If you’re living in Japan, the good news is that Sony’s first Android tablet offerings, the Tablet S and the Tablet P will start being offered in a 3G version come October 28th, and they will be available on Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo. This seems to be slightly ahead of Sony’s plans, which initially had the company launching 3G versions of their Android tablet offerings some time in November, but we guess this isn’t a bad thing.
According to the Google translation, in order to encourage adoption of Sony’s offerings, users who purchase either the 3G versions of the Tablet S or Tablet P will be receiving ¥1,040 (~$14) discount on their data plan for the first six months. Apart from the addition of 3G connectivity, everything else about the tablet appears to remain the same. Unfortunately no word from Sony on when they will be bringing this 3G goodness over to the states or the rest of the world.
