Sony Tablet S Tablet Review
A poor offering from Sony, with little to recommend it against the competition.
Music & Audio Controls
Much like every other Android tablet we've ever reviewed, the music controls are the same, familiarly simplistic interface that we've come to know and love. On the bottom of the screen lie all of your control options, depending on which screen you prefer. You can also make playlists, sort your audio files by a number of ways, and leave your music playing long after the screen shuts off to save battery.
You can also play music from one of the five home screens. If you swipe to the right one screen from center, you will see a mini player available to you. From there you can only access a few basic controls, but it's still a convenient feature if you don't want to mess around with the full interface, or if you have some serious browsing to do.
Music & Audio Management
Though Android stores your files in one of a few possible folder destinations, the music application allows you to browse your music collection by sorting through cover art thumbnails, a list, or cover flow. While it may not be the most efficient way to manage music in the world, it's certainly very user-friendly and attractive to look at.

Music & Audio Battery Life
Like every other tablet we've ever reviewed, the Sony Tablet S managed to play music for 24 hours straight, mostly due to the fact that it will continue playing music when the screen shuts off, preserving battery life. Your mileage may vary, of course, as you're probably not going to use your device as a ridiculously oversized MP3 player.
