Sony Tablet P iPad rival UK release in time for Christmas

By Updated on

There several Android tablets now available on the market, each trying to compete with the dominance that the iPad has over it. For those that prefer Android devices to the Apple iOS devices, Sony has released a tablet in the UK just in time for Christmas which will be rivaling the iPad that might interest you, the Sony Tablet P.

Sony already has already enjoyed some success in the tablet market with the Sony Tablet S. it is a 9.1” tablet that offers similar features to the iPad and other Android tablets out there but has the unique ability to play PlayStation games on it as it is PlayStation certified, appealing to the portable gamers out there. The Sony Tablet P also has this ability which will work in its favor when it comes to sales.

The Sony Tablet P consists of two 5.5” screens that are hinged together, which allows it to be folded so it becomes more portable. Each screen has a resolution of 1240 x 480 and can be used as one big 11” screen. Alternatively the tablet also has the ability to run two apps at the same time with one on each screen. Its other features include a 5 megapixel camera on the rear and a front-facing VGA resolution camera, 4GB of storage, a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor and it will run Android 3.2.

As far as price is concerned, the Sony Tablet P isn’t the cheapest tablet available on the market. According to Liliputing, it is available at electronics retailer Dixons and costs £499.99. It is also available in France and those in the US will be hoping that the price becomes more reasonable as it becomes more widely available as they won’t want to be paying around $782 for a tablet.
