Sony releases tablet SDK add-on

Sony has completed its SDK (software development kit) collection with the launch of today's Sony Tablet SDK add-on. The pack allows developers to "make use of the special features included in Sony tablets," the company says. These include the windowed "small apps" found on the Xperia Tablet S, as well as the IR blaster found on the same device, which can be used to interface with TVs.

Code samples and documentation can be found over at the Sony Developer World site.

Sony has yet to see massive success with its Android tablet line-up. But the inclusion of unique features like water resistance and a wedge-shaped design, as well as developer-friendly endeavors like this, could help the company stand out from the crowd.
