Sony Xperia Tablet S gets local pricing

Late last week, Sony Philippines sent us their latest Android tablet — the Xperia Tablet S. I promptly asked for the suggested retail price and local availability.

The Xperia Tablet S is the 2nd generation Android tablet from Sony. It sports the same deign but much thinner and lighter.

The Xperia Tablet S is also the predecessor of the recently announced Xperia Tablet Z.

Sony Xperia Tablet S specs:
9.4-inch LCD @ 1280×800 pixels
NVidia Tegra 3 1.4GHz quad-core processor
16GB, 32GB, 64GB internal storage
up to 32GB via mSD card
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0
IR remote
8MP rear camera
1MP front-facing camera
Android 4.0 ICS

Suggested retail price for the 16GB model is Php23,999 while the 32GB model is Php28,999. As for availability, it was supposed to be back in last week of December but was delayed. New dates have been set but not yet finalized. Will post our unboxing photos tomorrow and share some first impressions.

    sa tablet market, its ipad vs all of them.

    so i think they should definitely make the price cheaper. why buy that one if makaka bili nako nyan ng ipad 4?

    just my thoughts po Sony. :D

    For the price, at least it should have a 2GB RAM.

    Isn’t too late for sony to release that?

    Sony is cheating its customers when they release a new phone with old android version. Even if specs-wise, their gadget is already compatible with newest android release.

    i’ll hold out on buying this until maging available (or free sana) yung capacitive keyboard cover thing…

    it’s available now in Sony Center at the New Glorietta.

      Tama! last December, naghahanap ako ng Xperia TX sa mga mall(although meron sa online stores, pero mas gusto ko sa local market), January 2013 pa raw lalabas. Eto, February na, wala pa. So ‘yung Z at ZL, mid-2013 pa nila ilalabas at high price?

    I saw this one personally at Sony Store SM Cebu.. it’s really great and feel elegant because of half glass at the back.. but the problem is only 1 GB RAM which is suppose to be this model only for last year.. so Kung sumabay ito sa iPad 3 at Samsung Tab. cgro ito ang mas mabenta.. too bad too late nila ni release d2 sa Pinas obsolete na tuloy. better luck next time Sony…!

  12. Donx2 says:

    Hintayin nyo na lang guys yung xperia tablet Z, Mas ok ang specs and mas manipis pa.

  13. Justin says:

    P29k for an ICS tablet? No LTE? 3G? NFC? Nice! :)

    Tried a demo unit of this tablet in a Sony store. The screen resolution is terrible. At that price, one can buy an iPad with retina display.

    Sony products are just to overpriced. As usual.
