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.
