Sony Tablet S gets major update in the U.S. – not Jelly Bean, but surely the next best thing

by: AdrianSeptember 28, 2012
Sony’s been rather busy lately, releasing a bunch of new phones, as well as a pretty well-received tablet, but that doesn’t mean it has forgotten all about slightly older devices. The Tablet S has never been extremely popular, despite being upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich back in April, but maybe it’s finally time for the 9.4-incher to shine.

Sony not phased by tablet market price wars

by: nathanSeptember 5, 2012
Sony has officially spoken and it says the company, under the brand name Xperia, will provide quality products at a price it deems fit. In other words, Sony does not wish to be drawn into a bidding war between competition and itself; it aims to entirely outdo competition.

Sony Tablet S successor may be arriving soon

by: LucianJuly 11, 2012

The Sony Tablet S has been one of the tablets with a unique and interesting design in the market. While a lot of people were trying to replicate the slab form factor for their tablets, Sony tried to think about how to make a 9″ tablet that is easy to hold with one hand. Going by the initial reviews, they seem to have succeeded more or less, with reviewers declaring that it feels lighter than it is really is when holding it. Many claim it feels more like a 7″ tablet.

The 10″ tablets are usually hard to hold with one hand, because of the (still) fairly bulky weight (600+ grams, ideal weight for [...]

ICS rolling out to Sony Tablet S, get it with $50 rebate and free cradle through May 12

by: AdrianApril 27, 2012

It took Sony a while to update the dual-core Tablet S to Android 4.0, but Sony fans rejoice, as the 10-incher is finally getting its long awaited tasty scoop of Ice Cream Sandwich.

According to a post published earlier today on Sony’s official blog, Tablet S owners should have already received prompt messages for a system update over-the-air. If, however, you own a Tablet S and you are yet to receive the notification, you should check for a better Wi-Fi connection or reboot your slate one or two times.

Once you get the prompt message, you only have to click OK, and, in just a few short minutes, your tablet experience should be brought to the next level. A next [...]

Mystery Sony Tegra 3 tablet spotted in benchmark results

by: Bogdan PetrovanMarch 20, 2012

Sony has drawn criticism (including from us), for the lackluster device lineup that they’ve shown at MWC, a few weeks ago. I am talking about the conspicuous absence of a quad-core flagship, something that even ZTE and Huawei, the new kids on the Western markets block, have managed to deliver, and, in the case of Huawei with stunning success.

And Sony doesn’t do any better in the tablet department either. The admittedly original Tablet P and Tablet S are seen by consumers as exotic novelty items, rather than able-bodied competitors in the cut-throat tablet market. Again, the lack of a quad-core chipped powerhouse is glaring. How did Sony respond to these critics? We’ll [...]

Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus vs Sony Tablet S

by: JoseDecember 15, 2011

Portability is one of the key factors that made Android tablets a big success. These book-like gadgets are pretty much everywhere nowadays. Almost every month we see makers release new tablets and upgraded models of existing ones. They can’t help it–these devices are selling like hotcakes.

Let’s take a look at two of the newcomers (relatively speaking) right now and we’ll see if these tablets are worth our money. We will take a peek at the Sony Tablet S and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. We will compare the two Android tablets side by side, so we can determine which one will outshine the other.

Sony Tablet S Gets Video Unlimited Via Android 3.2 Honeycomb Update

by: Elmer MontejoSeptember 23, 2011

Owners of the Sony Tablet S (yes, that folded-magazine-type tablet, formerly called the Sony Tablet S1) will soon have access to Video Unlimited, which is what Sony calls its video store. The new feature supporting Video Unlimited comes to Sony Tablet S users through the currently rolling out Android 3.2 Honeycomb update.

The Sony Tablet S initially came out with Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and Sony promised to provide Android 3.2 updates “soon.” At that time, customers took it with a grain of salt, since in almost all cases, promised updates usually come later than sooner. But, Sony seems to have delivered on its promise.

The upgrade requires downloading a [...]

Sony Tablet S Competitive Against the iPad 2

by: Edmund ApostolSeptember 12, 2011

There are many challengers to the iPad 2 from the Android side of the mobile platform competition and Sony has just recently unveiled another fighter. The Tablet S is the electronics giant’s latest tablet computer offering which will be powered by the Android Honeycomb operating system. Here’s an outline of how the Tablet S measures up.

Under the hood

Versus the iPad 2’s 1GHz Apple A5, the Tablet S will be driven by Nvidia’s Tegra 2 with an ARM Cortext-A9 CPU. The Cortext-A9 is a multicore mobile processor capable of out-of-order executions which allow for overall faster response. Apple A5 and Nvidia Tegra 2 are both system-on-chip implementations of the [...]

Sony Tablet S Arriving on September 16th for $499. Will You Buy One?

by: LucianSeptember 6, 2011

Sony is one of the biggest consumer electronics companies in the world, and their products are usually pretty high-quality, at least compared to most other manufacturers. So as the tablet market was taking off, they couldn’t be left out of the game, and they decided to enter the market not with one, but two tablets, and try to make them as “different” as possible from their competitors.

I’d say they succeeded doing that, but it remains to be seen if the customers will prefer their tablets over the ones from their competitors. The Sony Tablet S, which is the larger 9.4″ one is set to launch on September 16th, but is already available for [...]

by: Carl ParkerAugust 31, 2011

Sony’s odd-shaped tablet, the Sony Tablet S (formerly called the Sony Tablet S1) could be arriving in Canada as early as September 14.

MobileSyrup was able to grab a copy of an invitation said to be from Sony Canada.  The document invites the recipient to be the first to see the new Sony Tablet when it reaches Canada.

Only the top portion of the invitation is visible, but it does reveal some details.  For instance, Sony Canada is holding a Customer VIP Night in its Sony Head Office in Toronto on September 14 or 15.

No detail about the price or the availability of the Sony Tablet S has been announced yet.

Ever since Sony announced its Sony Tablet S [...]
