Xperia Tablet Z update joy to Android 4.3, 4.4 Kit Kat

By Alan Ng - Nov 8, 2013

We have some great news now to share with Sony Xperia fans. Specifically, for owners of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z who have been searching for news on the elusive Xperia Tablet Z Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Android 4.4 Kit Kat updates.

You may have been waiting for these updates to land for many months, but we can confirm that things are going to get very exciting for you in the coming months. Sony has just confirmed that not only will the Xperia Tablet Z be getting an update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but it will also be getting a future update to Android 4.4 Kit Kat as well – guaranteed.

As confirmed over on the Sony Xperia blog, the release date for Android 4.3 on the Xperia Tablet Z will be happening some time in December. There is no set date yet or a confirmation of regions, but Sony has said that the update will roll out first starting from December.

That means that the device will be getting an Android 4.4 Kit Kat update sometime in 2014, although we hope that this will be in the early months, rather than later. For a tablet that launched in May with only Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, you have to say that this is great support from Sony, letting consumers know the minute they have confirmation that Kit Kit is possible on the device.

Hopefully we’ll be able to bring you respective release dates for the Android 4.3 and Android 4.4. updates soon, as well as when they will be going live in UK, US and other parts of the world. For now, give us your reaction to this.
