I'm just wondering, because its taken so long for Sony to release 4.4.2 when most other devices have had it for ages already, may sony just update out tablets straight to 4.4.3 instead of 4.4.2, and if now can we expect to wait another 6 months or more before they release 4.4.3?

Only ask because 4.4.2 has known issues and is the reason most others are updating to 4.4.3 soon but we havn't even got 4.4.2 yet anyway, unlike most others that have nbeen have the little bugs like the camera battery drain issue.

No they will give us just 4.4.2 and they will expect to say thank you too! This will be our last update! 12-13 months of support just like many other devices!

Considering 4.4.3 isn't even officially launched yet, and is rumored to launch sometime in May...that would indicate that Sony does not yet even HAVE 4.4.3 to work with.

So no, unless they've mastered time travel, I don't see how they could possibly release 4.4.3 in May. My guess is we'll never see 4.4.3 on the Tablet Z. However, the next major release is entirely possible. A 4.5 or 5.0 release is entirely possible around end of 3rd quarter from Google(maybe announced in late June at Google I/O, released a month or two later). Maybe they could have it ready 3 months of so after release. I wouldn't be surprised if this tablet sees at least one more major update after this 4.4.2 release in May. That following one may be the last though.
