One of the XDA Developers forum members has found a range of accessories for the rumored Sony Xperia Tablet. The device has been leaked before, but never in such clear detail. This time we get a music stand, desktop stand and keyboard case, all compatible with the newcomer. The Sony Xperia Tablet will most likely be unveiled next week at IFA 2012.
As shown in the pics, in desktop mode the device can be rotated so it’s used in both portrait and landscape mode on the stand. Usually we see stands with tablets that must be used in landscape mode. We’ve also got a Media Dock, serving as an amplifier for the audio experience of the tablet and also involving a remote control. This allows the slate to be controlled from the distance, switch songs and adjust the volume. The keyboard case shown here is also pretty nice and it’s not yet clear if the keys will be touch ones like on the Microsoft Surface or if they’ll be smaller buttons.
From what we know so far, the Xperia Tablet is a quad core Tegra 3 affair at 1.4 GHz, with an 8 megapixel cam at the back and a 1.3 MP cam upfront. There’s also 1GB of RAM and a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels on that 9.4 inch display (if this diagonal was kept). The slate runs Android 4.0 ICS and it has a weight of just 570 grams. Inside it there’s a 6000 mAh battery and price will be about 400 euros for the 16GB model and 600 euros for the 64GB one.
