Sony Tablet P: the world’s first folding tablet computer.

Sony Tablet P has two 5.5 inches touchscreens, 16 GB memory, wi-fi, 3G. The tablet can be folded in half, making it more portable than the iPad and other similar devices.

Sony says it will easily fit inside a handbag or jacket pocket. The new tablet is cheaper than an iPad 2 with the same wi-fi and 3G internet access.

The two sides of the tablet can be combined and used as one large screen – albeit with a potentially irritating hinge running through the middle.

Both Sony Tablet P sides can also operate independently, with one running a game and one running emails, for example.

Sony also presented at the Berlin show a more conventional tablet – Sony Tablet S.

At the touch of a button, video and photos can be transferred – or ‘thrown’ – from the tablets to compatible TV sets, such as Sony’s Bravia range.
