Sony releases new tablet, is once again extremely late to the party After over seven months of delays, Sony has released its foldable Tablet P device.
The tablet will be available on Sunday via AT&T, which will be offering the device on-contract or off. The tablet will cost a shockingly high $550 with no contract, and $400 with a two-year contract.

Running on Android 3.2, the device has dual 5.5-inch displays with 1024x480 resolution each, a 1GHz Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, dual cameras 0.3/5MP and just 4GB internal storage.

The only saving grace for the tablet is 4G HSPA+ capability.

If you were to sign up with a contract, AT&T offers two options, 3GB of data for $35 or 5GB of data for $50.

I don't think they were of the right mind when they came out with this monstrosity. It's overpriced, and way under powered. They must think that the Sony brand name has the same amount of "JooJoo" as the Apple brand name. It doesn't. Not to mention that they are way late to the party. It's almost as if they're testing the water, but don't want to plunge all the way in. But they want to be able to say that at least they were in the water.

Not even a good time to talk about this release with the hype of the new Ipad getting ready to start!

True that! While not being a fan of Apple, I gotta admit: Comparing the Sony monstrosity to the Apple iPad is like comparing the wave made from a pebble dropping into the water to a wave made from a tsunami.

The $199 quad-core (Tegra 3)7" ASUS Tablet is far, far more interesting than this POS.

sony caters to 1% of the total population or less, slowly and surely they will get bankrupt someday like eastman kodak, good luck to them.
