17 Sony Xperia TabletIt looks like Sony has got another tablet up its sleeve. According to German news site, Mobiflip, Sony is going to be releasing a successor to its Tablet S and it’s currently being referred to as the Xperia Sony Tablet. It looks like the new tablet will still feature the unique curved edge of the Tablet S but at the same time shaving off a couple of centimeters to provide a slimmer profile and lighter weight.

The Xperia Tablet is said to feature NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (hopefully Jelly Bean won’t be too far away), 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, and 3G connectivity. The tablet will have a 9.4″ (1280 x 800) display, a 1-megapixel front camera, an 8-megapixel rear camera and it’s said to pack a 6,000mAh battery which should provide up to 10 hours of WiFi browsing.

Tentative suggested retail prices place the tablet at $449.99 for the 16GB, $549.99 for the 32GB, and $649.99 for the 64GB version – though these prices probably aren’t final and are subject to change. Expect the tablet to be announced at Sony’s IFA press event next month.
