Sony Tablet S (WiFi) Available in Singapore at the end of October, pre-orders now

The Sony Tablet S is an Android 3.2 Honeycomb device with a NVIDIA Tegra 2 mobile processor, 9.4-inch LED-backlit TruBlack IPS screen (1280×800) and WiFi (no 3G), weighing only 598g and its unique asymmetric design conveys a sense of lightness. Sony Tablet S comes with a 5MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front camera, infrared to enable Universal Remote Control, DLNA to connect to other devices and the first Playstation Certified tablet.

A range of optional accessories is available for Sony Tablet S, including a cradle, AC adapter, LCD screen protector, carrying case and USB adaptor cable, as well as a Bluetooth keyboard.

Sony Tablet S is available in both 16GB and 32GB version for $668 and $798 respectively and will be available in Singapore at the end of October 2011. You can pre-order the Sony Tablet S at all Sony Stores (except T3), Sony Centres, Best Denki, Courts, Harvey Norman.

Initial thoughts:

  • 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.
That’s all folks. Would you buy the Sony Tablet S when it comes out? Or better still, pre-order the Sony Tablet S?
