Sony entered a tablet market already congested with products of almost all sizes, features and capabilities. Bringing with it the strengths that only this multimedia powerhouse can bring with such polished finesse and undeniable excellence (design, performance and entertainment), Sony pushed through the continuously growing crowd of tablet manufacturers with one of its kind—Sony Tablet S with superior Android experience brought forth by the finest of Sony’s technologies.
As the gadget manufacturer had already proven its worth in various industries—record label, movie studio, gaming and techie gadgets—the gadget-loving public is curious about its entry into the Android tablet scene. Looking forward to a dreamy convergence of all its strongest points, we look at its Tablet S and check out its features based on various criteria.
Design of Sony Tablet S :
When it comes to design, be it in the product’s outer appearance or program interface and images, Sony never fails to awe its consumers. Sony Tablet S poses as one of the best-designed tablets there is, with a wedge shape inspired by an open magazine with its cover folded underneath to provide an inclined design perfect for typing and carrying with one hand. This allows for easier and more convenient handling, as most of its weight is concentrated on the area or part being held. Screen orientation of the approximately 9.5 cm. x 6.8 cm. tablet is based on how it is held, so it is friendly for both righties and lefties.
Power and volume buttons are aptly placed on one side, and a mini USB port and a full-sized SD slot are on another. Relatively bright and tight, the screen has a resolution of 1280 x 800.
Connectivity Features and Specifications :
The tablet has Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, along with a superb universal remote capacity with codes that can be configured for your TV. It has been tried even with Samsung, Insignia and Sharp TVs, as well as in Tivo and Dish set-top boxes, and it worked excellently. Its “throw feature” allows for easy sharing of multimedia such as videos, music and images from the tablet your TV or other devices.
Performance Factor of Sony Tablet S :
Sony Tablet S runs with a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. Its screen is quick touch optimized, with a more sensitive layer for optimum touch experience. The Tablet’s storage is partitioned into data, apps and preloads that can’t be altered or touched.Batterylife is pegged at 4 hours and 45 minutes, playing a video on maximum brightness.
Apps, Multimedia and Entertainments :
Like most other Sony entertainment gadgets, Tablet S also puts focus on multimedia content: video, music, books, images, etc. Music and video experience is exceptional, as can be expected from a Sony entertainment gadget. Furthermore, it prides itself in being the first PlayStation-certified device, which allows users to play PlayStation games on the tablet.
It has a “Select App”, which highlights about two dozen applications every month and allows users to see which ones are most suitable for Sony tablets. The Sony Developer Program allows entrepreneurs and app developers to create apps especially for Tablet S.
Comparison/Against Other Tablets :
Here’s the catch: Considering the price, it still isn’t at par with the top tablets in the market today. With less efficient battery life, buggy camera and internal (i.e. unexpandable) memory, Sony Tablet S falls short of the crowd’s expectations from a provider that has excelled in multimedia entertainment for years. The dreamy convergence of Sony’s best features hasn’t been maximized and seamlessly arranged such that its best features could be enjoyed at their fullest. There’s still room for improvement in the fusion of the device and its contents, thus, it could be said that the indubitable Sony tablet has yet to come.
The Final Verdict :
Despite the drawbacks, that Sony Tablet S has unbelievably comfortable design, impressive universal remote control app and excellent music player remains true and undeniable. With the multimedia power that’s distinctly Sony’s, there’s no telling how fast it can come up with a tablet that addresses all issues and wields all of Sony gadgets’ strongest weapons into perfection.
