Sony‘s newest tablet to grace the Android marketplace is the Xperia Tablet S. It was announced just a week ago in Berlin, Germany, during IFA 2012 and went up for sale immediately in the UK. Today however the new and improved tablet can finally be purchased for those in the US who’d like to enjoy that Xperia goodness.
Yup, the tablet went up for pre-order back when they made their formal announcement on August 29th but today you can buy it right from Sony themselves along with tons of different accessories and stands. That neat keyboard cover from the IFA announcement will run you $99 but it sure looks neat.
Starting at just $399 the Sony Xperia Tablet S will get you Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It might not be the cheapest tablet around but you get all of Sony’s Playstation certified games, Music Unlimited, Movies Unlimited and more from Sony’s collection.
Oh and in case you didn’t know this tablet can be used as a universal remote for all those Sony Bravia TV owners. This magazine-like design has been improved over the original Tablet S and features a lightweight aluminum design instead of cheap plastic, and hopefully Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is in its near future.
