Sony Vaio Ultra-Slim Slider Tablet PC: Early Images

Whilst Sony are in the media at the moment for all the wrong reasons with the PSN being down due to a breach of their security, they have been busy in the tablet market. The recent announcement of the S1 and S2 that we reported on previously is something that Sony hardware fans have been crying out for.

Now we have heard through Engadget’s Richard Lai that there are two new devices also being readied by Sony. We can see the Sony Vaio ultra-slim slider laptop in some early images and it looks pretty impressive. It resembles the Asus Eee Pad slider in terms of design but knowing Sony they don’t like to scrimp on their specs or their price so expect this to be high end and high priced.

Early tipsters say that you can expect to pick one up for $799 in the fall but we would prefer to wait for some kind of Sony announcement on this skinny guy. We really like the concept that you can go between using it as a laptop and the newly popular tablet PCs. Due to its popularity, we are expecting this to run on Android Honeycomb 3.0 unless something newer comes out from Google but between now and then it’s not expected for the tablet orientated OS to be updated.

That’s pretty much what we know about the device so far but you can head over to this translated page to see a few other devices that were talked about at Sony’s recent event. You can expect to see a few more details on the S1 and S2 devices and also an ‘ultramobile’ laptop.

What do you think of the design of this Hybrid tablet/laptop from Sony? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
