    The Wedge Shaped Design Is A Winner, November 24, 2011

    I have now used this tablet for almost 3 months. I am not a journalist or evaluator of electronic devices (borrowed for short period). I am just a normal user who uses it daily for myself. I do not own any other tablet but have a colleague who uses an iPad, with which I can compare.


    After one month of use, I found myself loving it. After two moths, I was loving it even more. And after almost 3 months, I cannot live without. I recommend it highly to everyone.


    I am an Apple fan. I have been a Mac user for last 20 years. I bought at least 4 iPods in the past. And I currently use iPhone. So naturally I liked iPad when my colleague showed me one.

    Then why I did not buy Apple’s tablet (iPad)? That’s because I am an iPhone user! More and more I learned about iPad, it became clear to me that it is a “big iPhone without phone”. I already have most of the features of iPad in my iPhone.

    In other words, If I buy an iPad, I gain little while paying twice for the same things. But If I buy an android tablet, my selection of features and apps gets doubled, as I gain an access to Android Market in addition to Apple’s App store.

    This was one of decisive reasons why I chose Sony Tablet over Apple’s iPad.


    I use Sony Tablet both at home and at work, daily.

    At work, I use it for emailing, web browsing, scheduling, and note taking.
    At home, in addition to what I do at work, I use it as e-reader (Kindle), video/movie watching. I use it as a universal controller for everything in living room (TV, CABLE, BD/DVD Player, AV Receiver). I also sometimes listen to music (Music Unlimited) in bed.

    On weekends, I take it with me when going out. I use it to take pictures and videos. I use it as e-reader (Kindle) at cafeteria while listening to music (Music Unlimited). My wife uses it to watch movies in the car when we go out for a long drive.

    I charge it during night and I do not carry power cable at all during a day because I have plenty of juice left at end of the day.


    A. Superb Design – Beautifully curved design with a wedge shaped body is a winner.

    I found that its physical design is not just gorgeous but significantly useful.

    (1) When holding it on your hand, it feels lighter than flat type because the center of gravity is closer to your holding hand.
    (This is true even when holding it horizontally with both hands if you hold the upper half of the device. And it feels secure because the wedge shape on upper side works as a slip-stopper.)

    (2) It is much safer and easier to carry it around room to room without fear of dropping it because the wedge shaped side works as a slip-stopper between your fingers that hold it.

    (3) The screen is easier to view with less glare, and its virtual keyboard is easier to type when placed on the desk because the wedge gives a comfortable elevation on upper side. You do not need a special carrier case to do that like all other flat shaped tablets.

    (4) This is the only tablet that you can gently put on the desk and comfortably pick it up without fear of dropping it because the wedge shape with hollowed sides gives you a convenient handle to hold it securely.

    Sony is the first company that realized that thiner is not necessarily better. Thiner and flatter the device, the more difficult to gently put it on a hard surface of desk because your fingers are not on the sides but underneath, and you have to pull your fingers from beneath at some point. And thiner and flatter the device, the more difficult it is to pick up. (Just imagine about picking up an unbending flat thin plastic plate from a desk!)

    (5) It is simply gorgeous to look at both when held in hand and placed on the desktop (you don’t need ugly case to elevate the upper side).

    B. Light Weight – Use of special plastics make this tablet light and strong.

    (1) This tablet is lightest among all tablets in its size-class. It is essential for mobile device to be light. Lighter the better; therefore, it is the best in its class in this regard.

    (2) Sony achieves this lightness by using plastics. However, not all plastics are made equal. Sony fortified its device by using very sturdy special plastics (as opposed to cheep ones used in Samsung’s). In other words, it is high quality plastic that is strong, very strong.

    C. Large Storage Capacity (External SD card and USB drive)

    (1) I bought one with 32GB. I also bought a 32GB external SD card. Together, my Sony Tablet has 64GB at all times. That’s plenty for many videos and movies and other data. (Compare with Kindle Fire which has only 8GB)

    (2) In addition, with a USB connector ($17), I can also connect to my 500GB USB pocket drive if I…

    Some unique features and (eventual) content distinguish yet another Honeycomb tablet, October 5, 2011

    Update: As of October 19, all advertised media features have launched. I have commented on these additions at the end of my original review.

