Hands-On With Sony’s New Wedge-Shaped Tablet S


Still got tablet fever? Somebody must, because they just keep coming.

Sony unveiled the final versions of its two new Android tablets Wednesday. These are the same two devices we saw last month — the curvy, wedge-shaped full-sized tablet is now called the Sony Tablet S, and the dual-screen tablet that folds up into a pocket-sized burrito is now called the Sony Tablet P.

The Tablet S will land in stores this September, priced at $500 for a 16GB version and $600 for the 32GB version. The Tablet P will arrive closer to the end of the year, and pricing on that one is still up in the air. The full-sized Tablet S is Wi-Fi only, but the Tablet P will be outfitted with AT&T wireless connectivity options.

The hardware was officially announced at the IFA trade show in Berlin. However, we were given a demo version of the Tablet S to play around with over the weekend. The software (it comes with Android Honeycomb) isn’t fully baked just yet, so we’ll hold off going deep on that until we get a final version. Look for a full review later in September in the Product Reviews section of Wired.
