Inspired by the shape of a folded magazine, the Sony Tablet S is a gorgeous looking device!
Unfortunately all reports coming out of the USA (The Tablet S is yet to be sighted in Australia) are that the device has a very plastic feel and a hollow construction. Most people like to have a device that feels solid in their hands and put simply, this does not! But that’s not the only disappointment, the 9.4″ screen is reported to look fantastic, until the inevitable scratches get into the screen which is very easy to scratch as it’s not (hard to believe I know) made of gorilla glass meaning that the glass is essentially very soft and easy to scratch.
I’ve always been a big fan of Sony hardware, it’s elegant, simplistic, practical and usually very well designed. So if Ausdroid do manage to get our hands on one of these units on release in Australia, I’ll happily stick my hand up to review it in the hope that it is another stunning piece of hardware from Sony. In the meantime I can only hope that the reports on this device are exaggerated and that it is as nice as it looks but I doubt it. It just leaves me to wonder…
