Sony Xperia Tablet S Hands-On (Video)

Sony’s newest Android tablet, the Xperia Tablet S, is running on Android 4.0.4 for now, but will be upgraded to Jelly Bean in the near future. In terms of design, it has a similar “wrap around” design to last-year’s Tablet S that some found to be a nice break from the slate form factor of all other tablets on the market. The Xperia S has a Tegra 3 quad-core CPU running at 1.4GHz. The display is 9.4″ and 1280×800 resolution. On the rear there is an 8MP shooter, and a 1MP camera on the front. Other goodies include HDMI and DLNA support, an SD card slot (yes, full SD), guest mode to protect your data from friends, water resistance, and a host of accessories that include various stands and a combined case/keyboard. You can order the Xperia Tablet S on September 7 for $399, $499, or $599 depending on whether you choose 16, 32, or 64GB of storage.
