Sony Ericsson 4G tablet spied

Next-gen Android slate spotted in Barcelona

Tablet peeped, even though Sony Ericsson claims it has no slate plans.

Sony Ericsson is working on a 4G tablet, with a prototype of the next-gen network-packing device snapped last week during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The slate, spied by eagle-eyed Dutch bloggers at the TDIA stand, appear to cut a chunky figure, with a bezel that would make even the current-generation iPad blush. According to reps on the stand, the Sony Ericsson 4G tablet will come loaded with Android, with a 3 megapixel camera up front for video calling.

Sony Ericsson last week denied it was working on a tablet, a claim seemingly back up by leaked designs and details of the Sony-only S1.
