Sony has confirmed that it’s next Android tablet is the Sony Xperia S.

It’s thinner and smaller than last year’s Sony Tablet S, but it still features support for Sony’s Playstation mobile software and other software including the company’s subscription music service.

As expected, the Sony Xperia S features a 9.4 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB to 64GB of storage.

The tablet runs Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich software, and supports 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS.

Sony is also dropping the wedge-shaped design of its earlier tablets, instead going with a slimmer overall design. The company will offer a range of accessories including covers, stands, and speaker docks.

Prices start at $399 for a 16GB model and go up to $599 for a model with 64GB of storage. Pre-orders start today, and the tablet should be available starting September 7th.

Sony is also throwing in coupons that will let you buy 3 movies from the Google Play Store (out of a list of 15 available movies).

You can find prices for the covers, stands, and other accessories in the press release.

One reply on “Sony Xperia S Android tablet coming in September”

  1. I predict it will look nice, be built extremely well, be ahead of its peers in a single category and behind them in many others, and cost 25% more than the competition.

    You know… like everything else Sony has produced in the last 15 years.
