It&#039;s thinner, slicker and it makes for great eye candy – so if it didn&#039;t grab your attention the first time round, perhaps the newer model will change your mind.

As a kitchen and living room tablet, Sony’s new offering will be hard to challenge, though it’s yet to prove that distinctive form is really more practical than a standard tablet shape.
