With any triple-A Android phone or tablet, it's almost a given that root access will be achieved within days of release - or sometimes days before. But every once in a while one slips through the cracks, often a device that's got enough brand name of a little interest but is priced outside of most people's budgets. Lenovo's ThinkPad Tablet
, which only got root last month, is a prime example. Sony's Tablet S has been available in the US for about five months and longer than that in Japan, but it's taken this long for the Android mod community to get around to giving it the root treatment. Tablet S owners, you can send your thanks to Dan Rosenberg
, who's done this for a growing number of Android devices.
