Sony introduces Xperia Tablet S along with Xperia T, Xperia V and Xperia JAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
As expected, Sony took to the stage in Berlin today to kick off its IFA 2012 press conference, and the company introduced a handful of new products at the event. First up is the Xperia Tablet S, which we saw leak out a couple of times in the past month. The Xperia Tablet S packs a quad-core Tegra 3 processor buried inside its body, and interested customers will have the option of picking one up with either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage. In case that's not enough storage, the Xperia Tablet S also features a full-sized SD card slot. Other specs include a 9.4-inch 1280x800 IPS display, 6,000mAh battery, a splash-proof body, infrared support and Android 4.0.3.
Sony says that the Xperia Tablet S will be available starting September 7 (pre-orders start today) with pricing set at $399 for the 16GB model, $499 for the 32GB version and $599 for the 64GB flavor. The Xperia Tablet S will also be compatible with a number of accessories, including cover/keyboard combo for $99.99, docking stand for $99.99, charging cradle for $39.99 and a dock speaker that'll launch in November for $129.99.
