No setting up or connecting cables. No plugging memory cards in and out.

Shoot, edit and share

Just imagine for a moment you’re sitting in the park minding your own business when someone comes over and starts serenading you. It’s a bit embarrassing but you cover it well. You grab your tablet and with just a tap or two, manage to film the romantic performance in glorious high definition. When you finally get rid of the troubadour with a few coins, you edit the clip with another tap or two and send to facebook or YouTube for the world to enjoy. You never know, it might be the web hit of the year!

Such a pleasure to carry

Look high and low but you won’t find a tablet that’s as easy to carry around as this one. Its clamshell design folds up so you can stroll around with it in one hand or put it under your arm or even in your bag. At just 370g – about as heavy as your average paperback – it certainly won’t weigh you down either. And it will always feel natural in the hand, whether you’re reading a book while walking, watching a movie while sitting or playing a game while standing.

All of the web

Such an exciting place, be a shame if you couldn’t enjoy it in all its glory. You can get on the Internet in seconds with this tablet, surf faster and explore with ease using our most fluid touchscreens ever. Watch the web across one large screen or browse on one while doing something completely different on the other. An efficient Android operating system lets you skim seamlessly from page to page and enjoy the web the way it was meant to be enjoyed with full support including Adobe Flash for silky animations and video. That clip of you being serenaded in the park will look as real as the moment you filmed it. We call it realism.

I fell in love with the design of this tablet when I first saw it in Tokyo last year. Having picked one up at launch and lived with the system for a while, I can say it's a solid attempt and injecting variety into a very bland market, but for Sony the experiment seems to have failed.

On the plus side, it's a lovely looking gadget. It feels very solid, and looks great open or closed. The two screens are bright and sharp, and where split screen apps are utilised, they look great. Sony has done a wonderful job of customising Android for its devices, and the OS has never looked better.

The main problem is the gap created by the bezel. There are very few split screen apps, so you have to work your way around this ugly black bar that sits in the middle of the screen. Reading websites is a real chore, as you have to stretch the browser to read lines that are often split in half by the two screens. Games are pretty much unplayable, and video takes the only option it can, and uses a single screen, reserving the second for controls.

As the unit has failed to really find an audience (I also own an iPad, and it quickly became apparent which I wanted to use more often) app support has been pretty much non-existent. I did write to a few app authors who were prepared to make changes, but in the end I lost patience with the device itself and sold it.

As with a lot of Sony products, this one launched into an aggressive market and was promptly abandoned by Sony to sink or swim. Since even Sony won't support the device properly, it's destined to go the way of the Sony Rolly - unique, bold but ultimately forgotten. A real shame.

The price of this Tablet, no doubt shortly to be discontinued by Sony in the UK (although another version seems imminent in Japan) has been dropping like a stone over the last few weeks - at time of writing in August 2012. The Sony P Tablet was only launched in November in the UK at a list price of £499.

I've been using a tablet computer since the first iPad launched and my main tablet is, and will remain, an iPad 3 - or `new iPad'. However at its current price point I decided to invest in this Android device.

First let's deal with the negatives: 1. This is very much a two-screened device. There's a fairly large frame around each screen, and crucially along the hinges where the two screens meet. While looking at web pages across both screens works fairly well, watching video, or reading an e-book (with the exception of the Sony Reader app) doesn't work too well.
2. Only 4Gb of storage is built in.
3. Ongoing support from Sony might be limited.
4. The inbuilt mono speaker is awful. Some apps seem to get more volume out of it but for many the volume is simply too low to hear sound.
5. The charger is bespoke, and the tablet won't charge through a USB. Additional chargers are expensive and there isn't a recommend charger for use in the car although the power on plug looks fairly standard so it might be possible to track down a car charger with the correct voltage.

But there are a number of advantages with the tablet:
1. It's small and light, about half the weight of an iPad but feels even lighter. Pretty much you can take this tablet anywhere, and going through airport security it can stay in your bag.
2. As noted under negatives, the screens used together have a black border between the them.

At £180 this is a bargain. If you accept this as what it is ie two screens and use it this way then you wil find it very good. The latest update to 4.03 makes beter use of the two screens, there is a third party browser SPBrowser which allows you two have seperate browser sessions on the upper and lower screen.
The display is incredible bright and vibrant and everything runs fast and smooth. I bought this to replace my mp3 player as it was now cheaper to buy the tablet P than a Walkman and audio playback through headphones is truly excellent.

But don't buy this if you follow the herd

As it turns out a brilliant format if you use a tablet for more 'adulty' things ie little of the gaming!
Remember Psions and some Nokias? Well this is like these.
Very pocketable and nowhere near as embarrassing or clunky as a full-on tray of glass and plastic..

There are many well-documented issues with its physical format.
But for certain things it works far better than the herd answer - that it must be a slab.
much more pocketable too...

a stylus would solve other issues - this is made of two quite small screens.
Shame that Sony stopped short of fully enabling a phone on it.
With that it could have been a real contender given that upscale phones are now ballooning to ridiculous proportions.

Unfortunately of the two we bought one loses 3g connectivity randomly.
This appears to be a common gripe with no publicly documented fix. It may not be a hardware issue, who knows
Incredibly frustrating when you expect reliability.
Its shape is also too rounded and very smooth so it slips out of pockets and briefcases a little too readily

a product ahead of its time.
Well worth considering in spite or because of its physical limitations
and never fails to get noticed at meetings.

a nice and very usable tablet but a shame that me-too reviews [and a wildly optimistic price point] killed its prospects
