Sony is rolling out two tablets for its Japanese customer base. One is the 3G version of the Sony Tablet P and the second one is the Sony 3G tablet S, and both of them will be sold by the Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo.
Tablet P and Tablet S, running Android Honeycomb 3.2, are Sony’s first entries to the Honeycomb market which will now be released with mobile broadband versions in Japan. The Tablet S is currently available only in its Wi-Fi version but this time Sony’s releasing it after incorporating it with a 3G connection.
Tablet S features a 9.4-inch TruBlack display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and a built-in infrared port for controlling Televisions and set-top boxes. It has a folded magazine design with off-center weight that makes it comfortable for the users, especially to hold it in one hand.
The slate is powered by Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. There are two sets of shooters; a rear camera of 5-megapixels and font-facing camera of only 0.3 megapixels.
Tablet P, on the other hand, features two 5 inch LCD displays at 1024 x 480 pixels each. This means an added clarity of 1280×800 pixels.
There are buttons present for switching between screen mode and for using only one screen. Tablet P packs 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of expandable memory with a 3080 mAh battery.
For power, there is hidden under the hood an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz. The slate will be launched with support for 3G connection.
Both the 3G Tablet S and Tablet P have Playstation certification, DLNA certification and access to Sony’s media stores of music, video and e-books. The slates are scheduled to hit the Japanese markets on October 28th.
Details regarding its international launch are still unknown, so if you fancy getting one of these, keep your fingers crossed for Sony to fly it out globally soon.
