To all users having the wifi issue in this tablet.. Download advanced wifi lock.. mine has the wifi-disconnection-when-locked-issue.. the advanced wifi lock (which is available in the google play store) helped me fix the issue... Other than that this device is astounding!.. I just hope sony will fix an update to Android 4.1 jelly bean cause it will be REALLY disappointing if they stop on ICS..
Got one a couple of days back,and I should tell my confidence in sony is just growing from the k series to the P1i to this beauty,i have a htc hd 2 for 2 yrs and now having it rooted to android gb and so dint have time to try xperia series,but recent addition is this beauty and Im just relishing it still..
Wifi connected on day one and instantly ICS update was available and did it in no time,but it was a 170mb file and it took no more than 15-20 minutes on my phone s wi fi router with airtel 3g.. Issues with wi fi seems very negligible and every other wifi connection I ve used so far has dat and so its nothing wrong..
Other sd card reading only all crap is solved by ics update,my system updates itself with the contents of the microsd card I tested with a sd card adapter..
Form design screen jus awesome.
Front vga cam useless,yeah but yet to use skype so cant tell now..
Back cam n vdos are great..
Apps are a little low in no,yeah but given the potential of android it will definitely grow and im ready to wait..
The inbuilt remote control and dlna seems to be added advantage..
Have to order a 32 GB micro sd card soon for all my precious stuff..
Will update soon after I test all features..

sony tab s reality, 14 Apr 2012Pros. -screen is far better than competitors. it is comparable to the newly launched ipad 3... moreThe rest i like except i cant even see my own face while skyping at nite in my room..my room light is quite bright and still cant see myself..this is very frustrating..
raj, 21 Jun 2012The file is 200 MB and once upgraded, cannot be reversed to previous android version.Raj, many thanks for the info. On sony´s website you can read that you must have at least 80MB available. Well I will consider the 200MB you said. Space is not a problem. The problem is my wi-fi connection. With some files I have to restart the download when the connection fails. That can be very annoying. And of course I know, every update to the system cannot be reverted. Have a nice day.

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, 14 Apr 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, 20 Apr 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, 02 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...
