Sony Tablet S Is Now Cheaper By $100
Written under: Technology
Sony wants to be more competitive in today’s tablet market and they are doing that by reducing the price of all Tablet S models by $100. Now, the 16GB and 32GB models are at $500 and $600, respectively.
But the problem now is, even with the price reduction, they are still at the same level as the iPad and many consumers will certainly choose the more popular Apple gadget, if they cost the same.
The Sony Tablet S is an Android tablet, upgradeable to the Ice Cream Sandwich OS, with a 9.4-inch display and an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. One of the selling points of the device is the presence of an infrared which allows it to become a remote control for other Sony appliances.
Another reason why a person would buy a Sony Tablet is perhaps because it will have future compatibility with the Playstation via a Playstation Suite software.
Will the price cut be enough to boost sales for Sony? We’ll find out.
