How do you counter Apple's iPad? With another iPad. That's what Sony's going to do, according to Sony's CFO Nobuyuki Oneda.

"[Slates are] a market we are also very interested in. We are confident we have the skills to create a product...Time-wise we are a little behind the iPad but it's a space we would like to be an active player in."

To be fair, Sony's Reader was the first major eReader in the world, and it was a pretty remarkable product for its time. The Vaio P, while a bit unusable by normal-sized humans, is also a small engineering marvel.
