Video Unlimited

Update:The full version of Video Unlimited is now available. See Video Unlimited Arrives on Sony Tablet S for more details.

When the Sony Tablet S launched last week, two things stood out. Video Unlimited and Music Unlimited were not yet available, though they were featured on the home screen. Over this last weekend at least one of them received an update. Video Unlimited now offers 5 older movie titles. With a caption stating that the full store is coming soon, you can choose from the following 99 cent rentals:

  • 13 Going on 30
  • Joe Dirt
  • The New Guy
  • The Wedding Planner
  • White Chicks

Quite the eclectic selection. When you click on the image thumbnails you are taken to an information page with all the pertinent details like price, running time, MPAA rating, and plot. You can rate the movie and watch a preview as well. While the selection is not that great currently, it is a nice preview for things to come. It would have been nice to have the full program out of the box, but it is better to delay the software temporarily rather than the hardware, especially considering the fierce competition the Tablet S faces.
