Japanese manufacturer Sony has announced the launch of Tablet S (WiFi, 3G) and Tablet P (3G) models in India today. While Tablet S WiFi is already available in the market for some time, Sony Tablet S 3G and Tablet P will be available from mid-January 2012.
Sony India stressed that the unique form-factor and content offerings set apart its tablets from other Honeycomb devices in the Indian market. Company will be aggressively promoting these tablets in the next quarter and plans to spend around 10 crores on the marketing.
Both the Sony tablets come with Android 3.2.1, NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor on-board and feature several India specific apps like BigFlix, Bollywood Hungama, Videochaska, Meragaana and Star Player. Company is trying to fill the gap created by the absence of its flagship Audio and Video Unlimited services in the Indian market with these applications. These tablets are also the first series of PlayStation Certified tablets on which original PlayStation games can be played, and company is providing Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes preinstalled on both the devices.
Sony Tablet exemplifies our strategy of combining hardware, software and network services. It offers customer a device which meets their demand for seamless, on the go access to the internet, digital entertainment content, and social networking.
