Sony’s eagerly awaited first foray into the tablet market is to see this Friday’s Sony Tablet S release date give eager customers the chance to pair their new Android tablet with a free £400 TV.

Retailers Currys and PC World have announced that the first 100 customers queuing to snap up the Sony Tablet S at their flagship London Tottenham Court Road outlet will each walk away with a free 32-inch Sony Bravia TV worth £400.

The world’s first PlayStation certified tablet the Sony Tablet S was officially unveiled at IFA 2011 late last month and is set to touch down with a 9.4-inch touchscreen display, 1GB of RAM and a dual-core processor.

Lining up at less than 600g in weight the Sony Tablet S will be available from launch with a 16GB Wi-Fi model priced at £399. A 32GB Wi-Fi + 3G offering is to land at £499.

“We are expecting a big buzz outside our Tottenham Court Road store on Friday,” said 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.”

Currys and PC World on Tottenham Court Road will be opening doors at 7am for those eager to forgo the iPad route and plump for Sony’s first Android tablet.
