- I’ve held the Sony Tablet S, it really “feels” very light, even compared to the iPad 2 or the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1. Love the sleek ergonomic design.
- The Universal Remote Control makes the Sony Tablet S a very good coffee table device.
- The IPS screen has very good viewing angles, but it’s a fingerprint magnet.
- I wish they had more content delivery service available for Singapore, like integrating their PSN content, video, music, e-books.
- If the Sony Tablet S had, 3G would be a perfect device.
- The Playstation games run very smoothly. Resizable and moveable onscreen controls and buttons.
- I think the touch responsiveness still needs to be better and I attribute that to Honeycomb rather than the hardware. However, it’s obviously more responsive than other Android tablet device.
- Uses a proprietary connector for charging and docking. Not sure if the microUSB can be used to charge the device.
