Seriously, it boggles our mind to even know that this dual-screen wielding tablet is powered by a 3,080 mAh battery, which is even less capacity than the one used by the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. Rightfully so, our concerns are justified as its battery life is abysmal with the Sony Tablet P. Voracious with its appetite, we’re able to get to the 10 hour mark on normal usage before it’s completely tapped out – and this isn’t even LTE! Disappointing to the max we have to admit!


So what can we say about the Sony Tablet P? Well, we still have to give credit to Sony for producing something that’s uniquely different – especially for a tablet. On paper, two displays sounds mightily tantalizing, but when it actually boils down to execution, it miserably fails because of the supremely annoying bezels that detract our attention from other things. Throw in that its hardware is seemingly dated now that we’re seeing more quad-core devices, it doesn’t get any better for this clutch bag like tablet. To make matters worse, its pricing is set to $400 with a 2-year contract or $550 outright, which still seems a tad bit steep for what it’s worth. Besides its cooling looking design, there’s nothing extraordinarily impressive about this one, and simply, it ends up being nothing short of forgettable.
