One must wonder why Sony cannot get out of the habit of playing a fragmented and behind-the-curve Android release schedule for its devices.
Finally putting speculation to rest, a Sony representative confirmed with Crave today (and subsequently on Twitter) that Sony tablet owners in “all regions will have Android 4.0 by end of May.” And on a related note, a Sony Japan statement announced a May 24 drop date for Android 4.0 landing on both Tablet S and Tablet P devices specifically in that country, perhaps a timeframe we should expect elsewhere.

What’s better than having a full 1.0Mbps upstream speeds…having 1.5Mbps of course (ok, we could all imagine much better, but it’s a start). Sprint is jacking the speed cap on uplink from 1.0Mbps to 1.5Mbps starting on June 10th according to this PR document seen above. Continue reading →
If 2009 marked the birth and awkward adolescence of new intellectual property, Prototype, the second coming of the game just skips past wondering why hair is growing in places it hasn’t before and tears it out by the roots.
