While it's nice to see some nice high-end tablets enter the market, no way in hell I'm buying a Sony one given the way they support the rest of their Android devices. I'm not even going to get into Sony as a company in general...
Also that clamshell tablet looks ugly as fuck. Aside from the clamshell idea itself being terrible, there's way too much wasted space there. If it gets released looking anything like that, the screens better have some kickass speakers on either side.
This, so much. I looked at it and was like
its an interesting design but gotta check the price first. Such devices always come here expensive (if they ever do come) like the ipod sells here for around $600.
besides the fact that geohot aint gonna buy it hence hack it, the possibilities with this will be quite limited as the idevice market has grown quite large and ppl seem unlikely to shift to sony esp with their rep for many ppl
When it comes to the Android market, we really don't need geohot. Let him go hack Apple devices again or something. There's a couple dozen different devs just doing Cyanongenmod, and even if none of those guys want to deal with it some other aspiring hacker will eventually figure out how to do something with it. Doesn't really matter, though, as you don't need to hack an Android device to pirate shit on it anyways.
Regardless of the wasted space, I like clamshell design, simply because I'd be able to fit it in my pocket. Throw a d-pad and some buttons on there, and you've got me sold...if I ever bought a tablet. (unlikely)

"Design and specifications are subject to change without notice."
I saw these earlier today and had two thoughts.
Upon seeing the popularity of Nintendo's DS line, Sony decides to release their own DSi, sans buttons of course.
The codename for this thing is actually "S2" (I assume this stands for Screen 2, implying it has two, or rather Dual Screens)
Maybe I'm over-thinking this, but we've all seen the PlayStation Move...
I like the way they look, and the fact that they can play PlayStation games (no doubt meaning that we'd have to buy all of our old PlayStation discs again in a logical format) is pretty cool. But there is one thing that bothers me, there are no fucking buttons.
Look at that! The buttons overlap the game screen and are horribly placed. What if I need to press a shoulder button while I'm playing (anyone familiar with the Megaman Legends games know my concern)? Am I supposed to ask someone to stand on the opposite side and press it for me? That method wouldn't even work for the S2, only the S1.
Even overlooking all of that, what if I wanted to play Ape Escape? I can't see analog sticks working well at all on a touch screen.
It could be that I'm being bias, but you can't ignore the obvious inspiration and flaws.
Yeah the advantage the Android emulators have is that the touch screen buttons are well positioned for most games, plus you can connect a Wii remote with a Classic Controller to it via the Bluetooth connection on the Motorola Xoom, so playing most games works just fine and even the touch screen based control layouts aren't retarded and can easily be accessed by the players.
good fucking god...
OMG everyone is making tablets..Nyeh, nyeh, nyeh.. "WE can too!"

[Bias anti-sony alert Below
and lets make them repurchase all their purchases ALL OVER AGAIN.
Now our Tablet's
Triple the re-purchasing!
Why on EARTH would we actually think of a sensible account system where users can sync their purchases to our other devices?
Cause We Liek Monies.
PS : tablet on right is a stolen DS / Game And Watch design....and why does the crash bandicoot screen look like its being played under the Android emulator FPSE?
(the R and L button placement)..
They really want to be on all areas.
I don't like tablets but it's nice that the iPad has more competence.
the only thing I can see for this is that consumers will have more choices..and Apples cult culture of mindless sheep will decrease. (hopefully)...
there is just so many....*you kids these days and your card games, your technology your screen addictions and your Apple iPad and Motorola Xoom and your blackberry Playbook,and your Microsoft Tablet PC's, your Amazon Kindle, and your LG G-Slate, your HTC Flyer and your Dell Streak, your ASUS eee Pad, and your Acer Iconia, your Toshiba Regza and your Sony -
hey!...What happened to my money?..am I BROKE? XD
Warning: Spoilers inside!
Nah, Apple's cult culture of mindless sheep won't decrease. Sony's cult culture of mindless bulls will just get in the game.
pretty much...and they will still buy...
I would assume stuff bought on the PS Suite would be shared between other Sony devices using Android, so at least the tablets and Xperia phones could share content. Hopefully there'll eventually be PSN integration, to share at least PSX games between your Xperia/tablet/NGP and maybe PSP or PS3. OF course, anyone who buys all of them or even more than one probably deserves to be parted from his money anyways...
Sony fix PSN please
well said! XD
this could also go well with Apple devices...but at least they let you transfer your content to all your devices...imagine if your apps on your one iDevice were locked onto that device...and couldn't be transferred to another one...this is what Sony is doing with both NGP Xperia Users (to the best of my knowledge)
maybe Sony could learn something from them about VALUE
All you need from that really is the NGP and PS3 (or future ps4) and get a regular android.
After that I don't really see the need for a Sony (ds) tablet or Xperia play.
that's because Sony wants their hands into everything...like the legal sys- EEUNGH....almost started a flamewar
Sony need to stop branching out and fix what they've got.
