Sony Tablet P review: The double-edged dual-screen sword
The Sony Tablet P can fold to half its size for easy portability. Unfortunately, its dual-screen implementation is marred by one seam. One big, distracting seam.
I'll get this out of the way up front: I love the way the Sony Tablet P reduces itself to half its size to easily fit into my pocket. It's a feature I never thought I wanted until I got to experience it, firsthand.
That's the good news. The bad news is that in order to make a tablet that could fold itself in half, Sony split the tablet's screen into two halves. Actually, that's not inherently bad news. I can easily imagine a dual-screen tablet where the two screens looked and performed as one, seamlessly.
No, the bad news is that the Sony Tablet P is not that tablet.
Theexplains exactly why that is, and the pictures below should provide some compelling visual evidence as well.
