Sony has treated IFA 2013 attendees to a tablet the Vaio Tap 11, the Vaio Tap 21 AIO and the Fit multi-flip convertible laptop in addition to the new flagship smartphone, a few new cameras and various other entertainment devices. The trio launched today, runs on the Windows 8 platform.
The Vaio Tap 11 is the company’s first Windows tablet and by the looks of it, the device is aimed towards giving the Surface Pro a run for its money. The slate comes with an 11.6-inch full HD Triluminos touchscreen with X-Reality for mobile and a digitizer stylus. Powering it up is an Intel Core processor and there’s SSD storage for quick data access. For snapping up images, an 8MP Exmor RS for PC camera is fitted on the rear. The company has even designed the device to operate as an infrared remote for entertainment systems. A wireless keyboard-cum-protective case is also being offered.
The Fit multi-flip is a lot like the Lenovo Yoga. Its convertible design allows you to utilize it as a laptop or tablet by simply flipping the display. The series comprises of 3 versions, namely the 13A, 14A and 15A, with 13.3-inch, 14-inch and 15.5-inch Triluminos screens, respectively. The first 2 models proffer 1080p visuals, while the last one delivers 2880 x 1620p resolution. Each notebook sports a Core i7-4500U processor with HD Graphics 4400, while the 15A can be equipped with an optional GeForce GT 735 GPU too.
The Tap 21 is the successor to the Tap 20 AIO. The new model is 30% lighter and even slimmer owing to its aluminum design. There aren’t many details on the PC as yet, but what we know for sure is that the screen supports 10 point multi-touch input, NFC connectivity has been included and the AIO can be picked up with SSD or Hybrid HDD storage in Core i5 or i7 processor choices.
We’re still waiting for Sony to announce the pricing for the newly launched trio, so stay tuned for an update. Where availability is concerned, the Vaio Tap 11 will be available in Europe from autumn 2013.
