Large-size Sony tablet coming in the first half of next year?
According to a report published today, Sony might be joining Apple by offering a large-sized tablet in 2015. The report adds that Sony will soon be putting the tablet into mass production and would release it in the first half of next year. Apple has been rumored for some time to be working on a 12-inch version of the iPad, dubbed the Apple iPad Pro. The latter could go into production starting in the second quarter of next year and is said to be as thin as the Apple iPhone 6 with extra speakers on board.

Sony's large-sized tablet is rumored to include a 12.9-inch screen with a resolution of 3,840-by-2,400. Powered by a Snapdragon processor, the tablet is believed to feature an 8MP camera and be just 8.6mm thick. The Christmas Day report suggests that Sony would be aiming for the high-end with this slab, which would be priced above $1000.

Contract manufacturer Pegatron, whose assembly lines are already producing Apple iPad and Microsoft Surface tablets, is rumored to be involved in the production of Sony's large screen slate.
