The Sony Xperia Tablet S gets a quad-core Tegra 3 processor and (apparently) a professional photo shoot.

Accessorize

Sony doesn't shy away from accessories for its new Xperia Tablet S. Prices for the tablet start at $399 for 16GB of storage. Pictured here is the Cover with Keyboard, which performs triple duty, acting as tablet cover, keyboard, and stand for $99.

The $99 Docking Stand features three USB ports and an HDMI-out port.

Rocking the Docking

Here's the stand again as it would appear while using it and an optional keyboard accessory. I'd imagine the screen would have something more interesting on it, however.

Remote

Sony's remote control software looks pretty much as it did on the original Tablet S. Like before, I feel a less busy interface would have been ideal.

Watch now

Watch Now will act as a TV guide, showing you the current TV listings, but also suggesting new shows based on your preferences and other social trends.

Toned down

Sony has thankfully toned down its Android tablet skin used on its previous tablets. The new interface is a lot cleaner and more practical.
