Sony Carry On with the whole tablet thing

Having never released a sales figure (as far as I know) for the Tablet S and P devices, which were hyped with PlayStation branding, Sony is having another go, with a US$400 Xperia Tablet S. It keeps the original's unique tear design but adds the smartphone brand name to increase some market awareness.

The Xperia Tablet S features a Tegra 3 chip, Android 4.0 (not 4.1, cough) and up to 64GB of built-in storage, an SD card slot, a 9.4-inch (1,280 x 800) IPS screen and a chunky 6,000mAh battery promising lengthy play time. It will be PlayStation Mobile compatible, but as a full Android tablet should offer the full range of smartphone gaming. However, since PSM is dropping PS one support, no Crash Bandicoot!
