MWC 2012: Sony announces release date for Tablet P

February 28, 2012

On Tuesday, Sony announced that it will begin selling its two-screen tablet, the Tablet P, on March 4.

The tablet will cost $399.99 with a two-year contract. The tablet has the capability to run on AT&T’s HSPA+ network, making it capable of 4G speeds. The tablet will run Android 3.2, Honeycomb, and has a battery life of seven hours.

According to the release, the tablet has two 5.5-inch screens and is hinged in the middle. Overall, the shape is similar to what Wired’s Charlie Sorrel called a “squashed burrito.” The screens can work independently or together. The Tablet P has 1 GB of internal memory and comes with a microSD card slot and microUSB port.

AT&T is offering a couple of data plans for the device. Two-year contracts come in two flavors: $35 a month for 3GB and $50 for 5GB. If a contract doesn’t interest you, the price of the device jumps up to $549.99 and you can get 250MB of data for $14.99 a month, 3GB of data for $30 a month or 5GB for $50 a month.

The tablet will also work with WiFi networks, and users will have access to AT&T’s hotspot network.
