We first caught a glimpse of Sony's upcoming flagship tablet back at the end of July, and now it's official. Dubbed the Xperia Tablet S, it's undeniably the successor to last year's Tablet S. The specs from the aforementioned leak were essentially spot on:

  • Slim new aluminium body and splash-proof design
  • 9.4” HD display with OptiContrast™ Panel with low-friction coating
  • NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor and Android 4.0.3 operating system
  • Android version 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Various experiences with original applications and Sony’s network services
  • Optimized accessories (sold separately) to enhance experiences in every scene

Update: The 16GB version will sell for $400, with the 32GB and 64GB going for $500 and $600, respectively.

    Disappointing screen resolution, on an otherwise good looking android tablet... Best stick to the ASUS TF700T

    First I read Sept 7th, is it Sept 12th for the US?

    Any word on the resolution of the screen?

    9.4" screen, does it seem smaller than a 10.1" screen by a noticeable difference or does it seem like its the same size (even though its not) I don't want a screen that seems smaller than what I'm used to...

    Everything about this tablet is appealing to me, the hardware (Sony), the design (sleek), the features (comparable to the Infinity), the expandable storage (great!), the price (The best in its genre with all the features this thing packs, its $100 cheaper than the Infinity and has the best of both Infinity and Note 10.1 (IR blaster and some similar software features).

    looks pretty badass imo.. however the screen Rez is definitley a let down unless they can price it right (which would be pricing it low) :)-
