Sony has never really been a tablet forerunner. The company has offered some decent slates in the past, but nothing you’d urgently recommend to a friend. The Tablet Z was good—but nobody remembers you for being mediocre. Example: we recognize the Kindle Fire HDX because it offers a solid experience highlighted by a unique service in Mayday; the Nexus 7, meanwhile, is important because of its affordability and powerful specs. The iPad is the obvious tablet emperor, but even that crown has lost some of its sheen, giving way to a relentless Android invasion. That said, can Sony’s latest tablet step up and finally cement its status as a bonafide competitor?

Microsoft is hosting a “small” event in New York City on Tuesday, May 20 where we expect to hear an update on the company’s Surface portfolio of Windows tablets. It might not actually be that “small” though: there’s a lot of possible news that can come out of Microsoft on May 20, and some of it may change our perception of the company’s Surface tablets for the long haul.
