Sony’s finally bringing its uniquely designed Tablet P to America through AT&T starting March 4th for $399 on a two year contract.  The Tablet P runs Android 3.2 and comes with 4G connectivity.  However, the 4G connectivity simply implies HSPA+ as opposed to 4G LTE.

In terms of other specs and features, the Tablet P sports two screens measured at 5.5 inches each.  The design of the tablet is interesting since it has two screens which can be used together or separately.  You can simply put them together to view a video, or when playing video games, the top screen can act as the main viewing screen and the bottom can be the joystick/keyboard.  In addition, it boasts 1GB of RAM, 1GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear facing camera, 6GB of onboard memory, WiFi, and Bluetooth.

While the tablet does have a unique design, I’m not sure if it will win over the wallets of budget conscious consumers.  One of the short comings of the device is the fact that it will launch running Android 3.2, but it will be upgraded to Android 4.0 in the near future.  It will be available on March 4th for $399 on a two year contract.  However, if you prefer to purchase it off contract, then you can do so for $549.
