Tablets are the new handheld game systems, beating Vita and 3DS

April 10, 2015

Which would you rather do, play Candy Crush on your iPad or Mario Kart 8 on your 3DS? If you said Candy Crush, you aren’t alone. Gaming apps on iOS and Android are increasing in popularity as sales for handheld gaming systems have been suffering a steady decline. In the 4th Quarter of 2014 handhelds may have seen a deathblow. This could mean that tablets are the new handheld game systems, at least in the minds of mobile device owners.

You would expect that more people would be interested in buying handheld gaming systems September through December. That is when holiday sales often boost numbers and help gaming companies beat sales records. When it comes to gaming [...]

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet first look!

March 2, 2015

Flagship season is upon us, but noticeable in its absence is the latest flagship smartphone from Sony, which has now been pushed back to accommodate Sony’s move away from their bi-annual release cycle. Nevertheless, Sony hasn’t come to MWC 2015 without its own bag of goodies, with the waterproof Xperia M4 Aqua, as well as the highly-anticipated latest addition to their high-end tablet lineup. At MWC 2015, we got to spend some time with the device, and here is our first look at the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet!

Ever since the launch of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, we were wondering what Sony would do with regards to a tablet in the 10-inch form factor, [...]

Sony’s new Xperia Z4 Tablet delivers raw power in a crazy slim body

March 2, 2015

It’s not really a surprise, following the leak from last week, but Sony just introduced the latest version of the sexy 10.1-inch Xperia Tablet at MWC 2015.

We were hoping for a new version of the Xperia Z flagship smartphone from Sony, but what we got instead might make up for that: the new Xperia Z4 Tablet is thinner, lighter, has a higher resolution screen, and packs more power.

In terms of design, the Xperia Z4 Tablet looks a lot like its smaller sibling, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, released last year at IFA. The same design language featuring rounded edges is used to great success on the 10.1 model, and amazingly Sony managed to make the Z4 Tablet even [...]

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet leaks out ahead of MWC 2015

February 25, 2015

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a full-sized tablet from Sony, but perhaps the company has plans to unveil a new one sometime soon. In a new leak from the official Xperia Lounge application, Sony outed their new Xperia Z4 Tablet, but only for a brief moment. We don’t know much about the tablet from the screenshots taken of the page, but we do know it will come with a 2K screen, and will feature “the latest ultra fast processor” and “industry leading battery performance”. The screenshot also reveals that the tablet will be launched on March 3rd, which suggests that it will be unveiled at MWC 2015.

When it comes to specifics, [...]

That tablet bundle doesn’t come cheap however at $650, although the price isn’t so bad if you reflect that it is only $50 more than the standalone Xperia Tablet Z.

Sony gets in the Windows 8 game with VAIO Tap 11 and takes on Microsoft’s Surface Pro

September 4, 2013

Like Microsoft’s flagship tablet, the VAIO Tab 11  is an 11-inch device with a kickstand, Intel Core processor and 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display that supports pen input. Another similarity: it works with a keyboard that latches onto the tablet via a magnetic connector

But Sony’s keyboard attaches on the front face, not on the bottom edge, and it’s a proper wireless keyboard with surprisingly decent travel — not at all like the flat Touch Cover that goes with the Surface. And even with the thicker keyboard attached, the Tap 11 is about as thick as the Surface Pro itself.

Sony’s sleek new battery packs aim to keep smartphones and tablets charged

September 3, 2013

Sony has one solution – new, slim battery pack accessories designed to power either your smartphone or tablet.

The CP-F5 and CP-F10L, 5,000mAh and 10,000mAh are sleek and stylish, and pretty run-of-the-mill as far as battery packs are concerned. They will charge your device in less than two hours, and take about 7 hours to replenish using AC power. The CP-F5 will have one port, while the CP-F10L will have two for charging multiple devices.

But currently they’re only available in India, at Sony stores and other major electronics retailers. The CP-F5 will run about $42, while the CP-F10L will set you back around $72.

Sony teases VAIO laptop-tablet combo it’s set to unveil at IFA 2013

August 21, 2013

The video shows a pair of hands folding and unfolding a piece of paper like you might a traditional laptop, and a hybrid "Viewer" orientation. This is when the laptop's keyboard is folded underneath and faces down on a table, so that the touchscreen 'tablet' display is up and facing outward, similar to Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11S.

TabTimes will have in-depth coverage of the IFA conference which starts September 6.

And the winner of the European tablet of the year award goes to …

August 16, 2013

Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z  was named Tablet of the Year by the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA), Europe’s largest editorial multimedia organization. 

The $499, 10-inch Android tablet has a number of unique features: it’s  water-resistant up to one meter (for 30 minutes), relatively lightweight at 494g, and almost up-to-date with the next-to-latest version of Android (4.2.2 Jelly Bean). That’s a set of features few Android tablets can beat, though it’s also worth nothing that while the Xperia Tablet Z offers capable performance, it’s powered by an aging Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU.

Sony’s innovative ‘lens cameras’ works with smartphones and tablets

August 12, 2013

The unique devices feature a sensor, processor, zoom lens, WiFi connectivity and an SD card slot, but no display or other typical controls (beyond a zoom toggle and perhaps a shutter release). The idea is that users will use their handset or tablet to control the lens, adjust framing and transmit images.

Sony hasn’t provided any advance details or acknowledgment the product is in the works, but the company does have a press conference set for September 4 at the IFA conference in Berlin, which could when it plans to announce the new lens cameras.
