Sony Tablet P review (UK edition)

 

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

Compelling form factorDual-screen browsing works well

Apps are severely lackingPoor sound performanceLow-grade protective casingErratic WiFi reception

Sony Tablet P review: Sony Tablet P

 

Sony Tablet P

The ; 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

 

The Sony Tablet P does not make good use of its interesting dual-screen design, offering up both a sub par gaming experience with no physical buttons and an awkward Android tablet experience.

Sharp and bright screens. Game-friendly design. Interesting dual-screen optimized apps.

Flimsy design. Miniscule internal storage. Awkward split between screens. Wide bezels. Limited optimized-app selection.

The Sony Tablet P is available through AT&T and connects to its HSPA+42 network, but not to 4G LTE. The Tablet P costs $399.99 with a two-year contract or $549.99 without. Off contract, that's more than the superior Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime...

Review: Sony Tablet P

 

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.

Graphically intense apps suck the battery hard; I got under 3.5 hours on a charge. Speaker is tinny and far too soft. No way to get an unbroken screen experience; full-screen apps always look weird. Some app compatibility problems

Sony Tablet P review

 

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.

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...

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

 

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...

Sony has redesigned most of the core apps to work with the dual-screens. They have a few that launched in the market with full dual-screen support and work great too, but in general the experience is sub-par at best. They did a good job with what they...

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 mobile.

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, Small enough for the pocket,...

High-gloss screen surface, No video out, Not all applications work on the split screen, Top shell inadequately mounted, A better mounting of the removable skin. A shorter charge time of the battery

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...
