The Sony Tablet “S” is now in the shops, could this Android Tablet be a rival for the iPad?  I like the design of this product and it has unusual hardware under the hood as well as an unusual look.

At least Sony have tried to be a bit different with the design and it will probably be one of those love it or hate it shapes.

The concept is so simple, it may make you wonder why nobody has thought about it earlier.
