As I mentioned in my feature earlier today, Sony definitely wins the award for Most Original Tablets 2011. In a world of iPad clones, the Tablet P is positively bizarre-o.
While Sony’s Tablet S adopts a magazine-style design with a weighted top portion, the Tablet P opts for dual-screen action – a bit like the Nintendo DS.
The Sony Tablet S has been available since mid-September, and now the Sony Tablet P has finally landed too. Good stuff. The only downside is: it’ll cost you £499.99.
For your £500, you get two 5.5in touschreens with 1024x480 resolution, a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 5MP rear shooter alongside a VGA front-facing effort, 1GB RAM, and 4GB internal storage expandable via micro SD.
The Sony Tablet P ships with Honeycomb (Android 3.2), but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it updated to Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) in due course.
We’d like to see the Sony Tablet P do well, if only because it dares to be different, but that £499.99 price tag is £100 more than the cheapest (i.e. 16GB) iPad 2. Eek.
Interested? Head over to Dixons, guy.
