The images show that it has a backlit keyboard which is attached to the tablet and will have a number of touch and type cover options. You'll notice that there's a pen/stylus too, which means that it could well take both pen and finger manipulation.

There's also a retractable stand and it will be running Microsoft Office.

So what do you make of that then? The latest tablet to not do as well as the iPad, or a reasonable challenger in the tablet market?

    No doubt Apple will sue Sony since Apple thought of the rectangle before anyone else.

    Ha Ha - spot on Steve O

    Having a proper keyboard that neatly attaches/slips off is a big boost as tablets are pain for doing "proper" typing...

    Also probably nearer £1000 than £200, so no one will buy it, as per every other sony tablet

    The two are not comparable. I use my Windows 8 tablet about as much as my iPad, but for completely different things. Generally, the Windows tablet gets used when I want a keyboard dock (i.e. when a normal laptop would do about as well), and the iPad gets used for pretty much everything else. Basically, the touch screen makes it a laptop that's easier to switch to when you've just been using the iPad...

What do you think?
