Clamshell shaped Sony Tablet P gets UK launch

Clamshell shaped Sony Tablet P gets UK launch
The Sony Tablet P is now available in the UK for 499GBP which translates into $773 USD. Instead of a slate design, the Sony Tablet P's clamshell form factor allows it to be equipped with dual 5.5 inch "TruBlack" displays, each with resolution of 1024 x 480. Sony says that by manipulating the refraction of light between the LCD and the screen, it is offering a display with vibrant colors and sharp images. The model for sale at Sony's web site and UK stores has 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity.

Sony might be counting on the unique look of the device and the dual screens to compete in a crowded tablet arena as the specs are just about what every high-end tablet is wearing these days.  The Sony Tablet P has a dual-core 1GHz Tegra 2 processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM aboard (on its web site, Sony is playing up the multitasking capabilities of the tablet). You will find a pair of cameras on the tablet with a 5MP shooter on back and a .3MP one on front. 4GB of native storage can be pumped up to as much as 36GB using a microSD card and Sony says that the battery in the tablet will last 7 hours.

One feature that Sony can deliver that other tablet manufacturers can't is PlayStation Certification which means that the Tablet P offers Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes out of the box and you will be able to download a multitude of original PlayStation games from the Android Market.

If you live in the States and are wondering if you will see the Sony Tablet P make the trip across the Atlantic, the device is expected to come to the US for AT&T in both a Wi-Fi only and LTE 4G version.
