Sony P-Series Tablet available from £185

The Sony P-Series tablet has two 5.5in displays each capable of showing 1,024x400 pixels. Why did Sony decide to come up with such a radically different form factor?

Possibly because it wanted to emulate the design of the popular Nintendo DS. But different audiences and objectives mean that this product was a relative failure.

Now eBay retailer 3Monkeys is selling the P-Series tablet, which is no longer on sale in retail, for £185. The price includes the device with a full set of accessories including a high performance charger, a detachable back and front panel, a luxury leather case, an LCD Screen Protector and a soft carrying pouch.

As for the tablet itself, it runs on Android 3.1 Honeycomb and is powered by a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz. There’s 1GB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a front facing one, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Sony now has only one tablet in its portfolio, the Xperia S tablet, a more traditional tablet. Note that you also get 185 Nectar points with it.
