Good: Feels premium with Aluminium unique design, great guest profile to hand it to the kids in safety, splashproof comes in more handy than I thought too, as does the remote control
Bad: Yet to get PlayStation Mobile games but it looks like that's coming soon, and no other Tablet has it anyway
Comment: I've been really impressed with this - the aluminium and glass and incredible quality of the screen make it feel far more premium than any Android tab I've seen before. The screen really is amazing, although it's not super-high resolution, the quality of colours and brightness are great. It's cool that you can happily throw it around in the kitchen cooking without worrying about water too, because of the splashproofing. While it still suffers a bit from the selection of android apps available on the market, Sony have put some of their own in to help - Socialife to merge facebook, twitter and news feeds, and the entertainment ones are all good. It seems to fly when flicking around the web and photos and HD games.
The little guest mode seems like a bit of a novely but actually is very practical for creating a profile for my kids, making sure they don't access my gmail account and buy stuff on the play store. If you don't have a universal remote then the tablet does a great job on that - setting it up to control my tv and home theatre system was easy, just wish I had InfraRed controlled lights and a hot tub so that I could be extra pimp!
All in all a really nice looking tablet that is slick and handy to use. I got the keyboard case with it too - that thing is probably the best accessory I've ever bought.
Good: We'll see
Bad: We'll see,
Comment: £329 for 16GB, £379 for 32GB version on Sony website:
