An unidentified Sony tablet recently paid a visit to the Federal Communications Commission website. According to the listing, the tablet is part of the VAIO series and has the model number SVJ202A11L. Unfortunately, Sony did not release the model numbers for its upcoming devices, which include the Sony VAIO Duo, Sony VAIO Tap20, and the Sony Xperia Tablet S.
It is speculated, however, that the listing refers to the Sony VAIO Tap20 tablet. This device was already announced during last month’s IFA event where it was revealed that the device has Windows 8 as its Operating System. Like the Sony VAIO Tap20 tablet, the mystery tablet also likely runs on Windows Operating System because Sony is known to use the VAIO name on devices based on Windows, and not on Android.
Also supporting this theory is the fact that the Sony VAIO Duo had already made an appearance on the FCC website recently.
Lastly, the Liliputing blog offers that the label on the drawing of the device which appears on the website is small as compared to the actual tablet. This could be taken to mean that the tablet is rather large like the Sony VAIO Tap20, whose display measures 20 inches diagonally.
Based on Sony’s announcements last month, the Sony VAIO Tap 20 will have a 20-inch 10-point multitouch display with a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. Under the hood, it will run on an Intel Core i3, i5, or i7 processor and a sport terabyte of hard disk space. It will also have 8GB of RAM and Intel HD 4000 graphics. Other features include a card slot, USB 3.0 ports, speakers, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, Bluetooth 4.0 and Ethernet. It comes packed with a kickstand on its rear, enabling users to convert it into a an all-in-one desktop solution by attaching a keyboard and a mouse.
All these considered, it is still possible that the unknown tablet is an entirely new device altogether that is yet to be revealed by Sony.
