Consumer electronics giant Sony decided to fold, to be more accurate, go fold – no, not as in quit the industry but rather go forward with their revolutionary folding tablet, the new Sony Tablet P. This quirky new tablet features an easily distinguishable two compact 5-inch screen in a folding clamshell design. It will be running on the latest Andoid Honeycomb (3.2) Operating System and comes with pre-loaded and select Android apps. The Sony Tablet P is the first PlayStation Certified tablet, making it a great alternative to your usual portable gaming console as it comes pre-installed with top PlayStation favorites including Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes. Gamers can further expand their game collections by downloading more exciting PlayStation titles from Sony or the Android Market. This tablet also offers great multimedia and entertainment capabilities thanks to its integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Moreover, it can also stream and download movies, TV shows, and music anytime and anywhere, provide access to more than 2.4 million books and periodicals, and easily share its content to supported network capable home entertainment devices like TV, home theater system, speakers and Sony VAIO products.
The device can be easily slipped and carried around in a pocket as it weighs around 370 grams and merely measures 79 x 180 x 26mm when folded. The exterior comes with front and rear mounted cameras, USB and SD slots, and hinges. When opened, the display is spread across the two 5-inch screens with Sony TruBlack technology. Specially written apps can take advantage of the dual screen and display one task on the first screen and display another task or controls on the other, e.g. a PlayStation One game on the first screen and the controller on the second screen. With regards to the internal hardware, the Sony Tablet P is powered by a dual-core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor, 1 GB RAM, and 4 GB storage.
