The Android 3.1 Honeycomb powered Sony S1 tablet was just announced last week and will be coming to Canada. At the recent press event Sony informed us that the release date was set for September 16th, however taking a look at both Best Buy and Future Shop sites it shows the “Estimated release date: 09/23/2011”, which is 1-week later. The price points are the same at $499.99 for the 16GB version and $599.99 for the 32GB version. In addition, if you’re the eager type you can go forth and pre-order this 9.4-inch tablet at both big box retailers.
We’ll have our full S1 review up shortly but you can check out this quick hands-on video here.
