Things seems to be slowly falling into place as far as Sony’s rumored tablet is concerned. As a first step, Sony has confirmed the existence of such a tablet in their future product pipeline. The confirmation comes from none other than the Chief Executive Officer Howard Stringer, who revealed while speaking to the Nikkei newspaper that the tablet running Honeycomb would be ready for launch towards the end of summer. The CEO also announced the Sony tablet will first land in the United States. Nothing surprising here as the US is the biggest tablet market to date.
In the mean time, Sony has spiced things up a bit by revealing the tablet PC would make its domestic debut before the year end. Sure this last bit would add some confusion with the expected time line, though at least all of this confirms beyond a doubt that Sony will also have a contender in the mega tablet battle. Going by their reputation, the Sony tablet will also be one hell of a device. That’s almost a certainty.
Sony has for quite some time now been rumored to be developing a tablet device with a Sony Ericsson tablet also making it to the public domain at the MCW event. In fact, rumors of a Sony Android tablet have been doing the rounds as far back as August last year.
