Sony has announced plans to roll out a software update for the Sony Tablet P starting May 24th. The update will bring Android 4.0 to the dual-screen tablet, as well as Sony’s “small apps” feature which lets you run a handful of apps in small windows without first minimizing the app you were using.
The update will roll out to Japanese customers on the 24th. It’s not clear yet whether it will be available internationally on the same day.
Sony had initially promised to release Android 4.0 for both of its Android tablets in April. But while the Sony Tablet S update was ready to go right on schedule, the update for the dual-screen Sony Tablet P has been pushed back a few times.
The Sony Tablet P is an unusual tablet with two 5.5 inch, 1024 x 480 pixel displays. You can fold it up like a laptop… or a Nintendo DS.
It has a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor and currently ships with Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb. It’s a PlayStation certified device, which means you can download and run some classic PSOne games on the tablet.
The Sony Tablet P is available from the Sony Store for $549.99.
