Sony seems to have sprung a bit of a leak today and it appears this leak deals with a new Xperia branded tablet and it looks pretty promising. This new Sony tablet looks like it will be the next gen device for the company over their previous two tablets and will come sporting a Tegra 3 chipset.
Along with the leak of the tablet itself, a good amount of accessories as well are shown off. That tablet, measuring 9.4" (running at 1280x800) in size will feature a Tegra 3 quad-core chipset along with 1GB Ram to help it run smoothly. Other hardware includes 8MP rear camera teamed up with a 1MP front-facing camera, DLNA support, three sizes of storage: 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB with an SD slot as well. Powering it all is a beefy 6,000 mAh battery.
Along with the tablet, some accessories are shown off in the leaked image which include a few different covers, a stand for the tablet, speakers, a keyboard attachment and a few other little goodies. Overall the package, along with the accessories, looks pretty good and the tablet specs are pretty solid.
In terms of what version of Android this device will be running, the listing states that the Xperia tablet will have Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) installed out of the box although we suspect Jelly Bean will be available as an update fairly quickly. One other feature to note is that the Xperia tablet is slated to be 42% thinner than the S Tablet which will be a nice change.
Pricing wise we are looking at $449.99 for the 16GB model, $549.99 for the 32GB, and the 64GB model will go for $649.99. That isn't too bad at all pricing-wise for these tablets. Since Sony is releasing this tablet, you can be sure it will also be Playstation Certified as well which is a nice little bonus. So, who is all interested in this tablet, not considering some of the issues the S Tablet had?
