Good Portable Tablet

By BigJim40

from California

Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

I bought a Tablet P last week with an eye for using it as a really portable tablet. I give it four stars based on my preliminary evaluation. Here I reveal some good things Sony forgot to tell us. What makes the P a good portable device? 1. Size: Its 7 inches by 3inches by 1 inch(closed) and it weighs about 13 oz. Regular tablets with 7 inch screens are about 7 by 4.5 inches. I can fit the P in my pants or jacket pocket, and the clam shell case makes a carrying case unnecessary. 2. Mobility: You can actually use it when the case is closed. For example, turn on the music player and, without turning the P off, close the case. The screens turn off, but the music continues to play. The P is obviously much bigger than an Ipod Nano, but the P does more. I updated the Google Maps app to the newest version and that gives me “off-line maps.� A map with about 10miles square size around my house used about 2 M memory. I tried that set-up walking around the area and it worked fairly well. Google offline doesn’t give step-by-step instructions but it will show you were you are on the map. The GPS worked when the P was in my hand, but it wasn’t too good in my pocket, just as my regular GPS works. The battery is removable, like in a digital camera. A back-up battery could be useful on the road, as it is with a camera. The battery is expensive, however. 3. Universality: Big claim! The AC power supply runs off 100-220 Volts at 50-60 Hz. That means you can operate the P in Europe using only a plug adaptor: no converter is needed. 4. Functionality: The 5 meg back camera is a decent camera. I could photograph a flyer and it was legible. I downloaded an app called “camscanner,� and converted the flier to a .pdf file. Very handy. I loaded the “Evernote� app in and it works fine: this will probably be my “productivity� app for taking notes 5. Media Handling: I could actually use the dlna program to receive photos and videos from my desktop computer, and I could send photos from the P to the computer. More very handy. Nuts and Bolts 1. Connections: I have not tried USB yet. My Bluetooth headset paired, but I don’t hear anything: this needs more investigation. Headphones work fine(audio is stereo), better than the mono speaker. You can improve the speaker sound by putting your finger over the speaker: that kills excessive highs. 2. The operating system is Android 3, not Android 4, and it doesn’t look like Sony will actually upgrade. Many apps need updating. The “Sony Select� app says YouTube is available for the P, but the link doesn’t work. Go to the browser and type in m.youtube.com. You get the video in the top screen, play list in the bottom screen. 3. The split screen is not as big a deal as some reviewers make out. The Sony apps are mostly set up put pictures on one screen and controls on the other. Some apps give you the option of two screen or one screen display. 4. Instructions: There aren’t any in the box except for the one page quick start. There is a “Help� app that gives some help. Go to Sony support and there’s more. 5. The usual self-maintenance apps are installed.: calendar, calculator, e-mail, contacts, browser, photo and video apps and stores, etc. They look competent. Conclusion I like this machine as a portable. If this is close-out time, they may not be for sale much longer. If the portability aspect is of interest to you, the P deserves a serious look

A tablet design for the rest of us

By myke

from Bloomfield, NJ

Pros

  • Compact, Practical for Tru Mobile Users

Cons

  • None so far

Best Uses

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    i am a grad student who has owned the iPad, the Sony Tablet S and now the Sony Tablet P. This device by far is the best of the 3 . I am also an experienced IT professional who works around and with technology everyday in the field of support services. I can tell you first hand this device is the most practical tablet on the market. If you are looking to buy a tablet to play games, look else. If you are busy professional who wants an all around device that get the job done with style and function, you want this device. Complaints about battery life are unsubstantiated. Proper use of this device will manage battery power for at least 7 hours but no one is using a tablet for 7 hours straight so complaints about poor battery life are false. The clam shell design in and of itself is worth its value compared to the screen on a standard tablet if it were accidentally compromised. I hope the Sony plans on improving on this design because i think it is a winner. Speed benchmarks and popularity is not why I bought the Sony Tablet P. but rather for its Ingenuous design and forward thinking in its conceptualization. I plan on keeping this tablet for a very long time and I hope the software upgrades to Android will follow. Thank you Sony for making a Tablet that leads instead of follows and something that is not only unique but truly functional beyond the "hype" of other Tablets. Oh, and by the way, I do play games on the Tablet P as well as on my PS3 system even though i don't consider myself a hardcore gamer. That's what the Vita is for.

    Great device for what I need.

    By TamSE3P

    from Georgia, USA

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    I have had mine since the day of launch in the USA. It has absolutely met my needs in a tablet form factor. Unlike some people, I prefer something that's bigger than a phone, yet small enough to carry around all the time. I have owned the two previous generation of iPads and I've always found that I would leave them at home because I felt like an idiot using it out in public trying to price match things or just trying to perform email options. I like the fact that I can just slip it in my back pocket, have web browsing functionality anywhere, and getting all the things I need in a mobile device without it being too big. A lot of people say the border sucks, but it never really bug me much because the split screen isn't all that distracting, plus, you need to have a place to hold it. Obviously, a next gen model should put the screens much closer and make the overall package much smaller. I have had many compliments on the device and everyone that has seen it said it was very innovative and super cool. Even my colleagues with iPads have thought it was unique. The only thing I dislike most about this tablet is the fragmented android system. Maybe I would have preferred something more Sony proprietary but using android seems logical as it has a lot of application support and that is a big selling point. All in all, I definitely recommend this product to anyone interested in a tablet and it's definitely a great product that Sony has created.

    Nextgen Convergence

    By Phablet

    from California

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    I think the S2 might represent the first generation of a future all-in-one phablet type device. It would be nice to see a version 2 of this device shrunk down when closed to be the size of a cell phone, running Windows 8, and be a phone, tablet and PC, that could plug into a docking station and drive a big display, keyboard and a mouse. Thus Sony would be leading the convergence trend towards one device that does it all

    Something more to be desired

    By AlwaysSony

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    I have everything Sony so my opinions are usually bit bias, however, in a market saturated by smartphones with big screens, I am not sure how this well fair. I was the first one to grab up the Tablet S when it first came out hoping for a portable device to semi replace my laptop. I believe people are looking for a replacement to their portable devices and not add to it. Even though the Tablet P is portable...it will not replace a smartphone so why market a device like this. Turn this into a smartphone and I think Sony has a real potential at dominating the smartphone market.

    Will not buy

    By ahsan24

    from Washington, DC

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    Although a SONY fan, reasons I'll not buy the P tablet are: 1. Split screens 2. Large borders, small screen 3. Oval shapes 4. Miniscule internal memory I'd prefer SONY comes-up with a 7" flat stylish well built device with high resolution screen and packed in features & appx. 64GB storage. I prefer a flip open if it has keyboard.

    Promising tablet

    By Chispo

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    This tablet looks different from what is currently on the market, But why you are excluding the IR remote control as in S series? That feature was really convenient. Also a lack of HDMI or SD card slot? I hope you include it on a docking station And last but not least please improve the supported videos

    Has Potential

    By Jetranger

    from Toronto, Ontario

    Comments about Sony 5.5" Dual Screen 4G Tablet:

    In that even some smart phones a fraction of the size come with 64GB of memory, and dual core processors ... it is hard to imagine a tablet like this having only 4GB. My 3 year old cell phone has 16GB and I am constantly running out of room. I'm not sure why they cannot fit more memory into such a large device. I was so looking forward to buying this product, but it seems obsolete right out of the gate.
