Sony Xperia tablet snaps spied on web
Fresh pics have surfaced showing Sony's upcoming Xperia-branded Android tablet refresh following the machine's unofficial outing last month.
The Xperia is said to contain an Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU, pack in a 6000mAh battery, and sport front- and rear-facing cameras of one and eight million pixels, respectively. The body is cast in magnesium-aluminium alloy, a posting on XDA Developers claims.
That's where the snaps - which confirm the 'flattened Tablet S' styling of the previous leak - come from.

Expect to pay $400-600 for an Xperia tablet with 16-64GB of storage when it ships in September, the post notes. ®
Looks like an iPad
It's rectangular, has rounded edges and has got a black bezel. I had to take a serious second look before I realised it wasn't an iPad. Damn it's confusing.
How exactly you would imagine a 'different' tablet could look like? Oval shape maybe?
Sony, proving once again that "slavish copying" of the iconic iPad is neither necessary (or even desirable) when creating an Android tablet.
I realise that this will be lost on the "Apple Haters" here at The Register, but it is in fact impossible to argue against this "proof by existence" fact.
