Shown at IFA 2012 last week, the Sony Xperia Tablet S has just been found on Sony Canada’s site, with a price tag of $499.99 and an “out of stock” mention. The device looks very much like the original Tablet S, with the folded magazine allure and all, but it gets a big specs bump.
The device runs Android 4.0 with the promise of getting Jelly Bean ASAP and it also has one touch power up universal remote feature, a Guest Mode and a splash proof case. When Sony presented the device, they said that the product would be available on September 7th in the USA, with preorders already available. The Xperia Tablet S will be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64 GB units and it appears that the 16GB one will actually cost $399.
Sony Xperia Tablet S is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core CPU at 1.4 GHz and it also comes with an ULP GeForce GPU, a 9.4 inch HD display and an 8 megapixel rear camera. There’s also a 1 megapixel front camera and a 6000 mAh battery among the specs. The product comes in WiFi only and WiFi + 3G versions.
