Sony has confirmed the price and release details for its Sony Tablet S, which will hit stores in September starting at $499 as the first tablet able to legally download and play select games from the original PlayStation library. First revealed back in April, the Android-3.0-powered tablet sports a 9.4-inch touch display and an NVIDIA Tegra 2 graphics chip, as well as Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity options. The $499 model comes with 16 GB of built-in memory, while a $599 model comes packed with 32 GB. Sony didn't provide pricing details for the previously-revealed Sony Tablet P, a foldable tablet with two 5.5-inch touchscreens and 4G network capability set for a November release. Each screen can be controlled independently by Android apps, with one screen providing a PlayStation-style controller interface and the other showing gameplay, for example. The tablets will be Sony's second and third PlayStation-certified mobile devices, after the Spring launch of Sony Ericsson's button-sporting Xperia Play smartphone. Available downloadable PlayStation titles, including Jumping Flash and WipEout, have failed to attract a significant number of downloads on that device, according to publicly available Android Marketplace statistics. Both tablets are available for immediate pre-order ahead of their launches.
