Sony has released a new firmware update for the Sony Xperia Tablet S. The firmware update (release6b) adds SDXC memory card support (64GB/128GB). The update is still based on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich and has the same kernel. The update is around 330MB in size and should be available now.

Thanks @poke612!

    I have been using a 64gb SDXC card since I purchased the Xperia Tablet S back in October… So what does the update do if I could already address that amount of memory?

    There is somethnig really funny about this update:
    1. I have been using a 64GB ever since I bought the XTablet S, so there is nothing new.
    2. The update is 352MB, which is the size for the whole firmware, compared to 20MB update previously.
    Sure, there must be something Sony has not told us.

  • Xperia User

    I had noticed the size of the update as well, and made a comment about the fact that I have had a 64gb SDXC installed since I purchased my Xperia Tablet S in October. But I have not recieve an answer yet. :O/
