Quick look at the Sony VAIO Tab 20 Windows 8 table-top PC

Sony went big at IFA 2012 yesterday by unveiling a 20" Windows 8 table-top PC, which (when laid on a flat surface) looks something like a battle overview screen from Star Wars. The device is set to sport an Intel i7, i5 or i3 processor, accompanied by a maximum of 8GB RAM, 750GB or 1TB HDD, USB 3.0, SD card slot, HD webcam and Intel HD 4000 graphics. Powering Windows 8, the Sony VAIO Tab 20 will definitely turn heads.

Our team on the floor at IFA in Berlin managed to take a minute to look more closely at the Sony VAIO Tab 20, which can be seen in the video. Be sure to take a gander and see just how large this portable device is - remember it features a built-in, rechargeable battery but does weigh in at 11 pounds. The stand is visible in the short clip to reveal just how the table-top PC can be used as both a tablet or as a desktop.

Stay tuned for more action from IFA 2012!
