Sony's Tablet S is here Sony has now shown off the specs of the Tablet S, set for release this month.
The tablet has a 9.4-inch screen, a "magazine" form factor, a Tegra 2 dual core processor, dual cameras and Honeycomb.

If you purchase the Wi-Fi-only version you get Honeycomb 3.1 (with Sony UI overlay) and if you buy the more expensive Wi-Fi/3G version you get 3.2 (with similar UI overlay).

The tablet comes with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, DLNA compatibility, an IR port (to use as universal remote), an SD card slot, Sony's Crackle and eReader apps and Sony's "QuickView" tech for faster browsing.

Finally, the tablet is the first to be Playstation Certified which means it can play PSX games from the PS Store.

The tablet costs $499 for the base 16GB/Wi-Fi model.

I'm sure Apple is just waiting to sue Sony now.
