Update: Clearer photos of the upcoming Sony Xperia Tablet have since emerged on the Internet. As expected, the device will feature the unique "wedge" design of the Sony Tablet S, albeit in a thinner body.
If you think the Tablet S and Tablet P are the last tablet devices from the Japanese company, you are dead wrong as leaked internal slides obtained by German news site Mobiflip reveal Sony's plans to launch the next generation tablet under the Xperia branding.
Known as the "Xperia Sony Tablet", the device appears to sport the unique form factor of the Sony Tablet S in a slimmer and lighter package. It will be encased in a splash-proof aluminum shell that is 42% thinner than the Tablet S.
The Xperia Sony Tablet will run on NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, Android 4.0 "or later", and comes in three storage capacities: 16GB (US$449.99), 32GB (US$549.99) and 64GB (US$649.99). It also will have 3G connectivity and a 6,600mAh battery which can provide up to 10 hours of Wi-Fi browsing.
The Sony tablet will come with a range of accessories such as a keyboard cover (US$99.99), a keyboardless carrying cover (US$59.99), premium cover (US$79.99), a cradle (US$39.99), docking stand (US$99.99), simple stand (US$24.99) and dock speaker (US$119.99). Prices quoted are tentative.
