SE-Xperia » Xperia Tablet http://se-xperia.com Unofficial Sony Ericsson Xperia news blog Thu, 25 Jul 2013 11:38:43 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Sony release update for Xperia Tablet S http://se-xperia.com/sony-release-update-for-xperia-tablet-s/ http://se-xperia.com/sony-release-update-for-xperia-tablet-s/#comments Sun, 23 Sep 2012 00:46:02 +0000 http://se-xperia.com/?p=2448 The exciting Sony Xperia Tablet S hasn’t been out on the retail market for very long but, Sony have already released brand new software for their first ever Xperia tablet PC.

Sony have made the software update, known as release 5, available as an OTA (over the air) download and although this update doesn’t affect the Android version on the tablet – currently standing at version 4.0.3 or Ice Cream Sandwich, this update does apparently fix some issues with WiFi connectivity on the device and to improve performance with the connectivity generally.

If you haven’t had the update notification sent to your Xperia Tablet S yet, it may be worth checking manually to see if an update is available by going to settings-about tablet-software updates on your tablet.

Sony tear down the Xperia Tablet S http://se-xperia.com/sony-tear-down-the-xperia-tablet-s/ http://se-xperia.com/sony-tear-down-the-xperia-tablet-s/#comments Sun, 09 Sep 2012 08:58:26 +0000 http://se-xperia.com/?p=2437 It’s not unusual for us to see a tear down of the latest gadget and is normally done by iFixIt. On this occasion, while iFixIt may still do a tear down themselves, Sony have beat them to it this time. Yes, that’s right. Sony have performed their own tear down of the latest tablet entry, the Xperia Tablet S and have shared the results.

In the tear down, we can see the different components, ports and peripherals used inside of the tablet, such as memory, motherboard, LCD ribbons etc. In the tear down video, the Xperia Tablet S is also compared to last years Sony Tablet S and shows us how things have changed and been upgraded. Of course, Sony haven’t shared the cost of the different components like iFixIt do, so we don’t know how much the £329 tablet actually cost Sony to build.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S was also expected to go on sale in Canada at the same time but, there appears to have been a slight delay in getting the tablets sent out for Canadians.

Instead, Sony will begin shipping their 9.4 inch tablet starting from Monday September 10th and consumers should start receiving their tablet delivery shortly after this. To recap, the Sony Xperia Tablet S features a 9.4 inch display, 1GB of RAM, Android Ice Cream Sandwich, 1.3GHz quad core Tegra 3 processor and the choice of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB internal memory. The 64GB however appears to be limited to the US only for now.

Sony unveiled three new smartphones in the form of the Xperia T, Xperia V and Xperia J. Sony also announced that from now on their tablet PCs would fall under the Xperia branding and unveiled the Sony Xperia Tablet S.

The Sony Xperia T is the flagship handset featuring a 4.6 inch display, 13 megapixel camera, and a 1.5GHz dual core processor. The Xperia T will come with 16GB of internal memory but, will also support microSD cards. Sony have chose to keep the battery embedded like the Xperia S though. Available in black, white and silver the handset will go on sale in the next few weeks.

The Sony Xperia V will also feature a 1.5GHz dual core processor and a 13 megapixel camera. Other features include a 4.3 inch display, 8GB memory with microSD support and a removable battery. The Xperia V features the highest level of water resistance found on a smartphone. Available in black, white and pink, Sony will release the handset in Q4 2012.

The last of the announced Sony Xperia handsets is the Sony Xperia J. The Xperia J is the baby of the new handsets with a 4 inch gorilla glass display  and a 5 megapixel camera. The processor has also been downgraded to a 1GHz single core processor. Likewise internal memory is also lower, featuring only 4GB of internal memory but, again microSD cards are supported and the battery is removable. Ther Xperia J like the Xperia V will launch some time during Q4 and will also be available in black, white, pink as well as gold.

Finally we have the first Xperia branded tablet, a successor to the Sony Tablet S which was announced last year at IFA. The Xperia Tablet S features a 9.4 inch display and uses the Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset. Like most tablets, it will be available in both Wi-Fi only and 3G variants as well as different storage options: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

Other features of the Sony Xperia Tablet S include an 8 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 3.0 and a 600mAh battery which is stated to last for 10 hours during browsing. The tablet will also be ‘splash proof’ so great for using in the kitchen.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S is due to go on sale as early as next month starting at $400 for the 16GB model.
