In some cases an accessory appears that has us all damaging our heads. We have actually no disagreements that devices have their place, taking existing hardware and either improving alreadying existing features or developing higher ones. Devices are simply well, but sometimes they fall wide off the mark. Occasionally we merely can’t quite get our heads around which assumed they were a good suggestion, permit alone that in fact accepted making them into a real, delivering product.


So when we viewed the SPA-TA1 accessory for tablet computers (which includes Sony’s own and the iPad, certainly), it went straight in to the group that belongs to those accessories that we instead wish had never made their method from principle to store.

That version number might not inform you anything whatsoever concerning what the accessory in question does, so allow us to break it to you in as tranquil a fashion as we could collect. Ready?


We rely on the vibrant content obtained our point around.

The attachment itself will take Sony’s QX10 or QX100 camera lens accessories and put it onto the Sony tablet or iPad of your choice, and will certainly function with practically any type of Android tablet computer around offered you get the right position, which on the face of points isn’t really too bad whatsoever. Nevertheless, taking a built-in camera and boosting it is something to be approved. And afterwards you remember this is for tablets, not mobile phones. Tablet computers!


Sony has actually been around for a long, long period of time and has actually most certainly thought of some extraordinary products in its time. The Walkman and PlayStation brand names will certainly decrease in history for all the ideal reasons, however the most effective Sony can really hope for the STA-TA1 is that every person forgets it as rapidly as feasible. In reality, we have actually ignored it two times currently now.

We’re quite eager on neglecting it for a 3rd time, too.


On the bonus side, the camera accessory will just set punters back $ 40, so you will not be cracking the bank when you’re perambulating holding your large tablet computer up in the air so you can take your images.

Can we all merely agree to proceed and pretend this was never released now?
