Japanese electronics giant Sony has freshly unveiled a 20-inch all-in-one Tablet PC – The new Vaio Tap 20. Users worldwide were surely expecting most of the makers would float tons of Windows 8 enabled hybrids. But whoever has expected an all-in-one Tablet PC that is battery-powered?
Sony claims that the all new Vaio Tap 20 is designed keeping the families in mind as users can easily carry it all over their homes. However, at 140 sq. inches and 11.4 pounds it is suggested that you don’t keep hauling it all around.
There are three flavors of the new Tap 20 ranging from $800 to $2,310 with the key difference being the CPU – Users have the option to choose from Core i3 CPU families of either 1.8GHz Core i3-3217U; 1.7GHz Core i5-3317U; or 1.9GHz Core i7-3517U. They will even have either 4GB or 8GB RAM to choose, but, all three new Tap 20s will feature the same 1,600 x 900 pixels 20-inch display with a hard drive capacity of 1TB.
The Vaio Tap 20 comes with Artrage Studio Pro software and is equipped with Fingertaps – an application made by Sony itself that merges the drawing functions with reminders and to-do lists. Some of the other features of the Vaio Tap 20 include: 800p/1 megapixel Webcam, a pair of USB 3.0 jacks, SD card slot, and analog inputs for headphones and microphone.
Users can also download many of the Sony apps from the Windows Store such as the Socialife aggregator, VAIO Movie Creator, Music by Sony, and, Album by Sony. However, what hurts the users is the absence of the HDMI ports.
Sony announced that the all new Vaio Tap 20 will be available in the U.S. from 26 October 2012 – the very day Windows 8 launches.
