Sony cuts Tablet S to 400 dollars

Sony produced signs it was looking to clear stock of the Tablet S on Sunday as it cut prices across the board. Both the 16GB and 32GB versions of the Android tablet have dropped by $100 to start at $400 and $500 respectively. No indications exist yet that it's clearing stock.

The Tablet S was relatively well-received critically when it launched at the end of summer, but indications so far have been that Sony hasn't cut into the tablet market. Among non-iPad manufacturers, Sony doesn't register in the top five. Prices as high as the iPad's may have been a factor along with its late entry relative to LG, Samsung, and most other Android supporters.

No signs yet exist that the Tablet S will get a sequel early in 2012, although it will upgrade the existing version to Android 4.0 earlier in the year.
