Xperia Sony Tablet S, first impressions

Sony Tablet S, first impressions

Along with the trio of phones that Sony has launched at IFA 2012 in Berlin, one of the great innovations of the brand and in general of the fair is its new Android tablet, the Tablet Xperia S, which comes with a design a somewhat peculiar, an excellent display and ready to go hard in a market that is becoming increasingly competitive.

Probably its main hallmark is the design of the back, in a way that mimics that of a magazine folded and helps soften the grip for example when the hold in hand. On the other hand also helps keep the screen slightly elevated when we left on the table. But as often happens with devices that are choosing a unique design just the general opinion bisecting very different: either you love it or hate it.

For me in particular has left me a good feeling at the design level, returning to the origins of Sony in the world of tablets and away from the concept of flat device like the iPad or Android tablets most of the competition. But surely its main selling point is the battery, which the company promises up to 9-10 hours and 1280×800 pixel display with IPS technology as OptiContrast and black makes the black look, the bright colors and therefore becomes something very nice about anything to do with the Tablet S.

The 8-megapixel rear camera not working too bad, but knowing the expertise of Sony in this area I would have liked to see something a little more advanced. Comes with Ice Cream Sandwich and will be updated but Jelly Bean still do not know when. What we do know is the release date scheduled for the same September with a price of $399.

On one side incopora lock button and volume control are somewhat hidden by the fold but realativamente accessible design. Likewise incorporates two speakers in the rear to help Clearaudio+ technology from Sony and that we could not test thoroughly, but in an environment as loud as the Sony booth at IFA, but they seem to work pretty well.

They are 9.4 inches in just over half a kilo and is available in 16, 32 and 64 GB. The accessories we’ve seen that are an important part of the tablet, with a remote control that has its own section within the custom interface layer that has put Sony and other accessories like a dock to hold it upright.

Much like, or rather suspiciously similar to the Surface also have available a cover with keyboard protection meets the times when we folded and keyboard when open. We sincerely hope that the Living is better because in the case of the Xperia experience has been very positive. The keys have little relief and are so sensitive that make let stand hands on the keyboard is impossible if we are not typos involuntary typing.

Moreover, the details of the interface is pretty and probably appreciate the best Sony has solved the issue of Android tablets and solve its major problems especially in terms of design with enough credit, but let him work pending still in the pipeline.
