Sony Tablet S

Verge Review

While the company has been a bit slow on getting into the tablet game, the two devices we’ve seen (the Tablet S and the odd, folding Tablet P) have sparked quite a bit of curiosity. It’s not just about the unique designs, either. Sony is one of the few companies with a footprint and ecosystem big enough to potentially take on Apple in this one-horse game.

    The Sony Tablet S was the first Sony Tablet in Which i had very hi expectations of, but to be honest i am very disappointiedat the tablets performance. the tab might work better maybe in the States, but in international place this Tablet is terrible. the promising unique apps like the playstation store does not work neither does music, video, crash bandicoot, or pinball heroes. i can hardly ever sownload applications. the worst of all is that my screen cracks by itself!!! i have cracks all over my screen and i never dropped the tablet. maybe the temperature is the cause but non of the other samsung, apple, acer tabs that are common here have that issue :(.
