Sony Xperia Tablet S down to £229

Grab the Sony Xperia Tablet S, the SGPT121GB, for as little as £229 after a £100 discount from Sony (via MyVoucherCodes until 1 April 2013). That is a cracking price for a tablet that has only been out for six months (it was launched at IFA back in Germany last year).

The tablet replaced the ill-fated Tablet S and was hit quite early by a manufacturing snag that affected its water resistance (the tablet is supposed to be water-resistant). Already Sony has pushed out its replacement, the Xperia Tablet Z (which is essentially a bigger version of the Xperia Z smartphone without voice capabilities).

As far as specs are concerned, the Xperia Tablet S comes with a super-slim aluminium case with a profile that’s shaped as a wedge, it can be used as a remote control to change TV channels and is powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 clocked at 1.3GHz.

Other features include a 9.4in 1,280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a SD card slot (the only one on the market to feature one), Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, Wi-Fi, a 1-megapixel front facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear one and a battery that can last up to 12 hours.
