Sony's Tablet P comes with the latest technology by presenting two interactive screens in one tablet.

During the IFA show in Germany, Sony has unveiled their plans of releasing the first folding tablet computer in the world, which it hopes to be iPad’s top competitor. The Sony Tablet P will be sporting two 5.5-inch touchscreens with a resolution of 1024 x 480 pixels each, and can be folded in half — making it the most portable tablet if compared to Apple’s iPad and other similar devices. Sony even noted that the device could easily fit inside a jacket pocket or a hand bag.

One of the notable features of the Tablet P is that its two screens can be combined together to be used as one large screen. The two sides could also support different activities. For example, the upper one running a video game and the other screen running emails. Sony’s Tablet P is also expected to have a much cheaper retail price than the iPad 2 with the same network access.

Find out the full specifications, price, and release date of Sony Tablet P after the jump.
