sony tablet

If Apple is not ready to re-imagine the tablet yet, all credit to Sony for trying to do so with its wedge-shaped Tablet S, favourably reviewed last year, and now the clam-styled Tablet P, which was launched in the UK (£500) in December but has only been available in the US, with AT&T ($550, plan not required), since this month.

The P is petite enough to slip into a jacket pocket when folded and seems a more natural accessory than the smaller slates that can do so – it’s like taking a wallet or diary out when opening it. 

Tech news from around the web:

Sprint Nextel is set to begin selling the new version of the Apple iPhone in mid-October, according to The Wall Street Journal. As well as boosting the US number -three carrier’s product line-up, Apple will also benefit from another sales channel for its popular handset.
