Control Your Universe with the Sony Tablet S

Universal remote controls are not new and exciting pieces of technology, but what if you could control your TV, Blu-ray player, stereo and cable box with an app built into a tablet computer? If this sounds compelling, the only tablet that’s capable of this is the new Sony Tablet S (available in 16GB and 32GB). The built-in IR universal remote blaster isn’t the only feature that sets the Tablet S apart from the competition. When connected to a Wi-Fi network, you’ll be able to instantly share photos, audio and video with any DLNA-connected devices. And like the IR remote, it doesn’t matter if the DLNA equipment is made by Sony or another manufacturer.

The Sony Tablet S isn’t just another glass rectangle running Android Honeycomb 3.1. It has a unique, wedge-like design that centers what little weight it has in the palm of your hand. Unlike other tablets, the Sony Tablet S is really easy to hold in one hand, and its angled display makes it easier to view on a desk or a table, without the need for additional accessories.

Because it’s a Sony product, the Tablet S has access to exclusive PlayStation-Certified games (in addition to the bounty of available Android games) as well as eBooks through Sony’s Reader Store, the six million songs in its Music Unlimited service, and it has the ability to rent or own hit movies on its subscription-free Video Unlimited service. You’ll enjoy listening to music through the built-in speakers and headphone jack, and its 9.4" TruBlack LED screen provides you with a rich and vibrant entertainment experience.
