Sony prepping a tablet with Xperia NXT design?

by XB on 22nd August 2012

in Rumours, Sony Tablet

A Swedish publication recently posted a story about Sony Mobile moving its headquarters from Lund in Sweden to Tokyo, Japan. We’ve already discussed this previously, but what piqued our interest was the picture attached to the story.

It appears to show what looks like a Sony Ericsson tablet carrying the Xperia NXT design as seen in the Xperia S, Xperia P and Xperia U. The transparent bar can clearly be seen running across the bottom of the slate. However, this is most likely a prototype tablet and there’s no evidence to suggest it will ever see the light of day. Would you like to see a tablet with such a design, or do you think it doesn’t suit such a large screen? Let us know in the comments below.


Thanks Ylli!

    The Tablet looks awesome. Yea. Awesome indeed. But no point of keeping the transparent bar, as it will indeed be waste of space. Or may be Sony can make the insides transparent, and make it glow as well? Awesome. :)

  • Tomasroko xperia nexus is about to strike

  • Mark phillips

    Nice design though and if the couple with specs of something like the galaxy Note 10.1 would sell like hot cakes! :D

  • rafi

    Should consider as phablet.. Oh yeah…

  • Rubenos

    LG, Sony to join Samsung and HTC. But no Google owned Motorola? Will Google make something new for Moto? Something other than Nexus?

  • Jerry Berglund

    Well the news today also tells that maybe half of the workforce have to go before the move. So maybe close to 1 500 people will loose there jobs. Because its not only the Hq that moves to Japan, the development as well might follow. By the way, was wrong with this comment system? Google, and facebook doesnt work anymore?

    I would like to see such tablet, but having used the tablet S for almost a year, Sony would somehow make the transparent bar keep flashing in the middle of the night and no way to turn it off!

    Following Sony’s nomenculture, next year flagship phone is gonna be named something like ‘Xperia L’ or Xperia Lalua :) I came to this conclusion after noticing their previous year phone following i.e. Xperia arc -> Xperia arc S -> Xperia S and now Xperia SL….this clearly tells next year sony phone is gonna be named from ‘L’. Who is up for Lalua??? :-P

    Hello, that concept on the picture looks stylish but xperia tablet must be durable, so it can not be with that control bar, because it is so easy to damage.
    When users of XPERIA S(for example) will get Android 4.1 they must be shocked from new UI design.

  • BenhaDN

    The pictures on your link are so fake …

  • uidesigner_sony

    Concept, and it looks much better on smartphone

  • jxPerience

    If Sony is cooking up for Xperia Nexus so they will follow the nexus standard specs?

    a super amoled screen?

  • i’m GAMER

    if it have gamepad , like xperia paly , we will love that


  • qeatser

    It seems to me, or is it true? Under his right hand is fourth device with NXT design and transparent bar.

  • Nameless

    This would really be awkward in portrait mode tho.. So no, it doesn’t suit it.

  • asaaTY

    Several months ago, leaked rumors that the end of the year Google has released several models of smartphones Nexus in partnership not only with Samsung, but with other manufacturers. Finally came the first hints of such devices. In the depths of the documentation the Japanese operator NTT Docomo found mention smartphone LG Optimus Nexus and Sony Xperia Nexus.

    As reported Androidnoodles, it may be only two of the five models mentioned earlier. In addition, the documents NTT Docomo found a record of an improved version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus . On it there is some information, as opposed to devices from LG and Sony.

    Compared with the original Korean device has received several innovation. Frequency 2-core increased from 1.2 to 1.5 GHz, and the main camera is now 8-megapixel instead of 5-megapixel. The display remains the same – Super AMOLED Diagonal 4.65 “.

    in other words, this Device spec will be already Deja-vu..nothing new besides it’s a Sony/Google phone :p

  • wowoweewa

    Aesthetically pleasing but less functional due to more bezel,

  • Ashadian Mamood

    Anyone know when the ics upgrade for the Sony Xperia Acro HD on Docomo will be released??? Or where I can download it from???

  • ohredhk
