Apologies if this has already been posted somewhere, but as I was updating my Xperia Link app on the play store, I noticed it has screenshots which had the notification bar moves to the top and the three main home, back and open apps buttons moved to the centre of the bottom bar like a nexus 10.

So it seems Sony will be changing it to match the Nexus tablet line UI for the forthcoming update.

I like the idea of that but the only issue I can see is there is no shortcut to access Small Apps like there is now unless I just missed it.

is that what 4.2 will really look like?
im not a hater or anything but to be honest i dont like it, i guess i need to stick the current appearance if that so...
plus i agree with the person above me.. the shortcut for small apps and remote is gone...
anyway, its not really out yet and i hope that kind of appearance is for phones

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Why did Sony kill off TabletUI? The "new" TabletUI is a piece of crap for a 10,1" device!

Android adopted the phablet UI in favour of the tablet UI from 4.2 onwards.

the image is clearly photoshopped. look at the status bar - the bluetooth and wifi icons are off centered and much too big, same with the battery percentage. also the apps look like they are copied in, they are much too close to the navigation bar. this is clearly a fake screenshot.

let´s see what the real 4.2 update will bring us i would appreciate the switch to the new tablet ui from 4.2. it´s so much more intuitive and needed for 4.2 because where would the quicksettings go without it?

Small apps are probably going to be moved to the recent apps button like they are on the smartphones.

I don't think Sony will switch to a phablet ui. It would confuse their 'normal' consumer base (excluding people here). And companies always assume users are idiots, so i'm pretty sure we'll still have the tablet ui

Sony is trying to keep the core framework and such as close as possible to stock Android. I also don't like this new UI, but I'm sure as soon as we have the 4.2 system deodexed, mods to bring the old Tablet UI will be back...

It might be photo shopped, but it is from official screenshots from a Sony tablet app on Google Play, so we have to assume it is the new UI. Like you though, I guess we'll have to see
