If you’re thinking about scoring Sony’s new Xperia Tablet S and decided to pre-order via Sony Canada then you might be waiting a bit longer. The Android-powered ICS tablet was officially announced last week, Canadian pre-orders went live on Tuesday and gave an estimated shipping date of September 6th. Unfortunately, there has been a slight delay as the shipping date – still estimated – will now start on September 10th. Hopefully us Canadians will not have to wait much longer. Other counties, namely the UK, have started to receive theirs already. The 16GB Xperia Tablet S is $399.99, and the 32GB is available for $499.99.

    This sounds like a really nice tablet, but I’m confused about the name – wasn’t their old tablet also called Xperia S?

    Also, with so many cheap but excellent options (Nexus 7 and Playbooks at $160) I don’t see them selling many of these things.

    I don’t understand Sony. This tablet is too much high priced with no plus-value (at first glance). Also, the strange thing at the back of the tablet is kind of akward when you want to hold the tablet in portrait orientation.

    The first tablet was just called the tablet S if I remember correctly….

    And the “folded magazine” design on the back is actually designed to improve the one handed grip in portrait orientation… I always found it a lite funky in the horizontal two handed grip myself…

    I ain’t going to hold my breath for this one. I’ll wait for the surface before making my decision

    Waiting for the Sony tablet s to ship is a lot like being constipated. Just when you think today is the day it takes another week to get here and when it finally does arrive it’s a huge piece of s**t pain in your a*s that you regret forever. Pff, Sony tablet s, gimme a break…

    I don’t get how some people can buy a tablet without having played with it in person first. How do they know if it feels right in their hands? Or how responsive the software is? Or how the screen looks?
