While Apple and Samsung are battling for tablet supremacy in the courts and in the market, Japanese electronics manufacturer has chosen to sneak up on the two tablet giants with its very own offering in the segment. The company has recently announced the launch of a thin and light device called the Sony Xperia Tablet S. The device will be accompanied by the company’s Xperia smartphones and will come with many of the features found on the existing Xperia line of phones.
The Xperia Tablet S comes with a multi-port cover which allows it to be completely splash-proof from all angles and comes with a splash proof rating of IPX-4. The device comes with a lightweight and thin aluminum body which houses top of the line tablet tech like a Tegra 3 quad-core processor from NVIDIA and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS which allows the tablet to fulfill a range of entertainment needs. The entertainment-centric device also comes with a ClearAudio+ mode, integrated Wi-Fi, HDMI connectivity and a SD memory card slot which allows it to be paired with a number of other devices.
This multiple device compatibility also allows the Xperia Tablet S to be used as a sleek universal remote control. With a single touch of the button, the tablet can be paired with an audio system, Blu-ray Disc players or the TV. The user can then use apps like “Watch Now” to interact with the TV, view a visual program guide on the tablet and stay connected to real-time trends from social networking feeds and personal preferences. The Sony Xperia Tablet S will be offered in 16GB ($399), 32GB ($499) and 64GB ($599) specifications.
