Horrible, stay away

Summary: i hated android, product was nice, android operating system as a whole is garbage. It is choppy, not easy easy and fluid as windows phone, windows os, mac, or IOS. its a lame excuse for an operating system, anyone would be much happier with an iPad, or any of the windows tablets coming out.
Summary: can't review now. Too disappointing. Later maybe when time allows. No return policy-bummer. Tried to Use for first 4 hours and gave up. bought manual on line-almost useless, too small print on "large print" edition. Adult grandchildren found it too frustrating to help. Their advice: Get a Mac.
Summary: I like this, I like this alot! It is a good size and easy to hold in your hand from both weight and it's unique design. It is one heck of a fingerprint magnet but I got a cheap matte screen protector and that issue is all but completely gone. It takes a bit too long to "boot up" IMO and it is a tad bit annoying but I can deal with that.
Summary: Sony have abandoned this product. It is Full of bugs and getting worse. I cannot recommend anything from Sony if this is how they treat their customers. My recommendation is Do Not Buy. The keyboard is the worse part, followed by their built in browser and the remote control is grim, doesn't remote control properly. It was all such a good idea, very badly implemented and now not supported by Sony, no future os updates are planned.
Summary: We are avid fans of Sony products and have so far, purchased all of our laptops/phones from this brand and have been very satisfied. It is therefore with deep disappointment(and outrage) that we are slowly discovering how bad this specific product really is. The tablet has real problems connecting to our home wifi hub and will often disconnect with no reason . When it finally does, it is with a very weak signal even when the tablet is close to the router .
Summary: I am a big Sony fan so it pains me to give this item 1 star. This is a lovely item in all respects except for one fundamental flaw that basically renders it useless and I am frankly shocked that Sony have allowed this item to be distributed with such a major shortcoming. The Wi-Fi issue that you can read about in reviews here on Amazon, or on forums across the web in general, is real. The first unit I had from Amazon developed the problem in 4 days.
Summary: This WIFI tablet cannot maintain a connection to a powerful wifi signal 10 feet away from the base station. My Nokia e71 which is several years old can do so. So can my gen 1 and gen 4 apple ipod touch, so can my Dell Streak. So can all my computers. So can a Sony Xperia x10 mini. How on earth can a company as vast as Sony allow this thing to get out of the lab? It seems that maybe Apple have employed all the people with a normal IQ?
Summary: I have not bought a Sony product for a while now and I am reminded why. Problems; - Hardware feels very cheap - Software feels unresponsive - Bad video playback. On my machine, video playback (particularly BBC iPlayer) was ruined by a large (3rd of screen) random flash of black triangle. I have read reviews where this has been mentioned. - It appears that Sony have excluded the standard Android movies section from the marketplace.
