good deal overall

Comments about Sony Tablet S Black Cradle:

This cradle is ideal for charging. I hated the flimsy power cord plugged into the bottom of the tablet. Now the flimsy cord is plugged in under the cradle base. This will create longer life with the cord (I Hope!!!). The tablet allows you to do most everything while docked on the cradle but attempting to play a touchscreen game while docked may slightly jar it off the power and end your game. Good for the price.

      Comments about Sony Tablet S Black Cradle:

      The Sony cradle is a perfect accessory to the Sony tablet. It works as a charging station and also holds the tablet at a perfect angle to view weather/clock/etc apps from a distance or to read news up close. I appreciate the minimalist design that functions perfectly.

      Must have accessory

      Comments about Sony Tablet S Black Cradle:

      This absolutely adds to the Sony S experience and was very well-designed. It's included now with Sony S tablet purchases, so free at the moment with purchase of a new tablet. You just drop the tablet into the cradle and it charges. Tight fit. But then with the software it becomes a digital photo frame or with Cassandra software as a basic Chumby. So charges and a great display device. Just well designed and a huge beni for the Sony tablet S

        Very nice design. The power cable goes smoothly in to the bottom of the cradle. Instantly convert your Tablet S in to a calendar, clock or photo frame by just placing the tablet in the cradle.

        A GREAT PLACE TO DOCK YOUR TABLET

        By KimByong

        Comments about Sony Tablet S Black Cradle:

        I love this cradel! I have it sitting on my desktop as I keep my tablet in it all day. The tablet charger fits nicely in the back wich lets you keep your tablet charged and running all day. I have an extra cradle in the bedroom, so that I can dock my tablet next to me to use my tablet as an alarm clock. They style of the cradle is perfect! I love how it hold my tablet and the bluetooth keyboard looks great sitting in front of the cradle. The whole set up is a wow factor and everyone that passes by my desk at work has to check it out. A+++++ on the tablet, cradle, and bluetooth keyboard!

        Comments about Sony Tablet S Black Cradle:

        After a week or so plugging in and out the unusual charger Sony gives you there had to be something easier. I didn't want to drop the money for something that appeared quite vague with little information about the product until MobileTechReview did an overview of the cradle (watch it for more info on the picture frame app and clock modes). Got it right away after that. You plug your existing charger into the back of the cradle and now you can just slip the tablet in and out. No clicking/locking, you just set it in and the weight of the tablet keeps the power contacts touching. It really is a great item. Looks good in the living room in either of the various display modes you get to select while in the cradle and I know the tablet is charged when I need it. Price is a bit steep but it is so convenient I have to strongly recommend it. -1 star due to price. Note, your charger is now in a fixed spot. Of course you can move the cradle and charger around but realistically that will get old. We actually share the cradle between two tablets right now so we have a spare charger floating around and the other with the cradle. We just pop in the different tablet to the cradle for charging since it is much easier. We'll see if we want another one if we find we keep pushing the other's tablet out before fully charged.
