Question [Q] What is this weird device??

I have an Xperia device and was searching through the Play Store for anything that's Small App compatible, then found this video demonstration of an app:
" ソニタブッター for small app: http://youtu.be/cG63zb4jN9w "

My question: What on earth is the device used in the video?

It could be something Sony, since it was demonstrating a Small App for Xperia devices. It's definitely Android, since it was demonstrating functionality of something in the Play Store. This is the only video by that uploader on YouTube and his channel is in a foreign language, otherwise I'd ask him directly.

It looks like a really cool device , and might be fun for everyone to know more about.
Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Me either.
And apparently it even came stateside? The link you shared isn't even an unlocked, but an AT&T-branded device.

But Android Honeycomb? What kind of hardware is inside there?


Also, thanks for responding?

You can find unlocked/international ones on eBay.

Apparently updatedable to 4.0 ICS. Honeycomb 3.0 was a tablet-only version of Android that was abandoned/integrated into 4.0 and future versions.

Dual core 1GHZ nVidia Tegra 2, 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM, microSD slot, 5MP camera.

Yeah, but Honeycomb feels awkward and nerfed between 4.0 ROMS and Cyanogenmod 7's openness.
Definitely good hardware for its time though. I wonder what other special development endeavors were made on the device?
Maybe it would've caught on if it had some sort of interface on the outside of the clamshell as well? Like the concepts in Samsung's demo video when they first announced flexible displays.
But that's a different subject.

Thanks again for the information. No question about it this time 😝
