It wasn’t too long ago that many believed that small tablets would be the way of the future, which led to the creation of devices like the iPad mini, Nexus 7, and Kindle Fire, just to name a few. However it seems that the future could be about creating bigger tablets, like the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or the rumored 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
That being said, is Sony planning on hopping on board the large tablet bandwagon next? Well according to a recent post by DigiTimes, it seems that the answer is yes. The publication is reporting that Sony is working on a 12-inch tablet that they are expected to launch in Q1 of 2015. Sony will not be alone in their efforts as DigiTimes claims that other vendors are developing large-sized tablets as well.
It is unclear as to when exactly Sony will debut this alleged tablet, but given that Sony tends to show off a lot of their mobile products at events such as CES and MWC, chances are if Sony does plan to announce something, we could be hearing about it then, plus CES and MWC fall under Q1 2015, so it might not be that far-fetched.
Also interestingly enough if the report is true, this would be 180-degree turn by Sony who had recently announced the smaller Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but what say you? Are large tablets in our future or do you think that it’s a getting a bit out of hand?
