Xperia Tablet Z PTCRBNow that the Sony Xperia Z (C660X) and Xperia ZL (C650X) have got their Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware, it looks like Sony is turning its attention to the Xperia Tablet Z. The PTCRB website shows that firmware build 10.3.A.0.407 was recently certified for the LTE version of the Xperia Tablet Z (SGP321). We already know that the 10.3.A.X.XXX structure relates to Android 4.2.2 so it could mean Xperia Tablet Z owners are just a few weeks away from the update.

    Finally they speed up their update ^^
    What else can Sony hater say this time???????

  • Anzilleo Kristello Mozihim

    This is good news for me.

  • Ace

    4.2? LOL :D

  • The Loyalist

    I played with it this last weekend! Very smooth! It was the final version but with dev sofware installed.

  • The Loyalist

    You cannot have 4.2.2 on Xperia S. Driver issues with Qualcomm…Only 4.1.2 for XS

  • PowerSonic

    Looks like a carrier specific update..

  • Alberto Federico Turelli

    Any news about SGP311/312 updates?

  • Anon

    Did it differ from the Xperia Z/ZL software?

  • Anon

    For the past update or two on SGP311, it seems like they used SGP321 to certify all firmware for all versions.

  • Alberto Federico Turelli

    Thank you!

  • The Loyalist

    It’s a tablet software so it’s a bit different so you cannot compare! I can only compare to 4.1.2 on Tablet Z. No big differences but really smooth.

  • KubsiJack

    Samsung ? S3 preparing to 4.2.2 and Xperia S is fixing bugs 4.1.2. I am not a Sony fanboy !

    Sony is my favorite cause of its brand name, but they at HQ are headless dicks. Why?
    Xperia Z lacks of camera shutter button
    Xperia Z Ultra lacks of LED LIGHT !!!
    LED has very much purposes based just on LIGHT! from flashlight to camera flash etc very helpful. I
    They gone retard with their sale strategy.. dumbed out of cosmos to be funny.

    Z have 13mpx while ultra only 8 WTH? I wanted ultra but when i read about lack of led, put it up in your ass! gone wrong lane.

    X10 was cream, had everything in the time (except fast updates) great camera.
    Arc too plastic but after all nice
    Play weak hardware and shit analogs, no psm worldwide etc (i wanted xPlay at beginning)
    S mine choice very good everything except fast updates and “dot buttons” under screen. Love my transparent bar.
    T too little upgrade, but bought it for my brother
    Z is pure love without shutter button
    Z ultra nice also but lack of led cannot pass.. worse camera? that sounds like “ultra” joke

    Xperia SP in my sight but lack of quad and fast updates. Im looking at iPhone cause they do not cut any thing to make bigger money, at this matter sony strategy is disgusting..

    what will be missing in coming phones?
    20mpx model will miss volume rocker button? or miss hd voice? or miss walkman app! im getting mad thinking what it will miss.

  • ray

    what about sp

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    Well written, Arc had no front facing camera, the NXT series phone had no expandable memory. The list goes on. I like the design of Sony phones, minimalist interface etc. but their special efforts to omit one feature every time for a product they release is baffling.

  • Yusuf

    Are you serious?

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Don’t forget the Vga front cam of ZR.

  • Herman

    Anti Sony guys used to say Sony ‘has the worst SoCs’ and that they ‘don’t update their devices in time’.

    I believe there’s just no reason to hate Sony anymore :)

  • Jhonbert Magana

    The Xperia ray was the one with almost complete feature of it’s generation.

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Fix the remaining bugs! Specially those major ones. And no, I’m not a Sony hater.

  • Jhonbert Magana

    ^ This.

  • fabrice91

    My Xperia Tablet S is 6 month old, I bought it when it just released and so, what news about 4.2.2 on it ???

  • kossmann

    no 3G/4G/LTE… no cert required

  • rus_media

    6 months mean soon to them

  • Uvindu

    Will Android 4.2 come to Xperia ?

  • The Loyalist

    yes! Qualcomm does not release 4.2.2 drivers for older SoC….

  • SonyFan

    Shut up and buy plastic phone with crappy touchwiz and crappy design…

  • Purnama

    what bugs?

    Xperia P owner, mine no bugs since GB…

  • Alaa

    Sony Now change in support for flag ship and new tablet

    I love U Sony

  • Jhonbert Magana

    Then you are lucky. Check sony mobile forum for more info about those bugs. I’m Xperia S owner.

  • ShinOrochiX

    To be honest I think that only the 2013 devices will eventually get 4.2.2, I just don’t see Sony updating the 2012 devices above 4.1.2, they probably will only receive bug fixes.

  • Udnivu

    Which one?

  • Abdulrahman Yousef

    he didn’t say anything wrong. why r u mad ?

  • Josh96

    I think the T, TX, V will get 4.2.2.

