Sony Tablet S Stories December 8, 2011



We already know that President Barak Obama and UK Prime Minister David Cameron have made the iPad their tablet of choice, but according to the Vatican Information Service, Pope Benedict XVI is opting for an Android powered tablet instead.

In order to turn on the lights of the world’s largest Christmas tree in Gubbio, Italy, yesterday the Pope used a Sony Tablet S to remotely trigger the lights on the 750 meter-high tree from his apartment in the Vatican Apostolic Palace. However, it’s likely this was just the preference of the developers who built the app necessary for the task, as the Pope has been spotted using an iPad in the past.

Sony Tablet S Stories August 23, 2011


Like every other company on the block, Sony is ready to get into the tablet game. The Sony S1 was announced earlier this year, but a new report from Engadget says the tablet will now be dubbed the Tablet S. The Tablet S will be rocking a 9.4-inch touchscreen and Android, and will hit stores sometime in the first two weeks of September.

At launch, the Tablet S will be shipping with Android 3.1, but will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich when it becomes available later this fall. Some other things to note about the device are a 5-megapixel shooter and 3-megapixel front-facing camera.  The price of the Tablet S is rumored to be $599, but that’s not confirmed yet. As for the S2, the S1’s successor, we’re not quite sure of it’s availability or if it will follow the same naming scheme.

Check out a hands-on of the device after the break:
