Sony Xperia tablet gets leaked

Images and specs of Sony's upcoming Xperia tablet appear

Sony's next generation Xperia tablet has been leaked online with images and specifications.

The Xperia tablet will succeed the Tablet S and the news comes a few weeks after PC Advisor exclusively revealed that Sony would launch a new tablet in time for Christmas. The leaked slides, courtesy of Mobiflip show a slimmed down and improved version of the Tablet S.

Sony's tablet will share the Xperia name with its smartphone line-up and it will still have the folded magazine type design of the Tablet S. However, it will be both thinner and lighter by 42 percent - 8.8mm at its thinnest. See also: Group test: What's the best tablet PC?

The aluminium case will be splash proof. The screen remains at 9.4in with a 1280 x 800 resolution and storage capacities of 16, 32 and 64GB. Its processor will be an nVidia Tegra 3 quad-core chip, an upgrade from the Tablet S' dual-core Tegra 2.

Other details revealed in the leak include Bluetooth 3.0, an SD card slot, stereo speakers, an 8Mp rear camera, a 1Mp front camera front page and a larger battery capacity. There will also be Wi-Fi and the option for 3G mobile connectivity.

Out of the box, the Xperia tablet will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Accessories including a case with a keyboard and a docking station were also revealed in the leaked slides.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