  • SonyFan

    cos samsung s3 4.1.2 is not compareable with the xperia s 4.1.2…
    small apps,sony ui(lockscreen,launcher…), media apps
    and i’ve read that 4.2.2 will come to s3 in september…
    custom roms for xperia s are better…(aosp from sony,source code and of course doomlord :D)

  • SonyFan

    yes it will

  • yuskhayru

    i think that was the main idea of the hq, and that was a marketing strategy for us(the customer) to keep buying thier device. its our choice for not to buy if its not worth.

  • (C):stem

    Is there a chance that SONY releases Android 4.2 for Xperia S, T, V and even P? Or will they keep that silly policy of releasing just one big update to their devices?

    I really hope they change their mind and update all the possible phones they can. Android 4.2 is not very different than 4.1, engineers can do a good job working on this update for 2012 devices and finally achieving the excellence…
    …Or, they may decide to deprecate 2012 line and here we go, hate comments will full this blog again.

  • iDroid

    T and V probably yes, S and P I don’t think so. :/

  • Gitarooman

    not headless dicks, they do what they can to make each device unique on its own without pissing off all the early adopters especially when they all coming out so close to each other. Another reason is the compromises they made for certain design choice. They try to make the ZU the slimmest phone, camera sensor and flash has to cut back.

  • Gitarooman

    Here in Canada we are only just getting JB 4.1.2 for the S3 and no word for 4.2.2.

  • Anon

    The Xperia S and P have had 3 versions of the OS each.

    How many more do you want? That is more than adequate.

    It’s like buying the HTC Dream and expecting 4.2.2.

  • Cristi13

    S3 has always been a better phone than xperia s, maybe not because of the hardware, but samsung knew ho to take care of it (and fast too). Let the downvotes begin, shall we

  • Cristi13

    I wonder what is sony deffinition of “soon”.

  • (C):stem

    is that information confirmed or not? I see nothing official, mah friend.

  • Purnama

    yeah.. every post are full of bugs report… and in xperia p forum too…

  • http://forum.xda-developers.com/member.php?u=2926289 Jasonwsc

    I can’t care less, since I don’t Skype on my phone or take selfies. But it might be an issue for some.

  • Ayush Kashyap

    hope they roll out 4.2.2 for Xperia SP soon !!

  • Kiran Pasupuleti

    As much as I know, Qualcomm has not released the necessary binaries required for 4.2.2 for Xperia S & P. Not sure if it is still possible to update them even if Sony would like to.

  • kossmann

    Is Multi-User-Support included ???

  • Rob

    It was released like 10+ months ago..

  • Rob

    I don’t imagine many people just go and post there saying everything works fine :P

  • The Loyalist

    Yes, you can login with 2 different accounts

  • kossmann

    but this is not the Sony-guest-mode, this is a REAL Multi-User-Support (from Android 4.2) – right? So i could login with 5 different accouts, if i want to ;-)

  • Ben Solomon

    Happy the update is here but sadly I can’t update my Xperia z because Sony bridge for Mac does not work.

  • Anon

    Sent Sony Mobile GB a message on their Facebook page.

    A rep said they didn’t know when the update would role out.

  • Silas Arentsen

    T/TX where flagships so should be so! And V is also quite same as Xperia T (hardware based)

  • Ally Sandrana

    It is possible.
    But unofficial rom use port and doesn’t guarantee full performance and everything is working

    Sony doesn’t want to take a risk

    Rest assured, cek xda and there’s dev working hard making 4.2.2 rom with 3.4 kernel

  • The Loyalist

    I don’t know actually! Sorry!

  • [A]dri[A]n

    Just ordered a Tablet Z today! Can’t wait :)

  • scrp

    Tablet S wasn’t made by Sony Mobile (some other Sony dept made it)….

  • super z

    Lack of camera button is not a big deal,,what about samsung,,apple htc,,have they got it still,,they rule

  • Chalin

    I’ve heard about 4.2,2 being released and leaked but I still havent received it. I’m in the US though using the Z. Am I the only one left out?

  • Gregg Lowden

    Except the 4.1.2 updates are for phones a year older running 4.0x – S3 did that on launch, got 4.1.1 last year and 4.1.2 a few weeks ago. Also expected to get 4.2.2 Asking if S or multitude of Sony devices as lucky or speedy? Samsung shipped S4 with 4.2.2 meaning they will see 4.3 which Z series won’t be seeing anytime after release.

  • suraj

    my ass no comparison with sony design and samsund design and see my xperia z how much faster.

  • Ashley Otu

    I got the Xperia Tablet S but now I am getting the Xperia tablet Z, one its pure Sony made from the ground up and also I think only 4.1.1. Is the only update going to the Xperia Tablet S.

  • Craig

    My firmware on my xperia tablet z is 10.1.1.A.1.253 doe this mean I wont get andriod 4.2?

  • ethan white

    I’m happy to hear, because its about android tablets, I love android tablet.

  • benney swet
