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.
