If you’ve ever held a tablet and thought to yourself, “I wish this had dual-screens,” Sony is introducing something that’s right up your alley. Instead of releasing a me-too device, the Japanese company’s maverick approach with its Tablet P is sure to turn some heads – though whether that’s a good thing or bad thing remains to be seen. At $400 with two-year contract on AT&T, the device certainly has some big hurdles to overcome if it wants to find a place amongst the iPads, Kindle Fires and Transformer Primes.
But let’s not judge the Tablet P by its uninspired name and looks alone. While this Android 3.2 device took some getting used to in our brief hands-on, it certainly seems like it can hold its own for those road warriors or students who want satisfactory functionality in an extremely portable package. Once we get a longer look we’ll be sure to bring you our full thoughts.
