New Sony tablet looks interesting, but can it compete with the iPad
If you're a fan of Sony's Android tablets such as the Tablet S that launched a while back, you may be interested hear this. What appears to be a set of slides used for internal purposes at Sony has leaked online showing an unannounced tablet.
The tablet is billed as the Sony Xperia Tablet and is presumed to be the successor to the Tablet P. One of the slides shows that the new tablet is 8.8 mm thick at its thinnest point and 11.85 mm thick at its thickest point.
Those dimensions make it 42% thinner than its predecessor. The display of the new tablet is 9.4-inches, and it has a resolution of 1280x800. The operating system is said to be "at least" Android 4.0, though it would make sense for Sony to launch the tablet with
. The slides also show the tablet will be offered with 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB of internal storage and there'll be a version of the tablet with 3G mobile broadband.
The tablet will have integrated Bluetooth 3.0, a SD card slot for storage expansion, and stereo speakers. The tablet has a 6000 mAh battery and uses NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
The slides also show an interesting accessory cover that acts as a stand and has an integrated keyboard. That integrated keyboard cover is reminiscent of what
Microsoft has included with its Surface tablet
One of the slides lists tentative pricing for the tablet and various accessories. According to the slide, the 16 GB tablet will sell for $449.99, the 32 GB version will sell for $549.99, and the 64 GB version will sell for $649.95. The docking stand with the integrated keyboard is listed at $99.99.

RE: $449 wtf are they thinking?

clearly you don't understand that businesses are about generating profits. If you comprehended any of what I actually said, you'd realize subsidizing hardware means either breaking even, or more often than not, taking a LOSS on the sale in order to essentially gain marketshare in hopes that consumers will purchase something ELSE for the device at a profit and those profits will outweigh the initial loss.
Like I said, many of these companies solely profit on HW sales for these devices. Can you explain to ME why YOU are so entitled that Vendors should not profit so that YOU can feel pleased?
That's just not the way a business works. They want, well you know... to actually MAKE money, not PAY YOU to use there stuff at no profit. That makes NO sense.
