Hands On with the Sony Xperia S, Tablet S, Tablet P

The Sony Ericsson brand might be gone, but we can look forward to some pretty compelling pieces of Sony hardware in 2012. XDA TV was on location at CES 2012 to film some hands-on with the Xperia S, Tablet S, and Tablet P. Click on for the video and check out Sony’s latest and greatest!

First up we have the Xperia S which is a slim and handsome Android 2.3 smartphone. It will be upgradable to Android 4.0 not too long after launch. It’s running with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.5GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM. The screen is 4.3″ at 720p resolution. On the rear you’ll find an impressive 12MP camera that can take video at 1080p. You can choose 16 or 32GB of space, but there will be no microSD expansion slot. Look for the Xperia S, to be available in black and white, in Q1.

Next up we have the Sony Tablet S and Tablet P. The former has been around for several months and features a 9.4″ display with 1280×800 resolution, a dual-core Tegra 2 CPU running at 1.0GHz, plus dual cameras and 32GB of storage. It’s running on Android 3.2 but will soon get an ICS upgrade. It can be had for $500 at Best Buy and Amazon. The Tablet P is the more interesting of the two. It has a unique dual-screen design. Each screen is 5.5″ at 1024×480 resolution and is also powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 at 1.0GHz. Look for the Tablet P to be available on AT&T, though no availability and pricing has not been announced.

New AOSP Branch Details Potential Build System Upgrades?

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
