Sonyâ€™s first foray into the tablet scene may not have been as successful as they had hoped it would be, but theyâ€™re not raising the white flag just yet. As the saying goes, try and try until you succeed, and thatâ€™s exactly what theyâ€™re doing.
In fact, theyâ€™ve actually announced their first tablet treat for 2012 already â€“ the Sony Xperia Tablet S.
Itâ€™s name should be a dead giveaway, but in case it isnâ€™t, well, weâ€™ll go ahead and say it â€“ the Sony Xperia Tablet S is basically an updated version of the Sony Tablet S, which they debuted last year.
And when I say updated, I mean both in terms of design and specs.
The tear drop design has been tapered and straightened a bit, but you can still tell that the Xperia Tablet S draws inspiration from its namesake predecessor. It also got a special dose of splash-proofing to make it more durable against water, and another coating to combat fingerprints too.
As for the goods under the hood, Sonyâ€™s 2nd gen Tablet S packs a 1.GHz quad-core Tegra 3 CPU at the helm with 1GB of RAM, a 9.4-inch touchscreen display, an 8-megapixel sensor for the main cam at the back, a 1-MP HD cam on the front, infrared, WiFi, and Ice Cream Sandwich as its Android platform of choice.
Itâ€™ll begin retailing in the US in early September with the following price points: $399 (around Php16.8K) for the 16GB Xperia Tablet S, $499 (around Php21K) for the 32GB model, and $599 (around Php25.3) for the 64GB variant.
Reasonably priced, yes, but the question still remains though â€“ will this Sony Xperia tablet make it to the Philippines?
Guess we wait and see.
