Android tablets to pick from, and now Sony has thrown another one onto the ever-growing pile. We don't hear as much from Sony as we do from other manufacturers in the Android space, but when we do, there's a pretty good chance that Sony has implemented some strange feature to make its products stand out from the rest. That's no different with Sony's latest tablet, the XPERIA Tablet S, with Chris Burns recently posting his review of the device over at SlashGear. You'll have to head over there to get the full opinion, but we'll tackle some of the big points here.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 LTE owners on AT&T, but today they're finally getting a software update for their beloved tablets. Sadly they're still on Honeycomb, and today you will all be able to enjoy Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. While we wish this was Jelly Bean, it isn't, but head down below for additional details.
Ice Cream Sandwich on their LG Optimus 2X. We've been talking about this update for more than a year now, with LG even leading us to believe at one point that the Optimus 2X would not be getting an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. In a rather strange (and very delayed) turn of events, GSMArena has spotted a thread on the XDA Developers forum that says the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Optimus 2X is now ready for Europe.
AT&T have announced their new budget friendly HTC One VX is available right now. HTC's new pocket and wallet friendly smartphone is available in stores and online for the low low price of just $49.99 and we have all the details on this impressive phone below.
Google has released the Android platform distribution numbers for November, and things are starting to look up for Jelly Bean. Whereas Jelly Bean only held a 2.7% share in October, it was up to 6.7% in November. That's not too bad when you think about the sheer number of Android handsets out there, but of course, Gingerbread is still reigning supreme as it's running on 50.8% of handsets according to the data.
HTC and AT&T announced two new smartphones to grace their 4G LTE lineup. Those being the new and improved HTC One X+, as well as the budget friendly HTC One VX. Sadly the only one available is the One X+ and we've still not heard a word regarding the VX. Today however the carrier is stating they expect to be "fully stocked" with the One VX by December 7th.
Jelly Bean updates, but of course, there are a ton of devices out there that aren't even on Ice Cream Sandwich yet. There are many Android users who are patiently awaiting the arrival of an Ice Cream Sandwich update that may never arrive. It's almost tragic in a way, but luckily, we're finding out today that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 3G (GT-P7300) won't be one of the devices stuck in the past.
Samsung and US Cellular have a brand new smartphone available for their regional customers today although we haven't heard a peep from either party.
