Japanese multinational conglomerate, Sony, has joined the tablets race as its 3.2 Android Honeycomb supported Tablet S makes its way to the North American markets.
Although the sleek design and company’s history would play a major role in this gadget’s sales but the market has been very unpredictable in the fast few months.
Tablet S focuses more on people who are currently not able to get their hands on Apple’s iPad due to budget constraints. Samsung’s Galaxy Tab is another tough player of the market as it has gained much popularity.
Both the tablets are being offered for the same price of $499. Sony’s design is an ergonomic folded magazine one and is lightweight. Galaxy, on the other hand, is equally up for the thinness war and comes with amazingly vibrant colorful display. Thanks to the huge sale that offered HP’s TouchPads for $99, one rival was moved from Tablet S’s way.
Another interesting feature is that Tablet S will be supporting PlayStation Suite, DLNA. The machine is 3G and 4G compatible and users will be able to use countless apps on it. Sony’s name would be enough for many users plus Android OS would make the choice even easier.
According to few reviews, Sony is not just another Honeycomb table for it offers a variety of unique apps apart from its ergonomic design. The integrated IR universal remote control is something not being offered by any other tablet in the market.
The critics, however, are also of the opinion that Sony could have played better with the colors and brightness of the screen. The track record of this company in industrial design ranging from hardware engineering to gaming and other media has remained phenomenal and thus many think that Tablet S will be the toughest contender against Apple’s iPad in the near future.
