The Sony Xperia Tablet S didn't make a huge splash when it was announced last week at IFA, seeing as it looked like not much more than a marginally souped-up version of its predecessor, but this batch of video demos may change your mind. They go over a lot of the new software features that Sony is launching in their latest tablet, including guest mode, small apps, the universal remote, a Walkman app, and the custom multimedia album. 

The Sony Xperia Tablet S is a decent step up from the original Sony tablet. Here's a quick run-down of the specs. A closer look is available over here in our hands-on video.

  • Slim new aluminium body and splash-proof design
  • 9.4” HD display (1,280 x 800 IPS) with OptiContrast Panel with low-friction coating
  • NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and Android 4.0.3 operating system
  • Weight: 1.31 lb
  • Various experiences with original applications and Sony’s network services
  • 1-megapixel HD front camera
  • 8-megapixel rear camera
  • SD Card slot
  • 16GB internal storage

The videos were uploaded around the same time as the announcement, but was tucked away in a separate YouTube channel for Canadian Sony Trainer reps. Are you guys finding any particularly interesting features in the videos below?

Sony Xperia Tablet S gets bunch of official video demos


I saw some demos of the Xperia S Tablet and Xperia phone the last two nights on A&E's Coma 2-night movie. Interesting product placement. They never really showed the name Sony anywhere but I knew what they were. The average consumer and viewer of this movie would have had no clue.

There was one interesting scene where the girl was taking pictures with her white Experia phone inside the hospital that was housing the coma patients and during that emailed one of the photos. Later she was captured by security and they erased all the photo's she took without knowing she emailed one of them, which she was later able to retrieve. If she had G+ auto-upload on, she would have had ALL the pics uploaded!

I think several of these features are the future of tablets, particularly guest mode/multiple user ids and small apps/multitasking. Looking forward to the day when any app can be run that way or can run any two apps side by side in portrait mode while the tablet is in landscape.
