  • Conclusion: Still, we're sure there are gamers and multimedia enthusiasts who will find the Tablet P an enticing alternative to typical Android-based tablets. In other words, this is a niche item—the kind of device with a unique construction and capabilities that will, for some users, outweigh its high price.
  • Pros: Loaded with entertainment features, High-quality display, Deep integration with other Sony products, Unique support for dual-screen apps, Swappable battery
  • Cons: No HDMI output, Poor audio playback and recording, Seam between screens distracts with certain apps, Pricey

Sony Tablet P Review

SlashGear
19 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Sony has redesigned most of the core apps to work with the dual-screens. They have a few that launched in the market with full dual-screen support and work great too, but in general the experience is sub-par at best.

Sony Tablet P

PC Magazine
15 March 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony Tablet P does not make good use of its interesting dual-screen design, offering up both a sub par gaming experience with no physical buttons and an awkward Android tablet experience.
  • Pros: Sharp and bright screens. Game-friendly design. Interesting dual-screen optimized apps.
  • Cons: Flimsy design. Miniscule internal storage. Awkward split between screens. Wide bezels. Limited optimized-app selection.

Review: Sony Tablet P

Wired
12 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Ever wish you could fold your tablet in half and stick it in your pocket? Well now you can! It’s all thanks to the innovators at Sony, who figured that what the Android tablet market is missing can be summed up in one word: foldability.
  • Cons: Graphically intense apps suck the battery hard; I got under 3.5 hours on a charge. Speaker is tinny and far too soft. No way to get an unbroken screen experience; full-screen apps always look weird. Some app compatibility problems.

Sony Tablet P review

theverge.com
6 March 2012
  • Excerpt: In a market riddled with similar slates, no one's going to accuse Sony of adopting a copycat tablet strategy. First the company released the Tablet S , a tablet seemingly inspired by a folded-back magazine, and now comes the Tablet P, which draws its design from some combination of a Nintendo 3DS...
  • Pros: Apps optimized for dual screens work pretty well, Nice looking, Displays look good
  • Cons: Most Android apps work poorly on two screens, Huge bezels, pointy corners make it awkward to use, No LTE, outdated internals

Sony Tablet P Review

LAPTOP Magazine
5 March 2012
  • Summary: Our biggest beefs with the Tablet P are that you can't use the displays for running two apps simultaneously, and some apps (especially the browser) feel cut off by the large bezel in between the screens. In addition, there are a lot of other apps that run on just the top display.

Sony Tablet P review: full marks for originality, less for execution

PC Authority
15 April 2012
  • Summary: The clamshell design makes the tablet neat and portable, but the two screens create too many issues for this to be a viable alternative to standard Android tablets.
