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.
Previously known as the S1, the tablet features Android Honeycomb 3.1 which has been made specifically for tablets. Sony have made the tablet PlayStation certified, allowing you to play classic games from the original PlayStation. It will also feature a universal remote control application, allowing you to “control your entire living room with the Sony Tablet S”. You’re not just limited to Sony products either, the application supports other brands.
