The Sony Tablet P launched at IFA 2011 (along with its non-identical twin), giving us our first chance to get to grips with that funny cylindrical, hinged design that Sony reckons can shake up the tablet market.

Check out the video and let us know what you think of Sony's adventurous tablet design in the comments below.
