Vaio Tablet Prototype

Sony and Vaio are no longer working together as a single entity, but it seems the newly formed Vaio is eager to remind consumers just what the talented teams are capable of producing. The company has revealed an attractive render of a high-end Windows tablet.

Simply named the "Vaio Prototype", this tablet isn't quite ready yet for release, but the images provided do show what Vaio is working towards and it looks gorgeous – in fact, you could actually liken this prototype to the Surface Pro 3 by Microsoft. That's not necessarily a negative as the latest Surface is an absolute dream machine.

It's clear Vaio is going after a specific segment of the market.

The prototype itself will sport a 12.3-inch display with a resolution of 2,560x1704, support a stylus, and be powered by a quad-core Intel Haswell CPU with Iris graphics. As one can see from the teased specifications, Vaio will be producing a premium experience for the high-end market. How does $1,800 sound? Vaio will be focusing on the Japanese market for the time being.
