Available through Sony Centres, "selected retailers" and via sony.com.au, the Tablet S also comes in a 32GB variant costing AU$689. Both variants pack dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processors, 1GB RAM and 9.4-inch displays. There is no 3G connectivity available, though; both models will connect to the internet via Wi-Fi only.

In an attempt to differentiate itself from the numerous other Android tablets on the market, Sony is backing itself on a few key multimedia features. The Tablet S is the first PlayStation-certified tablet, giving owners access to exclusive PlayStation gaming content, plus the integration of DLNA media-sharing services allows users to "throw" content from the tablet to a compatible device (like a PlayStation 3) with a drag-and-drop touchscreen gesture.

Sony first unveiled the Tablet S back in April, before putting it into the hands of journalists in July at the IFA tech trade show in Berlin. The S was announced alongside a dual-screen model, Tablet P, but there is no indication as to when Sony will put the P into stores at this time.
