Sony Tablet S project manager gave a quick overview of the tablet in the midst of other Sony products – Sony Bravia and Sony DVD receiver.

A quick demo was performed to illustrate the key functionalities and I am amazed of how the Sony Tablet S was able to play video and music directly to a DNLA enabled TV.

I must say, the UI response is pretty good, comparable with the new Samsung Tab 10.2 or Motorola Xoom. This is due to a similar adoption of the new Android Honeycomb 3.1 OS.

I am also impressed with the wedge design of the tablet profile which was touted to give a better weight distribution when one is holding the tablet with one hand. It also allows the tablet to be place at an elevation on any flat table top.

Dislikes:

– Feels cheap due to plastic casing
