Although it may not have been the most popular tablet in terms of sales after its release, the Sony P series is certainly one of the more ‘different’ varieties of tablet to be released. Despite the poor reception at its full price however, surely the latest deal from Currys in the UK will boost sales of the device further, as who can resist a deal for a 4GB tablet with 3G capability for just under £130?

Sony, like many other manufacturers have jumped into the tablet market and we saw two tablets announced by them a few months back. Both tablets stood apart from the rest of the crowd. The Sony Tablet S, previously known as the S1 was released back in September and featured a design which has been described as being similar to a folded back magazine. Sony’s other tablet entry, the Tablet P, previously known as the S2 features two 5.5 inch touch screen displays and a clam shell design akin to Nintendo’s DS.
Sony’s first tablet, the “Sony Tablet S” was released this month in the UK and now has been released in the US. The Sony Tablet S has gone in sale in the US for $499 for the 16GB Wifi model, where as the 32GB model is priced at $599.
