The Sony Tablet S will be available to purchase online at Sony's Web site , at Sony Centre stores and "selected Australian retailers" from tomorrow. It will cost $579 for the 16GB model and $689 for the 32GB version. Both models of the Tablet S are Wi-Fi only tablets — 3G models of the Sony Tablet S will not be sold in Australia until early 2012.

The Sony Tablet S has a curved design that attempts to resemble a folded magazine and its shaped like a wedge. The upper portion of the tablet is thicker than the lower portion, which is an attempt to make it easier to hold and easier to view when sitting on a desk. Sony says the physical attributes of the Tablet S make it stable and light and therefore comfortable to use for an extended period of time. It weighs 598g.

The Sony Tablet S has front and rear-facing cameras, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Bluetooth and GPS connectivity, and is PlayStation certified, meaning it will be compatible with PlayStation games available through the Android Market. Sony will pre-load Australian models of the Tablet S with Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes games.

The Sony Tablet S is powered by a 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and 1GB of RAM and also comes with an SD card slot and a USB port.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
