Sony Xperia Tablet S to be available again in mid-November
posted by Alan F. / Oct 28, 2012, 12:33 AM
Now, the good news is that the first tablet to wear the Xperia brand will resume sales in the middle of November. The Sony Xperia Tablet S launched in the U.S. on September 7th with subsequent releases in Europe, Japan and other locations.
The Sony online store in the U.S. lists the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models of the Sony Xperia Tablet S as "Coming Soon" and is taking e-mail addresses for those interested in being notified when the tablet is available for purchase once again.

I have a dilemma on my hands now! I'm considering the Microsoft Surface with Windows RT vs. Sony Xperia Tablet S vs. Sony Vaio T Ultrabook! I'm just worried about the lack of apps available on RT - like is there even an official facebook app? And am also hoping it doesn't rely too heavily on Xbox games (I'm a PS3 man!) but for other things, such as Office 2013 and the USB port this tablet will be brilliant - but obviously still not as functional as the ultrabook, what do you guys think?

Depends on what you'll use it for: Sony Vaio T Ultrabook = for serious work (programming, macros, etc) Surface w/ RT and Sony Xperia S= for student/typical office work (Word, powerpoint, Excel, etc - without macros and plugins) I'll get an Android Tab over the Surface RT anyday. How I see it: Surface RT is targeted at companies looking to upgrade their PCs to W8,

Well, I'm a student, so it will mainly be for essays and note-taking, and portability is absolutely essential - hence why I was considering the Surface with Windows RT - I'm normally an Android guy too - I just really want the Microsoft Office programs and keyboard for a tablet.. However, I also need iTunes and other legacy programs for my other devices and leisure programs - and my laptop is starting to get a bit dated, hence the idea of the Ultrabook.. I already have the Sony Tablet S (though will sell it and replace if I get Xperia Tablet S or Surface) and know that android tablets cant offer the office suite that Microsoft can - not yet anyway.. Not sure what to do! Thanks for your reply by the way.

Sure there's a windows suite bundled with the Surface RT, but the office functions you can use are pretty much the same as the ones on Android (e.g. Polaris). I think what you're trying to say is you want to replace your old laptop AND your Tablet S AT THE SAME TIME with a single device. Well, if I were you I'd wait for the Surface Windows 8 Pro, that's the only thing (coming soon) that can replace both your tab and your laptop.

Yeah that maybe is what i'm trying to do without realising it haha! And yeah, that's what I wondered about MS office on the Surface RT.. it would allow me to do what I need to do I think, but realistically the only way i'm gonna be able to have portability and a replacement for both is through the surface pro or Vaio T.. and i'm swaying towards Vaio T.. thanks for your help though!
