Sony's rumoured Xperia tablet leaks again!

   Sony's Tablet S was a relatively successful product for the company, they manage to shift a few and it seems this has spurred them on to create a successor. 
   This time Sony has kept the 'folded over' side from the tablets predecessor, but with a slimmed down chassis, so that it’s less of a taper and more consistent. Interestingly, if these renders are accurate, the tablet appears to borrow the “cosmic flow” wallpaper from the Xperia smartphones something that suggests Sony is trying to better integrate their smartphone and tablet arms.

   And the vital specifications are expected to run something like this; Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 9.4" 1280 x 800 pixel screen, up to 64GB of storage, WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 and 3G, along with GPS, an SD card slot and an 8-megapixel camera. A front-facing 1-megapixel camera, 10hr battery and the usual roster of sensors. It's been reported that Sony will offer various accessories including an HDMI dongle, multimedia dock and a QWERTY keyboard case. This could be one tablet to be reckoned with!
