For the Wi-Fi + 3G model, which comes with 16GB of storage, the price is £429 (approx. $685). However, this model is currently only available for pre-order, and Sony hasn’t yet confirmed when it will be shipping.
The Xperia Tablet S boasts a 9.4-inch 1280 x 800 display, and is powered by a 1.3GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. It also packs 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and a whopping 6,000 mAh battery. The device comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed.
Not only are its specifications better, but the Xperia Tablet S is also a lot cheaper than Apple’s iPad, the current king of the tablet market. In the U.K., prices start at £399 (approx. $637) for the latest model, and rise to £429 ($685) for 32GB of storage.
