I bought xperia tablet S 16gb a week ago to gift it to my son on xmas, and to my surprise when i checked in settings -> storage it showed total storage space = 10gb only. I took it to the retailer and he called sony and they confirmed that the 16gb is marketing term as all tablets come with roughly 40% less storage. so excluding the default apps and OS the total usable capacity was equal to 6.7gb only. I asked sony and the retailer that if it’s got 10gb total storage space why are they selling it as 16gb ? they looked at me with blank face! anyways, i returned the tablet and got an ipad4. Sony xperia tablet – completely disappointed and thanks to apple ipad atleast saved the xmas fun.

Sony does this with the casing, equipment and one special feature: The Xperia Tablet S is splash-protected. Our test will reveal its other specialties.
