PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Today the new Xperia Tablet starts hitting doorsteps and store shelves. And how do we mark this momentous occasion? Well... Sony engineer Takuya Inaba ripped apart the gear and explained what's inside. Okay, more like gently opened. Either way, if you love geeking out on parts, then this is the article for you." Sony - or, well, at least its mobile department - is starting to get very cosy with us on the geek side. I approve - although the company has a long way to go before it cleared its name.

I think Sony have realised that we're a scornful lot who will sometimes even carry through our threats to boycott a company, after their past several years of screwups (whether born of malice of incompetence). They want us on-side. I must say, even for a company really pandering to our demographic, it is really unusual for a company to post a teardown of their own device. Perhaps there's been more of an internal cultural change than we give them credit for.
