AT&T Confirms Dual-Screen Sony Tablet P Arrives This Weekend


It’s well-nigh impossible to look at Sony’s Tablet P without conjuring up some memories of Kyocera’s Echo from last year. After all, both designs employ dual touchscreens in a convertible layout that lets you collapse the device while carrying it. Kyocera’s attempt never caught-on in a big way, so we’re anxious to see if Sony has what it takes to succeed where others have failed. We’ll be getting our chance quite soon, with Sony announcing that the Tablet P is set to land on AT&T this Sunday, March 3.

Even when folded closed, there’s no denying that the Tablet P is bit of a beast. Besides the large bezels surrounding each screen, the displays themselves are Note-level 5.5-inchers. All things considered, this guy probably won’t be slipping into your pants pocket. That could be a problem, as needing a larger place to carry around the Tablet P seems to defeat the point of its folding construction.

The Tablet P is powered by a 1GHz Tegra 2, has a five megapixel main camera with VGA front-facer, and ships with Honeycomb 3.2 (an Ice Cream Sandwich update will come later). It made its international debut a few months back, with sales starting last November. AT&T will sell the tablet for $400 on-contract, or $550 free-and-clear.
