CES 2012: Kindle Fire not small enough for you? Here’s a folding tablet

LAS VEGAS — Somewhere between a smartphone and a tablet lies the Sony Tablet P.

It’s a tablet that folds in half for easier portability and better protection due to its hard case. The screens are 5 and a half inches each. When typing an email, one half of the screen is the email field, the other half the virtual keyboard. When browsing the web, a web page takes up both screens.

The Tablet P has front and rear cameras, runs on Android 3.2 (Honeycomb), is 4G capable and will run on AT&T at launch. It will be out in late February. Sony has not set a price yet.

Here’s a short video of it:
