To deliver the best entertainment experience, the tabletop VAIO sports Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 to ensure crisp, natural movie viewing with fine details; and 2.1-channel speakers with S-Force Front Surround 3D and ClearAudio+ to deliver vibrant, room-filling soundtrack.
The VAIO TAP supports Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi 802.11b/g/n connecitivity as well as NFC for one-touch pairing and file sharing.
