The news of Sir Howard Stringer's announcement comes from a recent report by the Japanese media giant Nikkei quoted by Bloomberg. However, it was never mentioned if the device will adopt Sony's conceptual “wrap” design, the rumored dual-screen folding one, or it will simply be a straightforward slate tablet like the ones we are familiar with. About the PlayStation part of the equation, hardcore gaming without any physical buttons can be a bit tricky, but if Sony has really decided to aim its tablet at the gaming crowds, we suppose that it will also introduce a matching wireless gamepad as well. All we have to do now is wait until photos of the tablet start leaking on the web.
