Sony Tablet P to hit AT&T on March 3?
If you fancy gadgets with unusual form factors, than this bit of news might interest you. The Sony Tablet P, which is a foldable dual-screen Android tablet, may launch on AT&T on March 3, if the pair of spy shots that we have here is to be believed. The device will be priced at $399 on-contract, and if you are not too fond of long term commitment, grabbing one for $549 contract-free is also an option.

But that is not all. According to the images, there will be a way of slashing $100 off the Sony Tablet P's on-contract price, namely if you also get a Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY. The smartphone is currently available for free with a 2-year contract, meaning that the devices can be purchased together for $399.

In case you need a refresher, the Sony Tablet P comes with two 5.5-inch screens and each of them has a resolution of 1024 by 480 pixels. The device is powered by a Tegra 2 dual-core processor and is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich. It is also worth noting that it can run on AT&T's HSPA+ network for fast web access on the go. The Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY, on the other hand, stands out with its slide-out gamepad making it clear that besides an Android smartphone, it is also a gaming device. It sports a 1GHz single-core Snapdragon S2 processor and a 4-inch LCD display.

Anyone thinking of taking advantage of the deal? Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Wow. This device feel's overpriced for something that should have released months ago. Sony you showed promise, now what are you doing? Or is it At&T? I mean very cool device but what market is it for, the extremely rich Anti-iPhone crowd?

seems very late to the party, it might've had a chance during the holiday season, but i don't think it will do very well now
