AT&T has just announced that it will finally start selling the Sony Tablet P on March 4, which is this coming Sunday. ‘Finally’, because the first time we heard that the carrier would be offering this device was all the way back in July of 2011.
And here we are, just seven short months later, and there’s an official press release for that. The Sony Tablet P has two 5.5-inch touchscreens, and has a folding design that’s unlike any other tablet out there. The two screens can be used together as a big screen, or separately – for example a video could be playing on one of them, and you could be checking your email on the other.
The Sony Tablet P will be priced by AT&T at $399.99 with a new two-year data contract. The Tablet P comes with HSPA+ support and is PlayStation Certified.
The tablet has a dual-core 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 5 MP rear camera, a front-facing 0.3 MP camera, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, microSD support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and both screens have 1024×480 resolution. The Tablet P currently runs Android 3.2 Honeycomb.
An update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has been promised by Sony for this spring, so if you get one of these you’ll soon be able to enjoy the latest version of Google’s mobile OS.
