Sony Tablet S preview

 

Even back when it was just a sketch we were suitably intrigued by Sony's Tablet S. Then it was the "S1," a name that, indistinct as it was, still had m...

Sony Tablet S

 

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.

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

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

Conclusions The Sony Tablet S stands apart from the Android tablet pack thanks to its elegant design. It's genuinely attractively designed, which can take you far. But we're a hard-headed lot here, and we'll note that the same $499 can get you the even...

Sony S review

 

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

The Sony Tablet S goes above and beyond the typical Android 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.

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...

Interesting industrial design ; Great looking display ; Capable cameras

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

Handsomely designed hardware, but Sony struggles on the software

Review Sony S1 SGP-T111DE/S Tablet

 

Sony tablet. Sony promises the usual hardware, but unique feature

Wide viewing angles; Handy size; Stable case; Brilliant colors / high contrast; Good Tegra 2 processing power; Memory expansion via standard SD card; Remote control via IR sensor; 24 month warranty

Videos/music can't be played from SD card; High-gloss screen surface; No video out; Short battery life in tablet comparison; High standby power consumption; High body temperature in tablet comparison

Why the S tablet gets so warm and so many other equally built systems don't.

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...

Sony’s UX series VAIO UMPCs were, with their tiny slide-out keyboards and futuristic design, innovative enough to still show up in motion pictures as space-age props long after their actual hardware was outdated. The company has attempted some of that...

Sony Tablet S Review

 

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...
