Although Sony missed a spot of the tablet market share with the Tegra 3 CPU and Android OS based tablets, it looks like Sony wants to become again a leader in the tablet market with the Xperia Tablet. Yet very similar with the Sony Tablet S, the new sleek Xperia Tablet has been subject to a lot of upgrades and improved camera action.
The Sony Xperia Tablet will be the next tablet launched by the Japanese company which will be run by a Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, a new Android 4.x OS (Ice Cream Sandwich or a newer version of it) and the hard-drive capacity of 16, 32 or 64 GB. The 6000 mAh battery will provide enough power for the Xperia Tablet to surf the web through Wi-Fi for about 10 hours.
The new Sony tablet will come with a cover-like integrated keyboard which resembles a lot the Microsoft Windows Surface Tablet. Although it has similarities with the Windows Surface Tablet, Sony’s Xperia keyboard cover will act as a carrying case for the device. Thus, when opened, the cover can be used as a stander for typing on it upwards.
Concerning Xperia prices, Sony Corp. knows that the success of a product stands in its value of acquisition. The suggested retail price of the Xperia Tablet will start at $449.99 while the cover will cost $99.99. The resolution on the 9.4-inch screen is 1280 by 800 pixels, which is similar to competing 10.1-inch tablets. Sony’s TruBlack display technology is also expected to help minimize glare and boost color vibrancy. The screen also has anti-fingerprint coating and will supposedly be splash-proof.
Also, rumours suggest that the Sony Xperia Tablet may have an 8-megapixel camera mounted on its back and a 1-megapixel camera on the front.
