   As you probably know, everybody is looking nowadays for the Android-OS-based “Ipad Killer” and the Sony Xperia Z is a serious rival for the Apple product. While the price isn’t its main strong-point,  about $500 for the 16Gb wi-fi version and the technical specs don’t impress that much, this product has the looks to rival the Ipad or other Android-based tablets.

Our Impression

  We were impressed about the thin and elegant design, considering it being a serious contender for the Ipad Retina Display. One of the best looking tablets on the market.

  Other accessories that you can consider buying with this tablet are:  Sony leather cover – $90 , docking station – $45 , screen protector – 22$ . So you would better check your savings account if you want to buy this tablet, as nice things are expensive.  Price will be around $400-$500 in the United States. Price should be the only drawback, but let’s hope Sony will be reasonable on the US market.

 

  The new Sony Tablet Z 16gb version can be found at Amazon for $499.99.

  The new Sony Tablet Z 32gb version can be found at Amazon for $599.99.

Posted by Sony Tablets January - 10 - 2013 - Thursday ADD COMMENTS

  Performing a software reset on your Sony Tablet S is quite easier than you think.  The software reset may be needed when an application becomes frozen or if your device is performing slower than it should be.

  Also, the software reset may be necessary if Sony’s Tablet S Wi-Fi connection is performing inconsistently.

 The software reset procedure will close all running applications and services and then the tablet will restart.

  Notice that you don’t have to worry about losing data or apps,  since the software reset keeps all your data and applications exactly the way they wore before the reset.

  In order to perform a software reset,  check the right side of the Sony Tablet S, next to the volume buttons locate the reset indicator.  All you have to do is press the reset button using a pin, a small paperclip or a needle and that’s it.

  Your data and apps will not be removed and now you can use your device just like the first day you bought it.
