Sony Unveils the Stylish and Intuitive Xperia Tablet S
Features Splash Proof Design and Built-in Universal Remote
Dubai-UAE: 20 December, 2012 – Sony, the leading consumer electronics and entertainment brand, has unveiled the Xperia Tablet S. Thinner and lighter than the original Sony Tablet S, Xperia Tablet S is crafted with premium materials, which gracefully lend good looks and enable comfortable handling around the home or on the move.
The Xperia brand delivers mobility in addition to design, cross-device connectivity and network services to enhance user experience. Through introducing a Tablet device under the Xperia series, Sony allows consumers to seamlessly enjoy the immediate convenience of an Xperia smartphone and immersive entertainment of an Xperia Tablet.
The splash-proof aluminium casing of the Xperia Tablet S is designed for real-life use around the home and outdoors, doing away with the worry of casual water spillages. Running a speedy NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and Android 4.0.3 operating system, the device comes with the power needed to enjoy the latest media, apps and games.
The Xperia Tablet S incorporates several of Sony’s signal processing technologies such as ClearAudio+ mode, which delivers distinctive audio quality that is a trademark of the brand. With one simple operation, users can experience sound with ultimate clarity across a wide spectrum of tones from deep lows to crisp highs.
Owners can let the Xperia Tablet command their entire entertainment set-up from the comfort of a favourite couch. The infra-red universal remote control is enhanced with a new Macro function that stores a time-saving sequence of commands for instant recall. The Xperia Tablet S can be programmed to switch on the TV, cable box and home entertainment system, select inputs, adjust volume and more. Commands are executed at a single touch, and up to six macros can be named and stored.
The new Xperia Tablet S is made for sharing around the home. ‘Guest mode’ enables owners to create individual profiles for family members and visitors. Wallpapers, icons and apps access make the experience truly personal for everyone in the family.
The ‘WALKMAN’ application automatically detects and compiles song lists, sourced from the user’s social media feeds. The ‘Album’ application helps users view, sort and share pictures and videos captured with their Xperia Tablet across an intuitive user interface.
The new Sony Xperia Tablet S will be available from 21 December, 2012 at major electronic retailer showrooms across the UAE.
