The P features two 5.5” high quality TruBlack capacitive touch screen displays with vibrant colors and high contrasts. The compact size and the elegant clamshell form factor allows users to easily carry it in their (large) pockets. The P gets the latest version of Android – that is, 3.2 Honeycomb.
On the hardware side , the P offers a 5 megapixel rear camera, a VGA front camera, 4GB of internal memory, a full size SD card slot (for media exchange only), a micro USB connector, a 3080 mH Li-Ion battery and WiFi b/g/n.
A nice use of the two screens has been implemented in the photo gallery: if a photo is geotagged, you will see the picture on the top screen and a map with the location will be displayed on the second screen.
Like the Sony Tablet S, the P is Playstation certified and comes with iconic title Crash bandicoot preloaded. Additionally, the device supports DLNA, it can stream content to DLNA-compatible TV, PC or speakers. Sony showed me a demo of the capability on the Tablet S, check it here.
No pricing has been announced, the device will be sold through AT&T later this year.
