Following the official unveiling of Sony's Tablet P and Tablet S at the end of last month, the 9.4-inch Tablet S is now available to pre-order in the US, UK and Canada, with each country being given September 16th as the release date on both the official Sony website and Amazon.com.

In the UK, you will be able to purchase the Tablet S starting at £399 for the 16GB model. In the US, the same model will be available for $499. If you want to make the jump to 32GB, it will put you back £479 in the UK and $599 in the US.

In case you need a quick refresher of what you'll be getting for your hard earned money, the Tablet S will ship with Android 3.1 Honeycomb, and it will be powered by a dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1GHz.

    For me, It's more about the who. Sony has a history of putting weight behind technologies. Their adoption of Android on a multitude of products is huge. It'd be interesting to see what a PS4 running Android would look like! (unlikely)

    Been in the market now for a tablet for about a month. Agree with Greg that the specs here do not set my world alight. I think the main pull for this is the infa-red connectivity to the rest of my Sony products... but alas... I will not be purchasing at this pricing strategy....

    Boooooooo

    Its a dud, its no an iPad, don't price it like one. Companies need to learn from the HP fire sale that is if the price is right, the masses will flock to your product. Regardless of what features it has, what OS it has, how much memory or cpu it has, people are only interested in the low prices. I don't believe that a company like Sony can't drive down the cost of manufacturing so this collusion of the 499 price point for all the 16gb variations of Android tablets is not going to fly in the face of consumers. Hint the price for 16gb should be 159 and 32GB 249. Anything else, I might as well buy a laptop.
