Sony Tablet S Review


Sony made a debut in the flourishing tablet market with two distinctly designed devices – Tablet S and the Tablet P. The Tablet S sports a stylish and sophisticated look, while the Tablet P turns heads over its dual screen, clutch form factor. We've...

The Sony Tablet S is a very good first attempt by Sony. There are however, a few issues. Priced at an MRP of Rs.29,990, it's almost the same as the cheapest iPad 2. There's a good amount of firepower. Except for a few complaints - primarily not being...

Sony Tablet S (32GB)


Sony's track record in industrial design, hardware engineering, gaming, and media makes it the best possible candidate to challenge Apple's iPad. A year and a half after Apple's tablet debut, Sony is striking back with an Android 3.2 slate that is...

The Sony Tablet S goes above and beyond the typical Honeycomb tablet experience by offering exclusive apps, ergonomic design, PlayStation certification for mobile gaming, DLNA video and music streaming, and an integrated IR universal remote control

It's on the pricey side, the charging adapter is proprietary, and screen brightness isn't what it could be

Sony took its time with the Tablet S, and it shows. The industrial design is smart, and the software refinements are both practical and restrained.

The Sony Tablet S provides lots of fun entertainment options--including PlayStation games--in a sleek design, but it's not a finished product yet.

Sony has succeeded in making an Android tablet that brings to bear a lot of the company's strengths. The design is unique and has a premium feel, the display is fantastic for watching video, and it's pretty nifty to be able to use this slate as a...

Sony Tablet S review


When Sony passed off its Tablet S to us for review, I was more than a little excited. While the company has been a bit slow on getting into the tablet game, the two devices we've seen (the Tablet S and the odd, folding Tablet P) have sparked quite a...

Interesting industrial design ; Great looking display ; Capable cameras

Software additions are underwhelming ; Honeycomb still feels incomplete ; Pricey considering the alternatives

Sony takes on the iPad with its Honeycomb tablet

Sony Tablet S Review


It's been some time since Sony had a tablet on the market. Times have changed since the VAIO UX's day, though, and where once tablets were niche devices, now they're making headway into our living rooms. The Sony Tablet S is the first model of the...

Starting at $499 when the Tablet S goes on sale in mid-September, Sony matches the iPad 2 and Galaxy Tab 10.1 pricing. That’s perhaps a brave strategy given the Apple slate’s current dominance, though viewed against the Samsung each has its strengths...

Sony Tablet S


Very-well-placed Power and Volume buttons are located in a recess on one side; on the other side there's a smooth cover over a full-sized SD slot and a miniUSB port, both used for transferring files. The 9.4-inch, 1280-by-800 screen is tight and...

Comfortable, ergonomic design. Excellent music player. Good universal remote control app

Expensive. Poor battery life. Aging CPU. No way to add memory. Buggy camera

The Android-based Sony Tablet S is good looking and well designed, but it's underpowered, overpriced, and doesn't pull Sony's multimedia services together in a convincing way.

Sony Tablets S and P Preview


Can Sony take on Apple's iPad? The company today announced pre-sale of two new Sony Tablet devices (incidentally, Sony trademarked the "Tablet" name, which just goes to show how much the patent and

Hiding in the shadows, Sony has been reserved in fully committing themselves into the Android tablet scene, but it seems as though they've been doing their homework while the competition brought forth its offerings. In this new venture, they simply...

Sony Tablet S, a tablet above thee rest.


I researched Android tablets for almost a year before finally purchasing the Sony Tablet S. I wanted something that was sturdy enough for a preschooler to play Angry Birds in the backseat, but that wasn't too heavy that it was going to be uncomfortable...
