Very good news for the Sony Tablet S, Sony Tablet P and Sony Xperia Tab users; now you can update Sony Tablet S with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The Android tablets made by Sony are of very good quality. That is why these tablets are very popular around the world. The Sony Tablet S has two versions – the Wi-Fi only version and the 3G version. This tablet has a 9.4 inches screen with 800 x 1280 pixels resolution. The tab is powered by a dual core Tegra A9 processor assisted by 1 GB of RAM. There is also a ULP GPS GPU too. Overall, this tablet is very much capable of running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Sony Tablet P has a smaller 5.5 inches screen with a screen resolution of 1024 x 480. Lower resolution makes it more powerful than Sony Tablet S with similar hardware. Sony Xperia Tab is better than these two.

This updating will be done using a small program developed by XDA senior member Condi. It will update the Sony tablet automatically to Jelly Bean. It is just single click update. This is the simplest way of updating your Sony Tablet S with Android Jelly Bean. No, need to do copying or recovering anything.

      Do all guys writing technical articles just copy the content from one another ?

      This is just copy/paste without any inquiry nor test.

      It is not possible to put Jelly Bean on a Sony Tablet S (the first version, don't know for Xperia).
