A refurbished model of the Sony Tablet S is now available at a price that is easier on the pocket at LogicBuy. Refurbished models are those that have been returned to the manufacturer because of some defect or other concerns, and which the manufacturer later fixed to bring it at par to the rest of its lineup. The Sony Tablet S slate that comes with a 16 GB storage capacity now carries the price tag of $269.23. This is $130 less its original price.
For these prices, users get the uniquely-designed tablet that tends to stand out from the sea of similar-looking slates. Its size, first of all, is rare since not many manufacturers produce a 9.4 inch tablet. For the most part, what are available today are 10-inch and 7-inch models. This screen has a pixel display resolution of 1280 × 800 and is housed in an equally uncommon chassis.
The Sony Tablet S has a tapered casing that has been compared to a book whose half had been folded toward its back. The innovative design permits users to hold the tablet easily with a single hand while their other hand makes touch input on the display.
Its hardware underneath, however, hints at the fact that this tablet is an older model. Its processor is the dual core NVIDIA Tegra 2. Fortunately, the Sony Tablet S device no longer runs on Android 3.1 Honeycomb OS, which it originally shipped with. Now, users can enjoy Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich goodness on the tablet thanks to an upgrade that had been pushed out a couple of months ago.
Furthermore, users who wish to download content get access to Google Play as well as Sony’s PlayStation store. Another Sony exclusive feature is an IR transmitter built right into the device that works with a universal remote control app. This feature enables users to enjoy a portable home theater system on the slate.
