Sony Xperia tablet to go on sale in September 2012

The PlayStation-certified device will come with a 9.4-inch display, Tegra 3 chip and dual cameras

Yesterday, an XDA-Developers forum user, who claims to be working at Sony, leaked some documents that indicate the Japanese tech manufacturer will soon debut a new Xperia tablet. Apparently, the slate computer will be available on September 3rd (2012) in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants, priced at $399.99, $499.99 and $599.99, respectively.

The potential successor to the Tablet S model will presumably be equipped with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 (T30) system on a chip that packs four processing cores clocked at 1.3 – 1.5GHz. In addition, Sony’s upcoming mobile device will have a 9.4-inch touchscreen panel of 1280-by-800 pixels native resolution.

Reportedly, the Xperia slate PC is based on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and houses 3G, Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 radios. Moreover, users will be provided with two integrated cameras (1MP front-facing / 8MP rear-facing) and a built-in GPS receiver complemented by Ambient, Gyro, Compass and Accelerometer sensors. Other features supposedly include an ST port, an SD card reader slot and mic/headphone out.

Measuring just 8.8mm at its thickest point and weighing 570grams, the forthcoming Xperia tablet comes with a 6,000mAh battery that has an autonomy period of up to 10 hours (Wi-Fi browsing). Furthermore, according to a report from Liliputing, this portable device is (Google and) PlayStation-certified, which would enable consumers to download and enjoy PlayStation directly on the slate PC.
