The "Sony Tablet" S features 9.4-inch LED-backlit IPS touchscreen, Nvidia Tegra 2 mobile processor and Google Android 3.2 Honeycomb. On usage, the tablet is fast when we navigate across the various screens and run the applications. The display also looks good when we played some movie trailers.
The "Sony Tablet" S has a unique asymmetric design; the screen is sloped when placed on a flat surface. On the sides of the tablet are the USB and SD memory card reader, reset pinhole, volume controls and power button. It also has a unique connector that fits the optional specialized cradle (sold separately).
