Today the new Xperia™ Tablet starts hitting doorsteps and store shelves. And how do we mark this momentous occasion? Well… Sony engineer Takuya Inaba ripped apart the gear and explained what’s inside. Okay, more like gently opened. Either way, if you love geeking out on parts, then this is the article for you.
First before we see the inside guts, here’s a quick look at the specs….
NVIDIA(R) Tegra(R) 3 mobile processor/1.4 GHz quad-core processor: Maximum 1.4 GHz (1 core operation), Maximum 1.3 GHz (MultiCore operation)
1280 x 800 pixels, TFT Color LCD
1 GB RAM
16/32/64 GB internal storage and expandable up to 32 GB via SD card (sold separately)
8 MP rear camera and 1 MP front camera
The bottom edge of the tablet features the Multi Port connector which connects to the AC adapter (supplied) or to a PC but also supports HDMI® and USB 2.0 host connection with optional adapter cables. The bottom edge features two speakers. Compared with the previous tablet (Sony Tablet™ S), the speakers have been repositioned from the side to the bottom of the tablet in order prevent the hands from covering them up.
