Sony Xperia S tablet accessories in the spotlight

Sony Xperia S tablet accessories in the spotlightWe're expecting a fair few bits of hot mobile gadgetry to emerge from IFA 2012 in Berlin this week. And with the show itself kicking off tomorrow, that obviously means we'll probably hear about most of it today.

Like the Sony Xperia S tablet, for example, the anticipated follow-up to the company's first-generation Android tablets, which tones down the quirkiness but dishes up a whole new range of accessories.

The Xperia S tablet isn't quite official or anything, but BGR has managed to acquire some official pics that give the game away in a big way, especially when it comes to the new add-ons Sony has up its sleeve.

The combination keyboard/cover looks set to be all the rage in tablet-land over the next product cycle or two, and the Xperia S tablet is well represented, while a variety of compatible stands (including apparently some multimedia stands) and a privacy screen to keep prying eyes away are also among the options.

As for the Xperia S tablet itself, the design – as we've seen before – is much more vanilla than the Tablet S it replaces, with the folded-back-paperback look having made way for a far flatter and more geometric design.

We still don't know the full details spec-wise, but based on previous leaks are we're looking at a 9.4in display, some quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 action alongside 1GB of RAM, and Android 4.something.

We also have question marks about the name. While BGR says Xperia S tablet, that doesn't make much sense considering there's already an Xperia S smartphone, while the other popular name – Xperia Tablet – seems a little generic. Fortunately, we should know for sure within the next day or two.

Saw some accessories for the first "S" the other day. Amazing how they make really expensive accessories for a tab that didn't sell all that well.
