Sony releases in Japan its tablets and introduces the Tablet P and Tablet S!
Here they are, Sony’s S1 and S2 tablets are not official, behold the Sony Tablet S or SGPT113JP/S and Sony Tablet P or SGPT211JP/S.
Sony Tablet S Series.
Introduced yesterday in Germany, the S Series tablet from Sony in Japan will come in two different flavors with a WiFi only version featuring Android 3.1 and a 3G (Docomo) + WiFi version that will run Android 3.2!
The S Tablet comes with a 9.4” WXGA (1280×800) screen, available in 16 or 32GB of memory for the WiFi model , while the 3G+Wifi will have only 16GB of memory. Other specifications include SD Card, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a 0.3 Mpix front facing camera and a 5.11 Mpix rear facing camera with an Exmor for Mobile CMOS sensor.
Battery wise, Sony announced 430h of battery standby, 31h while playing music, 6h of battery while watching video and 6.2h worth of web surfing for the WiFi only version and 4.5h of web surfing in 3G.
Finally, the S Series comes with 598g in its WiFi version and 625g in its 3G+WiFi version.
Sony Tablet P Series.
The P series comes with its unique dual screen and clamshell design and will be sold only in Japan in 3G+WiFi and with just 4GB of internal memory.
The Sony Tablet P comes with the same Nvidia Tegra CPU, Android 3.2, and a pair of 5.5” VGA (1024×480) screens, as well as the same pair of cameras as the P Series, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR…
Battery-wise, Sony announced 120h of battery life in standby, 16.8h for music playback, 6.5h for video playback, 6.1h of WiFi web surfing and only 4.6h of 3G web surfing.
The Tablet P Series comes with a size of 180x14x158mm when open and 180x26x79mm when closed, for a total weight of 372g.
After having a bit of time to play with both models, I have to admit that when it comes to design and quality materials, Sony did not make any compromises. Both tablets are elegant and light, but do not respond as quickly as I was expecting them to… they are not slow, but I was expecting Sony to make a quick-ass speedy tablet to show how willing they are to kick ass.
The other complaint I have is how “bad” the screens of both tablets are outdoors, making it difficult for anyone to enjoy them in sunlight. I strongly advise anyone who’s interesting in buying one to quickly invest in a matte screen protector, or be ready to be the proud owner of a very expensive portable mirror.
