The Sony Tablet S is the latest Sony tablet with specs that are very similar to other Android Honeycomb tablets: Tegra 2 CPU, 9.4 inches screen with TruBlack Sony panel. The design however is quite different from other tablets and is supposed to make it easier to use, it is also quite light (lighter than an iPad 2). While this tablet was released at the end of 2011, it was not rooted until very recently, thanks to Dan Rosenberg we can now root the Sony Tablet S. Find out more after the break.
