Sony Tablet S up for UK pre-order

Tablet will arrive on September 16th

TechRadar rating:

4.5 stars

The best phone of 2011 so far, and it's not even dual core. Sony Ericsson has finally created the standout smartphone it's been after for so many years.

Like:

Astonishingly thin body; Attractive user interface tweaks; Nice customisable floating dock; Single-core processor handles most tasks well; Decent battery life; Stunning screen;

Dislike:

Small, fiddly power and volume buttons; Timescape widget is rather ugly; Text entry system is a bit last generation; Only five home screens;

The long-awaited Sony Tablet S is now available for pre-order in the UK.

Dixons is the first UK retailer first to offer pre-sales for the Android Honeycomb 3.1 tablet, which is set for release on September 16th.

The Tablet S, which boasts an innovative curved back to make use on a flat surface a little easier, will set you back £399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model, which matches the cost of the cheapest Apple iPad.

For an extra hundred notes, you can get double the storage and 3G capabilities.

PlayStation certified

The Sony Tablet S boasts a 9.4-inch screen, a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM and comes fully PlayStation certified.

Sony's other tablet, the dual-touchscreen, clamshell Tablet P is also available to pre-order on the Sony website for £499, with Wi-Fi, 3G and 4GB of storage.

With Samsung's Galaxy Tab range of tablets under siege from Apple's legal eagles, can Sony emerge as the lead contender to the iPad despite joining the tablet party later than everyone else?
