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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
