JAPANESE ELECTRONICS FIRM Sony has started selling its latest tablet, the Xperia Tablet S.
Unveiled at IFA in Berlin last week, the Sony Xperia Tablet S follows in the footsteps of the Xperia Go smartphone by being water resistant. According to Sony, the tablet is designed for "real-life use around the home and outdoors", which we think means that it is okay to take the tablet outside when it's raining.
The successor to the original Sony Tablet S also features Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 9.4in 1280x800 touchscreen, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1MP front-facing video calling camera and battery life of up to 12 hours. The Xperia Tablet S is also thinner than Sony's first tablet, measuring a skinny 8.8mm.
The Xperia Tablet S can be ordered on the Sony website, and Sony says it's now in stock. The firm is offering the 16GB WiFi-only, 16GB 3G + WiFi and 32GB WiFi-only models, which cost £329, £429, and £379, respectively.
