$110 in savings when you buy the Sony Xperia Tablet S directly from Sony
When Sony first announced the Xperia Tablet S, its slightly unreasonable pricing didn’t exactly help in stealing the limelight from its competitors such as Google, with the Nexus 10 making a firm stand in the tablet market. For $400, Sony offered the 16GB version which carries a 9.4-inch 1280×800 display, 1.4GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera and a 1MP front camera, powered by Android 4.0.
Recently however, Sony has revealed that you can grab its tablet for $50 less than its original price, providing you buy it from Sony directly. In addition to this, you can get their ‘casual cover’, usually $59.99, for absolutely nothing. That basically accumulates to $110 savings.
The Sony Xperia Tablet S got off to a rough start, after sales of the tablet were halted only a month after its release due to its supposedly water resistant chassis letting water seep into the tablet and damage it, which Sony revealed was a manufacturing defect originating from one of their plants in China. It is in no way however a bad tablet, boasting a powerful processor accompanied by a premium, stylish build, it’s something many may want to consider seriously if you’re in the market for a great tablet.
