The Xperia Link application, which we previously reported on at the end of August, has now been released onto the Google Play Store. The app is designed to easily tether your Sony tablet with your Sony Xperia smartphone to receive an internet connection.
We’re still not sure of the benefits of this dedicated app versus using the ‘Portable Wi-Fi hotspot’ feature. To use Xperia Link you will need to make sure the app is on both the tablet and phone. The link can be remotely turned on and off from the tablet directly, without using the phone. However, Bluetooth needs to always be on during use for this work. See a video of it in action below.
