simply there, so I would like to know how big (MB) the update is. I have to reset my wifi connection constantly. By the way the tablet is simply great. Hopefully sony can fix the wifi-issue soon. Thanks in advance.
sony tab s reality, 18 Jun 2012Pros. -screen is far better than competitors. it is comparable to the newly launched ipad 3... moreI am also loving this tablet. But, be realistic about the battery life. Its not 9-10 hrs with heavy usage but 5-6 hrs. Yes, stanby time with minimal usage can offcourse go upto 9-10 hrs. I do not see any major/unmanageable issues. Yes, weak wifi signal could be an issue. But, even with that I am able to browse well sitting in another room. My laptop shows full wifi signal strength whereas the tablet shows at an average 50% signal strength.
I did the up grade to ICS, and I did not see much of a change. Love the avalibity of using it in the yard still connected to to internet. Very cool. I installed the avengers active desktop, but find it kills the battery quickly.
I hav sony tab S...i recieved a notification for system update...and yes it was ics 4.0.3 for which i was waiting from so long...So finally sony tab S with Ics 4.0.3 in india.
Its very good but very cheap.can anyone tell me the costliest mobile than this.
This device is amazing.I'd rather like to download apps from 4shared.com .Speed is better than other devices.Also the screen is smooth to use.
James Xget, 06 May 2012the USB port can use for conenct usb devices? eg:keyboard? SD card only for data storrage?You can connect keyboards and mice to the USB port with an adapter (since the USB port is a micro-USB)
Ziza, 05 May 2012I'll do it as soon as it is available in my region (still not). However, I've found out there... moresince the upgrade to ICS my wifi connection has dropped down. Locations in home where I always had a signal are now intermittent. Sony says this is news to them! Obviously something changed that impacts the wifi capability.

However, I've found out there'll be a bunch of new and welcome features. For me the most important ones (that I know are there) are:
1. Automatic folder creation
2. Direct access to external SD by all (Sony) applications (most of 3rd party ones had it already)
3. (3-D) Swipe panorama
4. Improved wifi signal strength
I do not need anything more (even though there might be some)... except perhaps improving a bit on booting time...

Bought this sony tablet and returned it next day. Bad Tablet although I love sony products. Ipad is way better.
-most android apps and games won't fit the bigger screen.
-external storage is only for transfering files.
-very difficult and costy to connect the tablet to the tv.
The only pro is the price relative to competitors such as samsung and apple :)
-screen is far better than competitors. it is comparable to the newly launched ipad 3.
-battery life is good, it will last 9-10 hours for straight heavy usage and 10-15 hours for medium usage.
-sound quality is excellent both speaker and headphone. Sony makes the best in audio for Tablet S by putting Equalizer, dynamic normalizer, xloud and clear phase whick makes sound better than competitors
-built and design is good compare to same looking tablet in the market. The design is stunning and make difference to the tablet market and you can easily recognize that the tablet is SONY brand because of design
-key board is better than stock keyboard and free keyboard in play shop. but hoping to for update to do like ipad that you can separate keys on both side for easy typing in portrait and landscape mode.
-gps navigation is good and accurate
-rear camera is good in rich light and average in low light. but i hope they will update the interface because it really hard to take picture for yourself using rear camera. i hope they will put touch to capture.
-hd video quality is good in day light and below average in low light. But the quality is good and clear if you throw it to TV via DNLA.
- user experience is excellent it looks like your using non android tablet because SONY add better and awesome tweak for user experience.
-original Sony music application interface is excellent by adding good and awesome graphics.
-wifi network is very weak, it disconnect itself if most of the time. hoping this problem will fixed for ICS update.
-front camera is below average because its vga and very poor performance in low light.
-very few application in Play Store is not supported and very few compatible games by gameloft. (thanks to PS Suite for the back up games content)
im happy with my tablet and this device is recommendable for those who want non-apple tablet.
