PENCHANT FOR INNOVATION
Sony has this penchant for doing different things (“Frame Changer”, January 2012). Okay, Apple may be a body-length in front as far as this area is concerned, but remember that it was Sony which brought out the Walkman and popularised the personal video camera with its Handycam (so much so that for a long time video cameras were called Handycams irrespective of the brand) and various other trendsetting gadgets. It isn’t surprising then that it is the Japanese company that has given the tablet a new edge with its distinguishing design. It looks different from all other tablets and has pushed the envelope on tablet designing.
