Sony prepping Tegra 3 ICS tablet successor to Tablet S?

in Rumours, Sony Tablet


Sony has always said that it plans to release a successor to the Tablet S. The Tablet S has a 9.4-inch (1280 x 800) display and runs the Nvidia Tegra 2 chipset and Android 3.2.1 Honeycomb OS. Judging by a leaked benchmark on NenaMark, it looks like the successor to the Tablet S is well on its way.

The Sony ‘V150’ device is powered by a 1.4Ghz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core chipset, has a 1280 x 752 screen resolution (accounting for on-screen buttons) and runs on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich. It scored a very respectable 59.70 average in the benchmark test, higher than the Tablet S (42.88) but in line with other Tegra 3 tablets such as the ASUS Transformer Prime (59.45).

Before anyone asks, there’s nothing to suggest that this benchmark is for anything other than a tablet device. Yes, display size isn’t given but the ‘V150’ model number hasn’t been associated with an Xperia device before. Also the fact that Sony used the Tegra 2 chipset in the Tablet S suggests that the Tegra 3 chipset in its successor is a natural move.

     Well, that might backfire to us, the Xperia owners -lol. Because Sony makes all kinds of stuff and our xperia news might get buried by news on PS,Vaio,Bravia, and other product lines.

    720p for a tablet? not acceptable nowadays

  • Xperia S rulez

    cool but I expected more, if I would have to choose tablet, I would choose Transformer Prime or Ipad, but rather transformer, i hate IOS

  • jm

    i think it is Vaio Tablet or Vaio Slate because of letter V in model name :)

    agree, this blog should only focus on xperia brand. Because only xperia does not receive any marketing and advertisement from Sony.

     What if it is a Sony Xperia Tablet? not a Sony Vaio  or Sony Tablet.

  • Asad Mulla

     Yep, sony branded the original Tablet S under the VAIO family

  • Asad Mulla

     I agree. If the xperia S has that res Tablet should have more.

  • Asad Mulla

     Or you could say only Sony Android devices.

    Seems ilke I just bought the tablet S and there is a new one already. (bought it at the launch date)
    Then again could say the same about the ARc and the X10. Tech moves fast and makes holes in your pockets

    It seems that Apple will always be a step ahead from the others, the retina display is gorgeous and all the others still use the 1280X800 old motive.. 

  • Sam

    Samsung are more ahead than apple.

    Xperia Blog, in the title there is a prepping.

    There is an “a” missing between the two “P”s.

    On topic: Seems that may be good device, but Transformer Prime still wins for the screen and the keyboard.

  • Felipe Pimenta

    Samsung IS more ahead than apple.

    The iPad 3 screen is gorgeous, but there is any movie for devices like this with this res?

    I prefer to name it as Sony Xperia Tablet because it’s always nice to see having Xperia Smartphone and Xperia Tablet.
