Sony unveils Xperia S tablet

Sony unveils Xperia S tablet
Sony has unveiled their latest Android tablet, an actual competitor in the space.

Following the failed launches of their under-powered and expensive Tablet S and Tablet P models, the new Xperia S will actually be able to compete with other leaders in the space.



Using the ergonomic wedge design and integrated IR remote from the Tablet S, Sony has added Android 4.0, a Tegra 3 quad-core processor at 1.3GHz, removed the proprietary charger, and dropped the price a bit.

The tablet has a 9.4-inch IPS screen with 1,280x800-pixel resolution and a Sony TruBlack panel, leading to more "vibrant colors, deeper blacks, and minimal screen reflections," says the company.

Additionally, the tablet has 1GB RAM, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 3.0, a gyroscope, and an accelerometer. There is a full SD card slot and an HDMI input, as well as dual cameras 1/8MP.

Sony's biggest selling point is the remote control, which, when partnered with the company's own Watch Now software allows you to turn the tablet into a large remote and TV guide. You can power on multiple devices from the tablet, including a DVD/Blu-ray player, sound system, etc, using just one button.

There is a potential to buy a tall dock for $99, making it into more of a desktop.

The Xperia Tablet S launches on September 7 with 16GB ($399), 32GB ($499), and 64GB ($599)
