Last year's Sony Tablet S wasn't perfect, but it was refreshing. It was a sign that Sony could still innovate, and that it wasn't afraid to try something different. The new Xperia S tablet is an improvement in every way. But it's still hung up on those same Sony snags.
It's been exactly a year since the original Sony Tablet S debuted. It was unique, and a lot better than the terrible Tablet P, but it never got to be all that popular. This year's Tablet S returns with the Xperia moniker and a set of improvements that should fix the flaws from the first time around.
