All our innovations folded into one
You’re looking for a tablet that’s unlike anything else out there. 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 shoot HD video in a few easy taps. And that’s just for starters. How about styling? All look the same to you? Not this one. It has a clamshell design that folds shut when you head out so you can carry it in much the same way you’d carry a book or a magazine. It’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, open it up and off you go with a swift swipe of your finger.
Load up some games
You come home from work, feeling a bit stressed, need to turn off and relax. What better way than a few levels of Crash Bandicoot, a spin through the cities of Grand Theft Auto or some fat air in Cool Boarders? And if you go to Android Marketplace, you can choose from thousands of Android games. It’s gamers heaven.
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.
Get into your entertainment
Life needs to be fun and this tablet delivers. 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 favourite music and novels before you meet your mates at the airport. Make boring nights in with nothing on the box a thing of the past. Create your own army of amusing apps. All in seconds using your index finger.
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'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. This isn't quite such a problem as might be anticipated. Using the screens for web browsing works well and Sony and partners have a number of key apps that take advantage of the two screens. So the mail software, the calendar, and the basic text editing software all work well with typically app controls or a keyboard occupying the second screen.
3. Of particular note in terms of apps that use the two screens is the Sony reader e-book software. This displays text, or pages, on each screen, when the tablet is held in portrait fashion just like reading a paper book. Plus as Sony have long been producing ebook readers their ebook store is well stocked.
4. As you'd expect for a premium-priced device, build quality is very good, the screens are bright and clear, and the tablet is good at multi-tasking.
5. I haven't owned a tablet before that's 3G enabled as well as having WiFi. Much to my surprise this is useful on the go with no wifi and the tablet switches between wifi and 3G seamlessly.
6. As a iOS user, while some of the apps don't have the Apple polish, the built in GPS (not something that comes with a wifi iPad) and the navigation software is brilliant.
7. Memory can easily be extended by buying a 32Gb microSDHC card which are now very cheap.
8. The tablet ships with Android 3.2 but can be upgraded via the Sony website to 4.0 - ice cream sandwich.
So overall if you need an ultra-portable tablet, this is for you. In fact you probably own one already. If you have an 10 inch screen tablet already you'll likely want to continue to use that for most purposes but this tablet is good on the go and some things work very well - email and ebook reading in particular. The 3G is really good when out of wifi range and finding a 3G tablet at a good price is difficult. And this tablet is different, its not . . . tablet like in shape. For the price I'd recommend it, so four stars.
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.
1) It's marketed as a tablet, but in fact it is rather an Android 4.0 UMPC, for people who want a small communication device and think of the second screen as a keyboard which will also display information, given that your application uses the device properly. In addition one gets Androids multi media features but this should not be the main reason for buying this tablet, because most others will do a better job there. If you intend buying a really small form factor UMPC with 3G and WIFI, this is the only device which is currently in production and available in Europe.
2) Battery life is definitely too short and I will need a backup for my occasional long distance flights.
My impression so far is that the tablet P is by far better than its really bad reviews suggest. This is because most reviewers and probably even Sony misinterpreted the target application and audience of the tablet P. At the current price of just around 200 EUR (Amazon recently sold them for 150 GBP) the tablet P is a real bargain.
Sony support on the phone are next to useless - in shops the people are often much better - but after my experience I would recommend not wasting time or money on this tablet.
The Sony P is currently extremely cheap and available online for a lot less than £200, but there are a few other negative features to weigh up against convenience: there is a proprietary charger, a long charge time, two large bezels in middle of the two screens and apparently no native wifi tethering with the ICS update and no hope of Jelly Bean. I could have lived with all this for the portability and low price but the quality I experienced was just too poor.
