Sony's Tablet S device is set to see a wider release this Thursday, with high street retailer Carphone Warehouse set to stock the device in its stores and online from the 15th of December.
Three flavours of the device will arrive on Thursday, with a Wi-Fi only version available as well as a 3G-enabled 16GB model for sale, a 32GB is available, but without any 3G capabilities.
In terms of vital statistics, the Sony Tablet S is far more traditional than its clamshell Tablet P counterpart with a 9.4-inch LED touch display and dual-core processor, running on the 'Gingerbread' iteration of Google's Android operating system.
In terms of differentiators, much is being made of the Tablet S' ability to wirelessly connect to other Sony media devices from TVs to home theatres, whilst Playstation Certification means that a suite of classic console titles - from Cool Boarders to Crash Bandicoot - will be playable on the device.
The entry level model consisting of (expandable) 16GB memory and Wi-Fi connectivity retails for £349, whilst the 3G Tablet S costs £449.99. Those opting for a 32GB Wi-Fi only edition will need to shell out £429.
There is currently no word on pay monthly contract pricing.
