After suffering a few setbacks over the past year, Sony has officially revealed a release date for its foldable dual-screen Tablet P.

The Tablet P will be released on March 4, and is available to purchase both in-store and on AT&T’s website for $400 with a two-year 4G HSPA+ service agreement. Not too keen on a contract? Customers will also be able to opt for a more flexible — albeit more expensive — month-to-month or prepaid-service data plans, which raises the price further north to $550.

Sony’s latest tablet certainly carries a unique form factor. The Tablet P weighs a measly 0.83 pounds, and features dual 5.5-inch displays that fold together. It’s powered by Google’s Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) operating system and – in a nod to gamers – comes with full PlayStation certification, which means users can download and play original PlayStation games. Customers will also be able to connect wirelessly to Sony’s music and video-streaming services, as well as download ebook content from Sony’s Reader Store.

Because nobody likes to browse the Internet at snail-like speeds, Sony has promised the Tablet P will offer faster loading times thanks to in part to its Quick view and Quick Touch technologies.

As with most tablets out now, Sony is aiming to provide consumers access to a large amount of digital content and entertainment. Offering plenty of entertainment options is important for many tablet buyers and since a company like Sony is synonymous with entertainment – and happens to have a strong presence in gaming, music, and film — it’s no surprise that the Japanese consumer electronics giant is trying to flex its muscle in the already burgeoning tablet market

The Tablet P will also incorporate full DNLA certification to allow users the ability to push their content to DLNA-certified TVs and AV receivers. What’s more, customers will also be given unlimited access to AT&T hot spots nationwide.
