Today one of Sony’s upcoming tablet devices passed through the FCC. As well as the standard specs that we get from that, it prompted some insider leaks regarding pricing and showing some press shots of the device, which seems to be the XPERIA Tablet, a successor to last year’s Sony S Tablet.
So let’s start off with specs, the XPERIA Tablet will sport a Tegra 3 (quad core) processor, a 1 MP front facing camera, 8MP rear-facing camera, a 6000 mAh battery, it will presumably have at least 1 GB of RAM, and a snazzy Magnesium-Aluminum Alloy casing.
Storage wise we have three options, 16GB’s for $399.99, 32GB’s for $499.99, and 64GB’s for $599.99. Overall, as long as this thing gets it’s share of marketing, then I’d say those prices are pretty competitive.
Now, design wise the XPERIA tablet is still relatively unique. It has a slightly scaled back version of the folded magazine inspired look of the original. While it doesn’t have the same, almost wedge-like design, it still has a “folded over” area in the back that looks like it would be a comfortable point on the tablet on which to grip it. As of right now we’re looking at a September release date for this, and we should get a full press release with more information shortly before that.
