Sony is launching it’s first Android Honeycomb device this Friday and customers who buy it at PC World and Curry’s flagship can get a free £400 TV.
The first 100 people who queue up at the Tottenham Court Road PC World store to buy the Sony Tablet S will be get a 32-inch Sony Bravia TV.
It’s certainly a fantastic incentive for customers – consider the tablet itself costs £399 for the 16GB WiFi version, with the 32Gb coming later for £479.
Mark Slater, Category Director at Dixons Retail. “We are really excited to be the first retailers on the high street to be selling the Sony Tablet S and are expecting it to be an instant hit with our customers.”
Considering the first Honeycomb tablet – the Motorola Xoom – was launched in January, Sony is a bit late to the tablet party. However the Japanese consumer electronics giant has already created something very different, most notably PlayStation Certification for playing PlayStation games.
The design is slightly different too – it’s slightly thicker at one edge, which Sony claims makes it more comfortable to hold and the 1280×800 HD screen is 9.4-inches.
Elsewhere the Tablet S is powered by a Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and includes a 5-megapixel primary camera and 3-megapixel rear camera, the Tablet S also includes Sony-specific features like Qriocity and Music Unlimited.
Doors open at 7am on Friday – will you be there to invest in the Sony Tablet S and to try and get a free Sony Bravia TV? Or are you waiting for the Sony Tablet P? Let us know via Facebook and Twitter.
