A Sony fail for sure, but here is a Cnet Video and review.

It is officially up-gradable to Ice Cream Sandwich.

Somehow I feel like I need this since all of the other tablets I've purchased only have a SINGLE touchscreen...

Does this have a SIM card slot? I was pretty interested until I saw the AT&T logo, which is making me reconsider.

I would not buy anything from SONY. Their products have had tons of defect issues in the past years.

What I find funny...i'm an AT&T customer...I've read about this "tablet" on a few sites...yet I never knew there was an AT&T branded version until now. They never talked about it, I saw no "blip" about it on the same sites that showed the regular version...and i've never once...once...seen one in an AT&T corp store let alone on AT&T's very own website when i'm checking my account.

But i'm very tempted to buy one because I want a smaller tablet and my Acer A500 seems to have a battery drain issue now.

Just the idea behind this seems dumb. Doesn't seem like it would be good for anything. Movies? No. Reading? No. Web browsing? No. The screen being cut in half would be annoying. Or you have 2 little screens. Just dumb. I love my Sony Tablet S though. I'd pass on this.

In for 1 but does it take a standard size SIM or micro SIM?

If it is like the s tablet from Sony it will crash a lot and have a horrible wifi range.

From a design standpoint this is a lot more interesting than a traditional flat "chocolate bar" tablet. But like the NDS your vision is divided between two screens. Last time I checked, most apps are designed for one. I love the idea of using one half as a custom keyboard and one half as a word processor.

Don't think I've ever seen this tablet before, but I remember a couple years ago Sony made a netbook with this same basic design and screen aspect ratio (just one screen, of course). It sold like hotcakes... cold, stale, nasty hotcakes...

The tablet still works as 'one screen' but the dead space in the middle makes it difficult to drag from the bottom to the top seamlessly which is the big design flaw. If they could have made those screens extremely close to each other so if you opened it flat it would almost be one screen it, perhaps, would have been more functional despite few apps being able to utilize both screens.

Note the original retail price. This came out in March. It's not selling well because it doesn't do anything well that a smartphone or 7" tablet does better.

According to this review it features a full sized SIM slot and a MicroSD slot.

5.5" screen plus 5.5" screen does NOT equal an 11" screen. From what I can tell this will be closer to the size of a 7" tablet.

I have to get one just because it is UNIQUE!!

could this be used as a phone with an ATT sim card?

I'd never put anything past the homebrew scene, but no, the SIM card is for internet services.

If this could run Jellybean (via XDA guys) I think it's a good deal.

I saw a review for this and this is apparently very good if all you're going to do is some light word processing/surfing/etc. Maybe not so good for media consumption.

It's also a rather good bargain at nearly 50% off the MSRP.

Maybe it's meant to be competition for the iPad Mini...hmmm.

This reminds me of that dual screen Android phone that was way under powered, the Sprint Kyocera Echo.
http://m.engadget.com/2011/02/07/sprints-kyocera-echo-dual-screen-android-phone-announced-we-go/

It would be a neat thing if Android natively supported dual screens like this.

The idea is cool but not exactly there :'( I do like the PSP part of this

Shut up and take my money...again

Is this like a larger smart fone? Are some of the fones like smaller tablets? I wanted a tablet, assessed by needs and decided I could get what I want upgrading to a smarter fone than I have. I'm so confused....

Not to mention lack of support. Just ask any Sony Dash owner. They supposedly fixed the server issues but many still have useless dash's.

Pros: The pills were there.
Cons: So was the tank.

The U.S version of the Tablet P never received the update to ICS.

Looks like it will stay stuck on Honeycomb 3.2.1. Plus there has not been much development for the device.

But having said all that, I still might pick up one - if only for the unusual design.

You and me both. I've purchased one too many half-assed android tablets though (other than the cheap HP Touchpad).

Would be cool to see how emulator gaming works on this unit. Might be a sweet little portable system just for that reason. Will have to check youtube to see if anyone has done anything.
