Sony sets its sights on the iPad Air with latest tablet

Announced Monday on the opening day of the Mobile World Congress, the tablet is the first device to run the Snapdragon 801 processor, Qualcomms latest and greatest quad-core chip. But Sony probably wont care as this is a device built to compete with the best that Apple, rather than Android, has to offer. So, as well as top-notch processing capabilities, the tablet has integrated digital noise-canceling technology (a world first) and at just 6.4mm thick and tipping the scales at 426g despite its 10.1-inch display, Sony can not only claim that its the slimmest, lightest waterproof tablet ever made, it can also say that its thinner and lighter than the 7.5mm thick 469g iPad Air. The display is wonderful, thanks to Sonys TV know-how, and the device has clearly been designed to perform in the areas that tablet users really want — multimedia consumption, gaming, web browsing and occasional productivity.
