Do you remember this Sony tablet? I do, but it’s been way too long since I’ve reported on it. In fact, our last report on the Sony Tablet P was a month ago when it was confirmed that the device will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich.
One of the reasons I’ve had a long drought from Tablet P-reporting is due to the fact that it hasn’t been available in the US. It was released in the UK in November, but until today, US citizens have only been able to lust over the dual 5.5-inch display tablet.
That wait is over, though. AT&T and Sony today announced that the Tablet P will be released for AT&T’s network on March 4th for $399.99 on-contract. That might seem a little steep, but there are other cellular network-capable tablets that are selling for simply outrageous prices. $399.99 isn’t too bad for an on-contract price, especially when you consider that you’ll be able to connect to AT&T’s 4G network. Of course, if you’re not interested in a contract, don’t worry: the carrier will let them go for $549.99. If you choose the latter method of purchasing, you’ll be able to keep a Lincoln ($5) in your wallet per month should you still want a data plan.
I’m very intrigued by the Tablet P. I’ll have to go play with one at some point in the next week to see if Sony deserves my money, though. Are you planning on getting one?[The Verge]
