Sony Tablet P Review


In a world dominated by extremely similar looking tablets, Japanese electronics giant, Sony have sent it a wave of fresh air. They've brought in two different form factors – the first one being the Tablet S – which wasn't a major overhaul, in terms of...

The Sony Tablet P is priced at Rs.36,990 (MRP). This makes it compete with the top notch Android tablets and the iPad 2, as well. The P makes for an interesting design, but whilst doing so, it limits your functionality greatly. In the real world,...

Review Sony Tablet P / S2 Tablet/MID


Foldable tablet. All tablets look alike? Sony shows how a flat board can be turned into the size of a handy Communicator: It fits in every pocket, is readable in sunlight and supplies all comforts of the latest Android version. It can't get more...

Brilliant colors / good contrast; Wide viewing angles; Pocket size; Innovative: Handy, but large TFT; Stable case; Good Tegra 2 processing power; Memory expansion via microSD; 3G module; Long battery life and low weight

High-gloss screen surface; No video out; Not all applications work on the split screen; Top shell inadequately mounted

Using two touch screens as if it were one

Behold, It Folds


Sony's Tablet P has a unique folding design that works well for games and e-books. But it's a tough sell for most users.

Sony Tablet P Review


In a tablet market that's flooded with similar offerings comes Sony and their Tablet P. With a unique clamshell design they can call their own that we've never seen from an Android this is truly a one-of-a-kind tablet. Is it worth the money or just an...

If Sony could do this again with more developer support, the latest and greatest specs and OS, and cut down on the bezel this could be a real winner. For now it seems tossed together and a halfway finished experience. If you want an excellent and...

Sony Tablet P


No, it's not called "The Sony DS," although technically that's exactly what the Sony Tablet P is. A dual-screen, portable Sony system that plays PlayStation games (keep reading), that just happens to run Android.

The Sony Tablet P's screens look great and I appreciate its removable battery. Also, the ability to fold it in half and fit it into your pocket is indescribably convenient

The two screens are segmented by a dead space, making certain apps function awkwardly, and its pointy corners don't necessarily make me want to hold it for extended periods. Also, both the contract and noncontract prices are too expensive given what...

The Sony Tablet P's clamshell design makes it very convenient, but its expensive price and the awkward implementation of its dual screens make for an undesirable tablet experience.

Sony Tablet P review


In a market riddled with similar slates, no one's going to accuse Sony of adopting a copycat tablet strategy. First the company released the Tablet S, a tablet seemingly inspired by a folded-back magazine, and now comes the Tablet P, which draws its...

Apps optimized for dual screens work pretty well ; Nice looking ; Displays look good

Most Android apps work poorly on two screens ; Huge bezels, pointy corners make it awkward to use ; No LTE, outdated internals

Even if its specs were high-end, the Tablet P wouldn't be

Sony Tablet P review (UK edition)


Sony Tablet S PreviewPlayStation Store hits the Tablet S today, lets gamers relive the glory of the mid-'90sExclusive: Sony 'S2' dual-screen Android

Compelling form factor ; Dual-screen browsing works well

Apps are severely lacking ; Poor sound performance ; Low-grade protective casing ; Erratic WiFi reception

The Tablet P proves that a split-screen tablet could work, but the device needs more attention, especially when it comes to software.

Sony Tablet P Review


The Sony Tablet P sports nearly the same hardware specs as the Sony Tablet P, but there's something visually different about it. Of course, we know that Sony is all about making statements – and they're surely doing it with this. Donning a foldable...

Cool looking design ; PlayStation Certified ; Good build quality

Large bezels surrounding its displays ; Choppy performance ; Shoots terrible photos & videos ; Horrendous battery life

So what can we say about the Sony Tablet P? Well, we still have to give credit to Sony for producing something that’s uniquely different – especially for a tablet. On paper, two displays sounds mightily tantalizing, but when it actually boils down to...

Sony Tablet P Review


Variety is the spice of life, and in the mobile world this tenet is demonstrated best with Android hardware. When it comes to variety, Android phones and tablets beat all comers. So it was with some anticipation that I received Sony's Tablet P, a...

The Tablet P is a novelty, and at certain tasks it excels. Those tasks are playing emulated PlayStation games, fitting into small spaces and making your friends go “oooh”. Unfortunately, there aren’t many use cases where its unique design comes in...

Sony Tablet P


We were wowed by last year's debut of the Sony Tablet S—a remarkable feat of slate engineering that remains our favorite Android tablet to date. The Tablet S is beautiful and extremely comfortable to hold and use. Plus, it has a gorgeous screen and...

Loaded with entertainment features ; High-quality display ; Deep integration with other Sony products ; Unique support for dual-screen apps ; Swappable battery

No HDMI output ; Poor audio playback and recording ; Seam between screens distracts with certain apps ; Pricey

This unique dual-screen Android tablet is a radical rethink of slate design and works best with apps designed for its two LCDs. You’ll want to consider—carefully—how you use a tablet before deciding whether this one is worth the outlay.
