Sony Tablet S up for pre-order, pricing revealed, Tablet P will have an LTE version, arriving in November
Sony has teased us for months with its tablets, first with videos and then showing some more of their specs, and now it has put the last piece in its tablet puzzle - pricing and availability. The more conventional looking of the two, the 9.4-inch Sony Tablet S running on Android 3.1 will be put up for pre-order today but will only arrive in the middle of September. It will come in two Wi-Fi-only flavors (no 3G or 4G connectivity), one with 16GB of internal memory priced at $499 and one with 32GB carrying a $599 price tag.

The Tablet S will add some flavor to the vanilla Honeycomb experience with UI touches from Sony and the addition of an infrared transmitter and DLNA compatibility for wirelessly sending images and video.

The more unconventional Sony Tablet P, coming to AT&T in both a Wi-Fi only and 4G LTE (woot!) variation has the form of a foldable clamshell, reminding us a glasses case, will arrive later with price only unveiled for Europe for the time being, where the tablet will cost a whopping $865 (599 euro) for the basic model. When you open that clamshell of a tablet, two 5.5-inch screen light up. This allows a lot of possibility for innovative user interaction and Sony promises to deliver in apps like the email client and browser.
