Even if the puppy dog look yet so sweet: as Android Tablet it has a inherently hard to maintain – especially if you like the Sony Tablet S for the same price (16 GB without mobile phone from 479 euro) into the ring against the superiority of the ubiquitous superstars Apple iPad. There, the customer asks your way whether he should not just buy the original of Apple manufacturer’s. The logical consequence: as in the Smartphone market, the Androids in the Tablet sector with a global share of about a quarter of Anders play yet not dominant role.

Distinctive hardware

Sony is therefore the right thing: the Japanese put on independence in both form and function. The Tablet S is modeled after and slightly thicker on one side of a folded magazine. The first purely optical design stunt proves extremely practical in everyday use: In landscape mode on the table is lying the 598 grams light Tablet S look cheap angled, you has it in portrait mode in hand, provides the thickening stability.

On closer inspection the plastics used though not very high-quality work, processing is but good. All handles and interfaces are well set and preside over misuse protected in lateral niches – only the flap over the USB connection and the SD slot looks a bit windy.

When the hardware equipment, Sony adds first again in the link: the Tablet is S a NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor with 1 GHz powered, the 1 GB RAM to the page, there. The 16 GB memory of our test model are the user around 13 available. For 599 euros, there is the 16 GB version with UMTS module, the 32-GB model for 578 euro is not to have mobile phone.

GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-FI are standard, as well two cameras in all versions – one with 5 megapixel camera on the back, one with 0.3 on the front for video calling. You are looking in vain for an HDMI video output – for this, Sony has a different technique in the quiver; more on this later. SD slot recognizes also SDHC memory cards, a full memory does not offer the slot however, need to copy the files to the correct edit in the internal memory – videos run directly from SD.

Sony goes its own way with the built-in infrared transmitter and receiver. It is controlled by a pre-installed software lets you use S as a universal remote control for TV and other entertainment devices the tablet. Exemplary: The software is not limited to Sony models, she can even learn the control codes of overly exotic specimens.

Fast and beautiful

With the display puts Sony on a 9.4-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels, which although with proper brightness values can wait up but drops in contrast under daylight conditions and also clearly reflects. The direct comparison of streamed HD videos with the we but only slightly outshone lights iPad 2 logged and the picture quality was slightly less detail – in rooms very good, only the built-in stereo speakers could act more powerfully.

Juddering in the flow of images there was no, as also for the other operation barely hangs or delays noticing were – a sign of the efficiency of the processor and the well adapted software.

And here, Sony once again setting trends: the Tablet S is certified as a PlayStation device and interesting for players. However only two preinstalled games were available at the time of the test, the PlayStation Store will quickly fill but as well as the video and music store.

Anyway, the Sony sees itself more on multimedia because, on bureaucracy: the included player software directly controls compatible media players on your network. So you can push such photos and videos with a simple swipe of the finger on the corresponding external screen – that’s why you omitted the initially mentioned HDMI output probably consequently.

We could not find a software that makes the tablet itself to the DLNA server, though; but here the Android market help with his inexhaustible reservoirs. The current Android 3.2 software honeycomb has Sony total discreetly, but skillfully adjusted. The battery life is average with less than five hours.

Conclusion: at eye level

If ever an Android tablet, then as an as the Tablet S from Sony: the Japanese have optimized form and function consistently in one direction, individually adapted to the own product ranges and equipped with clever detail solutions. Only the low battery life and the non-optimal display ruining his start to the Sony.
