Sony Tablet S and Tablet P launching October 28th in Japan
The launch of the first two Sony tablets has been quite staggered ever since their reveal earlier this year. While the 9.4-inch Tablet S has been available in the U.S. ever since mid September, its dual-screen Tablet P sibling has yet to officially launch stateside.
Now, it appears that the duo of tablets will finally be making their way simultaneously to their home country by the end of this month, complete with 3G connectivity. According to DeviceMag, 3G models of the Tablet P and Tablet S are set for an October 28th launch in Japan, courtesy of Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo. So far, only the WiFi-enabled Tablet S has been available to customers in Japan.
If the launch follows through, Japan would be one of the first markets to get their hands on the Tablet P. As of this writing, the unique dual-screen tablet is still under pre-order status on both the U.K. and U.S. Sony online stores. However, the impending worldwide November launch now seems more than likely if Japan will be receiving theirs before Halloween.
The Tablet S and Tablet P represent Sony’s first major foray into the tablet market. While both tablets each include a Tegra 2 APU at their respective cores, the unique chassis designs allow Sony to standout from the current inundation of similar and lookalike Android tablets.
