Sony Tablet S Preview

It seems like only yesterday that Apple had a monopoly on the Tablet business with the IPad. However, as with anything involving technology, it wasn’t long before the other companies started producing tablets of their own.  As well as Apple; now ASUS, Samsung, LG, Toshiba, Dell, and Acer all have tablets of their own. This is, all but one company: Sony. Well all that comes to an end in the middle of September when Sony’s first tablet hits the stores. In preparation for this event, I’ve decided to run down the up coming tablet, and what makes it standout compared to other tablets out there.

Now right off, I should make it clear which tablet I’m reviewing. See Sony has two coming out right now: the Tablet S (A traditional looking tablet) and the unique Tablet P. (And before anyone asks, yes those are unfortunately the names Sony is going with.) The interesting thing about the P is that its very much looks like a DS, and actually folds onto itself. Sadly, there is no release date for the Tablet P at this time. So for this review, we’re focusing on the Tablet S.

Tablet S, Notice its unique shape

The Tablet S (according to will be released on September 16th. It’s going to be available with two different memory capacities: 16 GB for $499.99, and the 32 GB for $599.99. They both include a spot for a SD Card, and USB drive, but that’s for file sharing only. The Tablet S is also a “Wi-Fi only tablet, meaning no At&T 3g service (though this is not true with the Tablet P however).

The most interesting thing about the tablet is the shape of it. While most tablets try to be as thin as possible, Sony takes a different approach. Instead, the shape of the Tablet S is fat on one end and gets slimmer on the way to the other side. It very much like a magazine with the first dozen pages wrapped around itself. This design has actually got some very positive reviews from people who have handled the product. The thicker end actually makes the tablet easier to grip than other tablets. Despite this, it still weighs about as much as an IPad (1.3 pounds).

The Tablet S is loaded with a lot of features. It comes with comes with Android 3.0 Honeycomb already installed.  The screen itself is 9.4 inches, giving you a nice screen at 1280×800 pixels. It has two cameras, one in the front and in the back. It has a 1 GHz Tegra Processor and 1 GB of RAM.

The big feature of the tablet is that it has a certified PSone emulator. With it, you can play PSone games (legally) on your tablet. In fact, its already bundled with Crash Bandicoot to start off your collection.  Also the tablet has an interesting feature where you can use it as a remote control for your HD TVs.

The really cool thing is the potential this has with the PS3. Perhaps in due time, movies we buy on PSn can be transferred to your tablet for watching. Perhaps Qriocity will find its way on it, and you can transfer your music to your PS3? They could even find a way so you can use the tablet during a game. I remember a PSP demo where the PSP was used like a rearview mirror during a racing game; maybe something similar? Even access to your inventory via the tablet. The potential is definitely, and this could be Playstation’s answer to Wii U.

So what do you all think? Will the Sony Tablets be break out hits? Or will they be lost in the shuffle? Let your opinions be heard in the comments below.
