All our innovations folded into one
You're demanding and why shouldn't you be? You don't just want any old tablet. You want one that will let you enjoy PlayStation Certified games, access over 15 million songs, throw video straight to your TV without a wire in sight and even dim your living room lights. And that's just for starters. You want one that's slim and light, easy to hold in the hand for hours on end and a doddle to use. So when you fancy browsing the web, listening to music or reading books, it's all there ready to go with a swift swipe of your finger.
We love playing games
Such a great way to relieve stress, don't you think? Come home from work, pick up your tablet, let off a bit of steam with Crash Bandicoot, Grand Theft Auto or Cool Boarders. Did you know this is the first tablet ever that will let you download and play games from the PlayStation Store? You can even use your PlayStation 3 DUALSHOCK3 controller with it or customise your own on-screen controls. And if you just want to keep on gaming, go to Android Marketplace and choose from thousands of Android games. It's gamers heaven.
One remote to control them all
A tablet that works as a universal remote? Yes, you heard right. Start up the movie on your living room TV, turn up the volume on your home theatre system, dim the lights, all through your trusty tablet. Its built-in remote includes a 'learn' feature that works with all major brands so don't think you've got to have Sony equipment in your house. And as for all those remote commanders scattered over the coffee table and down the sides of the sofa…goodbye!
Throw your stuff around
You want things to be easy, fuss-free. So let's say you just spent a day out in town meeting friends. You took some pictures in the park and now you want to get them on the digital photo frame on the mantelpiece. Simple. Just grab and 'throw' them to the photo frame over your Wi-Fi. No setting up or connecting cables. No plugging memory cards in and out. Whatever you're watching or listening to on your tablet, you can watch or listen to on almost any internet connected TV, Hi-Fi or photo frame, wirelessly. It's quick and seamless, designed to make you grin rather than groan.
Just great for entertainment
This is a tablet that's made for fun. Tap the screen and get access to over 15 million songs, 1 million books, over 200,000 apps and the latest movies through the built-in Sony Entertainment Network, Reader Store and Android Marketplace apps. Sort out all your music and reading before you go on your hols. Banish the spectre of nights in with nothing on the box. Create your own army of apps. All in seconds using your index finger.
Shoot, edit and share
So you're sitting in a coffee shop when a couple of buskers come in and start playing one of your all-time favourite songs. Just before the management eject them with cries of 'On your bike, lads!', you manage to film their stoic performance on your tablet. All in glorious high definition with just a tap or two. Then as soon as they've gone, 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 become an Internet hit!
Never weighs you down
It's not just about weight but the way that weight feels as you move around. This is a very light tablet at under 600g, about as heavy as your average hardback but it's the unique off centre weighting that makes it so comfortable to hold for hours on end. You can be reading a book while walking, watching a movie while sitting or playing a game while standing and this tablet will always feel natural as the weight has been shifted closer to your palm. You'll find it feels almost like an extension of your hand, something you'd be happy to carry around every minute of the day.
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 touchscreen ever. No spinning egg timers or juddery scrolling. 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 the buskers playing in the coffee shop will look as real as the moment you filmed it. We call it realism.

It is solidly built, no creaking and feels like it could withstand some punishment.
Sony has played with the software but the tweaks it has made have in my opinion improved the user interface. Some really clever features, my favourite being the ability to categorise your apps in the main apps section. Also latest Android version (3.2) available now.
The unique shape makes this decent to hold and it really does work well. The angle makes viewing and typing a lot better, especially when using on a table.
Full size SD card included (see also dislikes)- cheaper than micro sd.
The universal remote feature is fantastic as far as it goes. It will get more refined as new versions appear (this is version 1.0). At the moment is does not support 'activities' which is more than one action (e.g switch on TV and then DVD player with one button press) but I'm sure this will improve.
I use the tablet with the optional Sony dock and really like the 'drop in charge system. The Samsung dock was fiddly to use and required two hands to remove as did the Xoom dock. This is easy and quick.
The screen is a unique 9.4". This is great as it gives you more pixels per inch than a 10.1" display resulting in a sharper image, great for watching movies. The viewing angles are also good and the slightly smaller screen is easier to navigate with your fingers.
I don't like:
When not using the dock the charging system / cord is fiddly and does not feel very durable.Read more ›
After having a long look at my options mentioned above I found there were three key things that made me pick the Sony over the Samsung or the Apple. These might not be key features for you but I do believe they are enough of a unique selling feature to make the Sony stand out. It still isn't perfect mind you and there are a couple of improvements that could be made to two of these key features, so I've added those in as well.
1) The IR remote control feature is hugely helpful and has allowed me to replace my 4 existing remotes for the TV, home cinema, music system and Sky+. So no need to buy that Logitech Harmony I was considering. On the downside unfortunately Sony haven't given the Tablet S the ability to control the PS3 via bluetooth - if they did that it would be a perfect device for controlling everything in my front room! I believe you could buy the IR USB add-on that Logitech produce for their Harmony remotes, but seeing as this tablet and the PS3 are both Sony I figure I shouldn't have to shell out for a third party piece of kit to make them talk to one another! Fingers crossed Sony will sort this out in the next update cos that would make it perfect.
2) The SD card expansion is a great feature.Read more ›
HOWEVER there is a simple solution to this. Simply download the following apps.
Quick Pic - This will allow you to view pictures from anywhere on the tablet including the SD card. It wil also allow you to play video from anywhere on the tablet.
PowerAmp - This will enable you to play music from anywhere on the tablet including the SD card. You can also create Playlists etc.
File Manager HD - Not absolutely nesessary but it will enable you to see all your files including those on the SD card.
OK Sony should have included this facility in it's players. They probably want us all to buy the 32k version - rather sneaky Sony. If you have a conscience you should fix this pronto.
Apart from that minor problem (which is easily overcome) this is an excellent tablet. Great display and great browsing experience. Remote control is a real bonus. In my opinion this tablet equals or even surpasses the Samsung Galaxy Tab and even the IPad 2. Hooks up to my HTC Desire wifi hotspot on 3 no problem.
Just buy it. You won't be disappointed.
