Like many new devices in the market, the Sony’s Xperia Tablet S got a teardown treatment and curiously it was Sony’s own engineer, who is behind the screwdriver. The Xperia Tablet S is an upgrade to the original Tablet S, which was plagued by dim display and high price tag. The Xperia Tablet S is beefed up with Ice Cream Sandwich and 1.4GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, while the Android 4.1 upgrade is on the way.
While the battery occupies a significant part of real estate inside the tablet, it is ridiculously slim, allowing the tablet to be thinner than its predecessor. To stop users’ hands from covering the speakers, both are moved to the bottom. The Xperia Tablet S has an innovative wrap-around design with carbon fiber material used as the cooling system, while a special type of ribbon is used to monitor battery temperature.
