As promised, Sony is now selling the Xperia Tablet S in the US. You can pick up the new tablet from the Sony Store for $400 and up.
That price buys you a tablet with a 9.4 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.5 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and Android 4.0 software. 32GB and 64GB models are also available.
All three tablets including WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. They also feature support for Sony’s PlayStation Mobile software, which lets you download and run classic PlayStation games on a mobile device.
Sony is also giving away credits for 3 video purchases from the Google Play Store when you buy an Xperia Tablet S.
In related news, Sony didn’t bother waiting for customers or repair shops to post pictures of a torn-apart tablet. The company posted photos and video showing the complete teardown process, giving you a brief glimpse of the system board, battery, and other internal components.
Sony does point out that ripping apart your own Xperia Tablet S will void your limited warranty, so this is a don’t-try-this-at-home kind of thing. But if you’ve been wondering where the 6000mAH battery or 8MP camera sensor hang out, now you know.
