When Sony introduced the Tablet S last year, it went above and beyond the typical Android tablet experience by delivering an ergonomic wedge design and an integrated IR universal remote control. It was pricey, sure, but it was unique.
So what happens when you take the Tablet S, slim it down a bit, add a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, get rid of its proprietary charging connection and fold it in to Sony's Xperia brand (previously reserved only for smartphones)?
The answer is the Xperia Tablet S. Set for a 7 September release in the US, Sony's latest tablet still isn't cheap, but it brings a load of TV-ready features and a revamped Android 4.0 skin. A few weeks ago, we got some hands-on time with the tablet (though photography and video were, unfortunately, nixed by Sony reps at the time).
