Sony’s current tablet line-up comprises of two devices—the Tablet P and Tablet S. Both of these run on the dual core Tegra 2 chip, but there already are indications Sony may change over to the latest Tegra 3 quad-core chip for its future line of tablets. In fact, a Japanese site Ambelo is claiming a Sony device named Sony V150 is being tested with this processor.
This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. The Tegra 2 chip once was the craze among tablet PC makers, though the preference has naturally shifted to the Tegra 3 chip after it has been launched. The Android 4.0 ICS operating system is quickly becoming popular as well, and the rumored Sony V150 device scores on both these aspects. The screen resolution is believed to be 1280x 752 pixels with a screen refresh rate of 60 frames per second as reported by the NenaMark test.
Further details of the tablet device are awaited.
