Japanese electronics giant is doing its best to create some hype or sense of eager expectation around its up and coming Xperia tablet, but everything seems to pale in the face of Apple’s iPhone 5 and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.
The American and Korean giants simply rule the smartphone and tablet
markets and the mobile enthusiasts have apparently been brain washed.
Users are simply hypnotized be commercials, hype and marketing and Samsung
’s own study found out that many Galaxy Tablet / Galaxy Note
buyers acquired the devices thinking that they were buying an iPad.
Sony’s Xperia is reportedly
not much different from a technical point of view from many other Tegra 3 tablets
currently on the market and we can’t see what the company could do to make it unique and more desirable for the potential buyers.
On the other hand, the new Xperia tablet
has its own original design and it clearly is not trying to emulate anything from Samsung
The device retains the wedged-shape from the previous generation and likely allows Sony to fit it with a more capable battery that should be able to power the gadget for more than 10 hours of continuous use.
The expected screen size is 9.4”, but unfortunately Sony is not going for a 4:3 format as the tablet
is rumored to sport a 1280 by 800 pixel resolution.
Some say that the new Xperia
tablet will also become a universal remote for every Sony apparatus the user might have in his house, but there’s no certain information on that.
The top model should come with a rather large 64 GB of NAND
storage capacity, WirelessN, Bluetooth 3.0, 3G, GPS, an SD card reader and an 8MP camera on the backside and a simple 1MP front-facing video device.
