Summary: Nice design but poor screen quality and battery isn't that great. Very flimsy. I would recommend Surface 2 by Microsoft. Got this as a replacement for Sony Xperia and totally over the moon with it.
Summary: I love the Android OS on phones and small tablets (e.g. the Nexus 7) but it doesn't seem to be good on larger screened tablets, such as this one. Also the Play Store does not have a clearly defined tablet section (unlike with the iPad). For this size of tablet I think the Apple system is superior.
Pros: Light weight, waterproof design, looks, IR TV remote control
Cons: Too few good tablet apps, Sony bloatware, seems a bit flimsy
Summary: I have been a loyal iPad 2 user, but was looking for an upgrade in performance. Naturally the newest iPad (4th gen) was what I went looking for, that is until I saw the Sony Xperia on display. It had a beautiful widescreen HD display, great sound from the side speakers, and most importantly offered the performance boost I was looking for. Its fast and silky smooth! Sony isn't a big player in the tablet market so I was hesitant at first.
