Sony's other slate, the Tablet S, got its Ice Cream Sandwich update a few weeks ago, which has left Tablet P owners feeling a little envious.

A Sony press release in Japan has now confirmed that Ice Cream Sandwich is on its way to the Tablet P, and although it doesn't make it clear if it's a worldwide release or not, we saw the upgrade roll out to the Tablet S on the same day worldwide so here's hoping.

A game of two halves

The impending update will allow Tablet P owners to do things such as accessing the camera app direct from the lock screen, take panoramic photos, new home screen actions including folder creation and more.

The Tablet P was an interesting addition to the tablet market, with its unique clamshell and dual-screen design offering customers something very different to the standard tablet experience.

It managed to score a respectable 3.5/5 in our in-depth review, which shows the Tablet P certainly has some potential.

Check out Sony's handy video below, showing you all the additions which come with the Ice Cream Sandwich update. Although it's a Tablet S in the video, we expect pretty much the same features to appear on the Tablet P.
