don’t have any Windows PC.

    Sony Updates are nice, I think my next phone is going to be a sony since ive had the worst update experience i’ve ever had on my samsung galaxy note 2.
    and you lot complaining in the comments about updates, Samsung cant even keep their flagships updated so count yourselfs lucky.