    Running on the Honeycomb platform, the Sony Tablet S looks and behaves identically to it’s Android 3.2 competition. What sets it apart, then? What you can DO with it, of course. The Sony S has a few features absent to any other major tablet on the market of which I am aware. I’ll cover those and skip over Android’s platform strengths (Flash browsing, etc)

    First, the IR remote. When you consider that people will pay 200 to 300 dollars just for an all-in-one LCD universal remote, the fact that this tablet can literally manipulate anything possessing an infrared sensor becomes a make-sense design decision. Anything, from your Venetian blinds, your Mac Book Pro, and of course every piece of home theater equipment you own. If it’s not listed in the tablet’s considerable IR code library, simply point the remote at the tablet and let it analyze and clone the signal. Ease of use was obviously a priority as this is literally a matter of three button presses from beginning to end.

    Next is the DLNA functionality. Any media on the tablet – movies, music or photo files – can be “thrown” to a TV on the same wifi network. Ease of use was again at the forefront of the engineers’ minds. Open your movie and tap the throw button. The tablet scans for compatible displays on the same network and in moments presents you with a list. Drag the movie onto the device you want to throw to with a finger. Done! You’re now watching your movie on your TV and can even go right back to doing other things on your tablet.

    That will require the TV be connected to your network in some way, of course, but that doesn’t mean your TV needs to be the latest high-end wifi integrated model. A wifi connected Blu-Ray player of any brand will do the trick (Sony’s own excellent BDP-S580 can be had for as little as 130 dollars and is DLNA certified and wifi integrated), as will game consoles to a certain degree. There are a lot of options here.

    DLNA has been around for years but setting it up can be a hassle, even for the experienced user. This tablet’s simple, brute-force approach takes all the tweaking and setting up out of the picture and MAKES it work, no headaches, no delay. When you’re done, tap “Disconnect” and the tablet returns your TV to it’s previous state, right down to being on the same channel.

    This functionality isn’t limited to sending media out, you can also pull it in. If you’re in your living room on your tablet and want to listen to some music housed on the bedroom PC? Simply press the “DLNA” icon, select the computer, and go to town. All the movies, music and photos in your Windows Media Player library are at your fingertips at all times. You can even then pass it along to your TV (and therefore your sound system) using the throw feature. No extra software is needed for this if you are using Windows Vista or 7, it’s all built right into Windows Media Player, and the tablet will again handle it all for you.

    The Tablet S also sports the powerful NVIDIA Tegra dual core processor, which (along with some tweaks) prompted Sony to dub it “Playstation Certified”. I’m curious to see if this will shake up the mobile gaming scene at all since Tablet S owners will no longer have to content themselves with the bland array of tower defense games or the latest repackaging of Angry Birds all over the Android market. Instead, we will soon have access to the Playstation Network and (supposedly) a substantial portion of PSP and PlayStation titles.

    I do feel Sony stumbled with their release, since their primary content apps – Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited (positioned to compete with Netflix or Amazon, I imagine) and the afformentioned PSN access are all “coming soon”. In the mean time, you can at least access a swath of free media via the Crackle app. A variety of TV shows and movies are at your disposal here, though it’s a fairly oddball mix of some new, some old and some bizarre. You can also load up the tablet with your own media, even more so thanks to the SD card slot. While the stock Android music and video players can’t access the card’s storage, many third party market place players will, easily allowing you to turn a 32gb tablet into a 64gb tablet. It’s unfortunate that the only way to get this content to the big screen is via DLNA. Not including a mini-HDMI or the like – staples of the now-300-dollar Blackberry Playbook and the iPad – is an absolute miss and a big strike against a tablet positioning itself as an entertainment platform.

