This design may seem completely mad when compared to conventional Android tablets, but this approach works well on a much smaller scale with the Nintendo DS. For example, you can use the bottom screen as a game controller while playing the game in the top screen, but obviously this will require a specially written application. Tablet P is the first Playstation certified tablet. You can play playstation games on the tablet and share the entertainment with other people.
