Exclusive: Sony to launch tablet in time for Christmas

Sony confirms Tablet S and Tablet P follow-up is coming

Sony has confirmed that it will launch a tablet by the end of the year.

The technology giant isn't the most well-known tablet maker but after speaking to various Sony representatives this week, a follow-up to the current tablets in on the cards. The Tablet P and Tablet S both launched last year and we've seen nothing from Sony since. See alsoGroup test: What's the best tablet PC?

Details are limited but one spokesperson told PC Advisor they were sure we would be taking a look at a new device at some point over the next few months which will tip up before Christmas.

Both the Tablet S and Tablet P run on Google's Android operating system but it is unclear whether the mystery tablet will continue this trend or offer something different like Windows 8. In our opinion it is possible Sony will make different models offering Windows 8 and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Windows 8 will launch by the end of October and after all, just about every other vendor is fighting to get a Windows 8 tablet out first. We'd like to see a new tablet or two from Sony so stay tuned for further details.

Another firm looking to launch a new tablet is HTC. The smartphone maker told PC Advisor it will launch a follow-up to the Flyer in the UK.
