Sony Takes Wraps Off Tablet P and Tablet S

With Sony being so secretive regarding their forthcoming Android tablets lately, we expected them to finally show us everything we’ve been waiting to see at IFA. Welp, they’ve done just that. Let’s take a look at what we’re getting here.

Let’s start with the Tablet S, Sony’s 9.4 inch (IPS with Sony TruBlack and Bravia display technology) Honeycomb tablet (the one I’m sure most of us are looking at more closely).

We don’t have much in the way of specs that most of us here care about (such as processor speed/type and amount of RAM) but Sony has confirmed that there would be both 16GB and 32GB WiFi-only configurations. We’re also getting a full-sized SDHC card slot and a front-facing camera along with other usual bells and whistles.

As for the Sony Tablet P, Sony’s odd-looking Clamshell dual-screen tablet, we’ve got two 5 inch displays (effectively making it a 10 inch tablet, I suppose). The dual-screen design opens up a few exciting possibilities here.

Perhaps you want to use the bottom display for the keyboard while the top one is used for something else. Or perhaps that bottom screen will be a nice to put all of those virtual PlayStation buttons to play games.

Sony has given a “within the coming weeks” release window for $499.99 and $599.99 for the Tablet S 16GB and 32GB models, respectively. As for the P, they haven’t mentioned anything about the United States but Europe will get it at the end of November for 599 quid. They’ll also be getting the S in September for 479 quid. We’ll be on the lookout for more details in the meantime.

      For $100 less ($399) I’d rather have the Asus Eee Pad Transformer. The Tablet S does look pretty though. Drop the price a little and I’d consider it.

    I can’t wait till black Friday when some of these 3 and $400 tablets go for 199

    You ‘suppose’ wrong.

    Two 5 inch screens do not equal one 10 inch screen.

    Sigh.

      Two 5″ screens would make approximately one 6.6″ screen. (Measuring diagonally, and estimating height width ratios.)

    As of now I’m thinking of the Sony S tablet,the HTC Puccini and the HP Touchpad just because it only a $100 if I can find one in stock. I like the Sony one but if there is no back camera then forget it….I have the HTC EVO 3d and love sense and then I have a Sony laptop so is between those two…I’m kinda OCD and I want everything to be the same band lol…

    Sony have nice products, I have a desktop, 2 receivers and a 5 disc dvd player all are Sony. I have a xoom wifi, I want a HP touchpad, I am waiting on Amazon’s tablet. Sony, I am not willing to pay another $600 on a tablet, these prices need to co down, everybody got a tablet sitting still and collecting dust because they are all greedy.

    As a sony fangirl(Xperia play, Xperia X10, and Xperia arc owner), I would definitely buy this. It is much more appealing to me than most of the stuff i’ve seen from Moto, HTC and samsung

    599 quid? good luck there, Sony, I definitely will not be buying
