> In reply to nez @ 2012-07-29 08:27 from utAY - click to readHi nez, I own the sony tablet s, without 3G, but same display. It reacts wonderfully to the touch but believe me you cannot use any stylus on it, despite sony offering one at the sony store. The opinions there say everything. I recommend you the galaxy note 10.1 for your work. I hope I could help you.

I have been using Sony Tablet S 3G for nearly two months. Based on my experience using it, I put my feedback as below:

What is good:
=============
1. Good touch and screen resolution.
2. Five MP primary camera (Samsung/ many others don't have 5mp).
3. Universal Remote Control (no other tab has it).
4. Play Station Support (Specific to Sony, however, this feature is not available in India as of now, may be in future it will be made available).
5. DLNA support.
6. External SD Card support - 32gb tested - I have read on some forum that it can even work even with SDXC card of 64gb or 128gb).
7. External hard disk support though 'mini usb OTG host adapter' cable (with limitations - only those hard disk which have external power supply; should play flash drive of lower capacity, say 64 gb or 128 gb - I have tested my 8gb pen drive to work smoothly).
8. 3G that connects quickly and automatically when wifi is unavailable.
9. Good battery life (5-6 hrs of extensive use and 8-9 hrs of intermittent use).
10. Doesn't heat up even after long hrs of usage.

What is not good:
=================
1. No voice calling (or video calling using cellular network).
2. No Haptic Feedback on touch screen (little vibration when you touch the screen which makes feel good experience).
3. No HDMI port (but it has DLNA support which can compensate for HDMI).
4. Costly accessories (but you can get good quality accessories of third party manufacturers, Capdase, etc., at ebay or other e-shops.
5. Weaker wifi signals (but I have not experienced non-connectivity issues).
6. When you connect Tablet with your laptop, you will see only the internal memory and not the SD Card. That means, whatever you need to copy from you laptop, you will first need to copy on the internal memory. You can then transfer the files from the internal memory to the SD Card using an app called 'File Transfer'. You cannot copy anything directly on the SD Card the way we do in case of smart phones. This is a bug/ deficiency which I have also confirmed with Sony Customer Care.
7. When you insert the SD Card in its slot, the card becomes write protected (I am experiencing this after ICS update - do not know the behaviour before the update). Means, you cannot delete files from the SD Card. You also cannot create a default download directory on the SD Card for Browser. However, sony's inbuilt app 'File Transfer' has the ability to delete files from SD Card.
8. Only one colour option, i.e. Black. White colour option should also have been there. The tab would have been even more beautiful in white colour mixed with other supplementary colours.

Overall feedback:
=================
Considering the other comparable brands/ options available in the Indian market, I felt the Sony tab S 3g was the best choice. Make your own judgement. You have Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and Microsoft Surface book on card. I do not prefer Ipad because of many connectivity and storage related restrictions.

I've been using "Sony Tablet S 3G 16GB" for more than four months. I want to say that I have used iPad and many other Android tablets but Sony Tablet S is so far the best tablet. It might look thicker than other tablets in the start, but actually that makes it very comfortable to use. It's very light weight,Screen is bold and brilliant, the battery is very good, the processor is very fast, the camera is good. I got a 16GB high speed SD card which made it even better. All I'm saying it that I'm very happy with my Tablet S.

I can send and receive SMSs with my Tablet S 3G. So will they release a fix/update to enable GSM voice in order to make calls. And after a new update of Skype there are issues with Video calls.
