Dual Shock support added to Sony Tablet S

Tuesday, 20th December 2011 06:48 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Engadget reports the latest Japanese firmware update for Sony’s Tablet S added support for the PlayStation 3′s Dual Shock controllers. The controller apparently works wirelessly after initial, wired ste up and works with PlayStation Suite certified titles. Japanese gamers have been provided with a free game to celebrate the addition. The Tablet P has not been so fortunate. If your streaming-games-service-sense are tingling, you’re not alone. That’s the smell of the future, that is.

    Really like the design of the Tablet P, although I could imagine the many readers jumping & shouting “DS ripoff”. I reckon Sony remains one of the biggest innovators in electronics design, even if the concept isn’t truly original, Sony tends to find a way to make it look good. Sony also tends to have a minimal design variant, similar to Apple’s, for those who just want the premium without the extra frills.

    Would love these dual screen Android devices (yes, the Tablet P isn’t the only or the first one), to have true multitasking capabilities, IE, watching a movie on one screen while Facebook-ing on another, should also be one singular screen devices with enough screen real estate to work with but it’s look so much cleaner on dual screen devices first.

    Still in saying all of this, I have no intention to buy any tablet in the foreseeable future, I can hope that the PSV will be good enough at additional tasks to replace the *need for a tablet.

    *I’d imagine very few people truly need a tablet unless they have to have a computer by them at all times & a net/notebook just isn’t accessible enough. It’s main purpose remains in it’s multimedia functionality but there are a select few who truly need it.
