Only a couple of weeks ago Martin penned Sony Tablet S follow-up to touch down before the end of the year, and now we gots lots more details, friends.
The successor to the Sony Tablet S will simply be called the Sony Xperia Tablet, and it looks, well, not bad, actually.
A whole batch of Sony Xperia Tablet slides has been leaked to German site Mobiflip, providing a ton of detail on the Sony Tablet S successor.
For starters, the Sony Xperia Tablet borrows from the Sony Tablet S’ magazine-style design (weighted at the top), however it’s less extreme and ultimately 42% thinner.
Other Sony Xperia Tablet specs include a 9.4in 1280 x 800 display, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 6,000mAh battery offering 10 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) “or later”, and a “slim, aluminium splash proof body”.
The Sony Xperia Tablet will weigh in with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB internal storage, with "tentative suggested retail prices" of $449.99, $549.99 and $649.99 respectively. That’s $50 less than the equivalent iPads. Smart thinking, Sony.
There’s also a host of Sony Xperia Tablet accessories, including a Microsoft Surface-style keyboard cover, priced $99.99.
As if all that wasn’t impressive enough, one slide promises: “Xperia tablet creates immersive ‘emotional’ experiences… in every personal space.” I’m sold.
No confirmed or even suggested Sony Xperia Tablet release date just yet, but we'll be watching this one like, uhm, some sort of hawk or something.
