Sony announce the new Android Experia Tablet S

Sony just announced the new Xperia Tablet S.

The Xperia Tablet S runs Android 4.0 on a Tegra 3 processor and also features a visual TV guide, which looks a lot like the Peel setup on some of the Galaxy Tabs we’ve seen.

In general, Android has been customized much like it is on Xperia phones – this is the first tablet with Xperia branding, and it fits into Sony’s lineup nicely.

The accessories lineup for the Xperia Tablet S is where it could gets interesting.

Sony’s offering a $99.99 Cover with Keyboard case that is the absolute spitting image of the Microsoft Surface’s Touch Cover — it’s light and thin, with a full keyboard stamped into the inside.

There’s also a $99.99 docking stand, which raises the tablet up on a TV-like pedestal.

The Xperia Tablet S will be out September 7th, and is available for pre-order already.

The device will come with 16, 32, or 64GB of storage, and will cost between $399 and $599.
