Sony has announced Android 4.2.2 update for the Xperia Tablet Z which it claims will bring about some significant changes to the tablet device. The update though is only applicable to the Wi-Fi version of the tablet. The update will also be important for the prospects of the tablet that already can be counted among the best out there. Launched in early 2013, the tablet started out with Android 4.1. That will be bumped up to Android Jelly Bean version 4.2.2 while the system build version will be 10.3.1.A.0.244 post the update that itself is considered quite hefty at 786 mb.
Among the changes that the update is set to introduce include changes to the user interface. The notification bar will be shifted to the top of the display from the current bottom slot. This will be more akin to what users get to have on android smartphones. The three notification buttons that have so far been sitting along the sides will now be aligned more towards the center. These changes will make the user interface in line with what most tablets running Android 4.2.2 have to offer.
Among the other features that the update brings along include multi user feature, new widget functions of home screen and lock screen, a navigation bar that is customizable, support for microSD card of up to 64 GB and lot’s more.
The official notifications are now being sent though those who are yet to come across any can check for the update manually. For that, one has to go to Settings Menu and to Systems Update to check for the upgrade.
As for the device itself, the Xperia Tablet Z is already among the better Android tablets in the market if not the best. The tablet comes with a 10.1 inch full HD display and is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip coupled to a 2 GB RAM. The device is extremely handy and convenient to use, what with it being among the slimmest tablets currently available.
