Although it might get overshadowed by Amazon’s freshly new dirt-cheap Kindle Fires, Sony’s Xperia Tablet S still looks like a decent choice for any 10-inch tablet lover. Aside from the powerful hardware, original design and intriguing pre-loaded software, the Xperia Tablet S seemed to have another thing going for it.
Everyone hates waiting for a gadget to actually start selling after its formal introduction, with most major manufacturers usually taking their sweet time to put new devices up for grabs. We’ve seen loads of phones and tablets that took weeks or even months to be made available, so Sony really did a fine job with the Xperia Tablet S’s availability.
While Sony Canada initially estimated that the first pre-orders would be fulfilled starting on September 6 (yesterday), it now seems that the shipping date has been pushed to September 10 (next Monday). That is the date when the tabs will start leaving Sony’s stockrooms, so you’ll probably have to wait an additional two or three days to actually get the gadgets.
I’m sure that a couple of you will get at least a bit upset at this unexpected delay (we do live in the high-speed era after all), but you have to keep in mind that you’ll most likely get a brand new Xperia Tablet S in just two weeks after its unveiling. Not bad!
