Sony introduced a 20-inch touchscreen tabletop tablet PC named the VAIO Tap 20 PC, and an 11-inch slider hybrid tablet/ultrabook called the VAIO Duo 11, both of which are powered by Windows 8.
VAIO Tap 20 (above) tabletop PC is designed to lay flat on a coffee table for the whole family to play games on its large 20″ screen. With a removable battery, users can easily move it from room to room in the house – from bedrooms and kids’ play areas to the kitchen or garage. Powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 by Sony for amazing picture quality, VAIO Tap 20 ensures crisp, clear images while the built-in stand and wide angle panel enables viewing at many angles. Users can also stand VAIO Tap 20 upright and use it as a fully-functioning desktop PC to work on documents, surf the web and check emails with the supplied wireless keyboard and mouse.
VAIO Tap 20 comes with a choice of apps that are optimized for responsive 10-point multi-touch operation, including Fingertapps Organizer, a calendar app for family members to communicate digitally via posted to-do lists and recorded messages and videos.
The versatile VAIO Duo 11 PC transforms from an Ultrabook to a multi-media tablet with scratch-resistant glass. It features a durable Surf Slider mechanism to switch smoothly between keyboard and tablet for a dual functioning computing experience.
Slim and light, VAIO Duo 11 weighs approximately 2.84 lbs. and features an 11.6-inch screen. VAIO Duo 11 also offers a pressure-sensitive digitizer stylus for the satisfyingly expressive feel of natural handwriting directly on the touchscreen. A choice of swappable pen tips allows for a firmer or softer writing feel. It’s excellent for writing, sketching and interacting with media and applications on the bright, detail-packed Full HD touchscreen.
Featuring an LCD display and backlit keyboard, the VAIO Duo 11 is available on latest-generation Intel Core processors for maximum productivity. In addition to performance, looks and mobility, VAIO Duo 11 includes full functional I/O port connectivity and Sony’s unique Sheet Battery technology (sold separately).
