Sony S1 tablet up for grabs from 1 September

Pre-orders set to open in just six weeks

No word on when clamshell S2 tab will be made available.

Jonesing for a Sony S1 tablet? Well the wait is almost over. The gadget sleuths at This Is My Next have spied official docs which show the slick Honeycomb slate will be up for pre-order from 1 September.

Punters after Sony’s first foray into the tablet space will have to head to their local Sony Centre to ensure they get one first. Sadly, there’s still no news on just how much this slab of killer tech will actually cost.

There’s no news either on when the clamshell S2 tablet will be hitting shelves, although hopefully it won’t be too far behind its regular-shaped sibling slate.
