If you don’t already own a Sony Tablet S, now may be the time to buy one – if you purchase one between now and May 12, you will receive a $50 instant rebate and a free cradle accessory. That means the 16GB Sony Tablet S will be $349 and the 32GB will be $449. This is perfect for those of you looking for a fabulous gift for mom for Mother’s Day (hint hint).
For those of you that are already Sony Tablet S owners, the next time you connect to Wi-Fi, your Sony Tablet S should prompt you to do a system update – just click OK to download, and in a few minutes you should be ready to go on Android 4.0. We know you have been eagerly awaiting this update, so we can’t wait to hear what you think about it.
