Sony S1 tablet to get UK pre-orders September 1

Sony S1 pre-orders begin in the UK on September 1

An earlier report about Sony shipping its S1 and S2 tablet in Europe has just got more traction thanks to a new leak. Documents have Sony Centre stores in the UK taking pre-orders for the S1 on, appropriately, September 1. Previously, the pre-orders were expected to begin late in August, but the early September date seen by This is my next still allows enough time to ship them later in the month.

The Android 3.0 tablet will sport a 9.4-inch display and focus on bringing content from Sony's Qriocity service. Sony Centre stores will be the top place to sell the tablet, as staffers are said to be getting detailed training on the devices. Despite the leak, prices still aren't confirmed.

A US release is expected at or near the same time, with four versions of the S1 recently going through FCC testing. Early indications put the S1's price tag at $599.
