Sony will launch its first Android tablet – the Tablet S – in the UK this Friday, September 16. To make sure customers will show a high interest for the device, the company has announced that it would offer free 32-inch Sony BRAVIA TVs to the first 100 customers who are buying it at the Currys and PC World store on Tottenham Court Road (that’s in London). The store opens at 7 AM this Friday.
A similar offer will be available in Birmingham (at the Black Store, which opens at 9 AM) – however, only the first 10 Tablet S buyers will get a free Bravia TV there.
The 32-inch Bravia TV is worth £400 – as much as a 16GB Wi-Fi-only Tablet S.
Running Android Honeycomb, the Sony Tablet S features a 9.4 inch multi-touch display with 1280 x 800 pixels, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording (@30fps), and a VGA front-facing camera.
September 16 is also the date when the Tablet S will be released by Sony in the US. Unfortunately for customers Stateside, Sony didn’t announce any sweet offerings like the one in the UK there.