    Finally, not much has really been said here about the tablet’s distinct physical design. While it has the added benefit of making it stand out from what has remained a parade of absolutely identical looking devices, shifting the weight to the edge really does make it a…

    Sony has still got it, September 17, 2011

    This review is from: Sony SGPT111US/S Wi-Fi Tablet (16GB) (Personal Computers)

    First, a disclaimer: this is not a full review. It is based on less than one hour hands-on experience. I am buying one.

    IN SHORT, I am very positively impressed by Sony S1 and think it is one of the best, if not the best, Android tablets made so far. My other favorite Android tablet is Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I would not regret to own either of them, but I now prefer Sony S1 for its unique handholding ergonomics (see detailed discussions below).

    Running a comparison among the top tablets including iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and this one (Sony S1) makes me feel we consumers are really spoiled. These products are all so good for what they are. It is like comparing different flavors of ice cream, and one might end up wanting to eat all of them. But still, the Sony S1 manages to somehow stand out with a few quite significant unique features.

    On the other hand, even the best iPads and Android tablets cannot replace my Windows-based laptop computer. Like many, I do work on my computer. In fact I can’t work without my computer. As much as I like the convenience of the current tablets, none of them comes even close to giving me the whole spectrum of business software applications and the ecosystem. This is not a complaint against a computing device that costs less than $500. It is just a statement of reality.

    To name a few of PC software and system tools that lack a reasonable substitute on either iOS or Android: (1) sophisticated file system management (local, LAN and cloud), (2) the Office system (beyond Word, including PowerPoint, Excel), (3) NaturallySpeaking Pro (business-grade full-text speech recognition), (4) image editing and other multimedia creation and editing programs (such as Photoshop), (5) OneNote, (6) Microsoft’s unmatched handwriting recognition, (7) Visio (vector drawing software), and (8) CRM, QuickBooks, business databases and other professional software. To me, a computer for work has to have almost all of these capabilities. I’m waiting for the Windows 8 tablet to come out to replace my laptop for this purpose (more about this at the end of this review).

    But this review is not a fight between Windows and iOS/Android (which are frankly entirely different leagues serving different purposes). It’s just some thoughts of a happy consumer with regard to a good product.

    In the following, I will list and comment on some major aspects of Sony S1, starting with the ones that distinguish Sony S1 from the crowd the most, and ones that I personally think are more important.


    Of the numerous tablets I have handled, Sony S1 feels the best in hands, noticeably better than both iPad 2 and Samsung galaxy 10.1, or any other tablets for that matter. This is largely because of its asymmetrical shape. I would not be surprised that a large number of people will feel the same way.

    But I think there is something more than just a feel. In my particular case, there’s a very significant practical benefit, in fact a health-related benefit. Due to longtime use of Windows-based convertible tablet computers (yes they do exist, and not to be confused with the tablets we talk about here), the skin of my fingers got a slowly-burnt condition which is very sensitive to any heat (I suspect it is radiation related, but I don’t know for sure). Sony S1 gives me a cool handle to hold it, and I immediately know it is healthier, not just more comfortable. I would buy Sony S1 for this reason alone. I can’t speak for others however.

    In addition, the way Sony designed this tablet beems with quality and even pride. Once you have seen and held a Sony S1, a rare gleam of hope arises: finally a tablet that is not just trying to emulate the iPads. I don’t hate iPads. I just want to see some freedom to break away from the “Apple Way” and good choices other than Apple products. So a tablet like Sony S1 gives me a bit of extra satisfaction other than its just being a good product. Call me biased. But I’m entitled to my opinion.


    Although the Sony S1 tablet is based on Android Honeycomb, Sony introduced a few very unique features. The first interesting one is that the tablet works as a universal remote control, not only to Sony TVs but also electronics of other brands. I haven’t tried this yet, but in theory, once they have that infrared sensor built in, they could make it work as a truly powerful universal control with good software implementation.

    Another feature is that the Sony S1 has DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) for streaming contents directly to a DLNA capable TV. Considering that newer TVs and many other home electronics are increasingly becoming “DLNA certified” as a matter of standard now, this is a good thing.

    In addition, Sony is pitching its tablet as a PlayStation-certified tablet. I really don’t know…
