Sony Tablet P

Last updated: Apr 11th, 2012.

The Sony Tablet P was released along with its bigger brother, the Sony Tablet S. Both have very interesting designs, but Sony decided to especially go all out on this one. It is a foldable, clamshell tablet with two displays.

Both screens measure 5.5-inches diagonally. This form-factor allows the tablet to be much more portable while keeping some good screen real estate. Specs include a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, Android 3.2 and 1 GB of RAM, along with dual-cameras.

In the US, the Tablet P is available from AT&T, with 4G HSPA+ connectivity.
