Sony Releases Xperia Tablet S Firmware, Fixes VPN Problems

It may be a minor update, but it could fix some problems people have been having

Sony's Xperia Tablet S runs the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, as well as Kernel version 2.6, which means that many are waiting for Jelly Bean to be delivered.

Alas, the newest firmware update that Sony has released for the device does not make that wish come true.

It is actually a fairly minor update actually, of 17 MB. All it does is fix an error returned by the VPN connector (virtual private network).

To access the update, users need to navigate to the “Settings” menu and the “About Tablet” section.

On the one hand, since VPN is sparsely used, most owners probably don't need it. On the other hand, 17 MB are easy enough to download and install.

Either way, VPN is not nearly as big a concern as the discovery, back in October, that there was a physical defect associated with the water resistance. Fortunately, the design has since been corrected.
