Sony Mobile has launched another entry to the tablet market with its waterproof Xperia Tablet S at the IFA in Berlin.
At only 241 x 8.8 x 174 mm, the device is lighter and thinner than its predecessor, the Sony Tablet S, and offers an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor with a preinstalled Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system (OS).
The Sony Xperia Tablet S comes in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB built-in storage models and features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The Japanese tablet maker touts it is “designed for real-life use around the home and outdoors” to resist damages from unavoidable spills.
For multimedia, the Sony Xperia Tablet S provides various Sony digital signal processing (DSP) technologies.
Sony’s Walkman Clear Audio+ allows users to enjoy clearer sound “across a wide spectrum from deep lows to crisp highs”.
The Sony Xperia Tablet S gives owners full control of their entertainment system remotely through the company’s native infrared universal remote control, with increased macro function that keeps a timesaving sequence of commands for fast recall.
“Ask Xperia Tablet S to switch on your TV, cable box and home entertainment system, select inputs, adjust volume and more. Everything’s executed at a single touch, and up to six macros can be named and stored,” says Sony Mobile.
The Xperia Tablet S will be available starting September 7 in three sizes: 16 GB for $400, 32 GB for $500 and 64 GB for $600.
