Very clearly, the AndroidCentral folks think of the MediaPad X1 as a large phone than a small tablet, which is quite understandable given the world average for a smartphone screen size.

It also features Sony’s Exmor R, i.e., a 13 mega-pixel shooter which isn’t quite a commonplace as far as tablets go. On the front, the MediaPad has a 5 mega-pixel shooter.

    Can’t believe they’re selling it here for $200 and $520 overseas. What’s the difference?
