Assuming that the laws of modern day economics didn’t completely change over with the New Year, we can only assume that Sony’s decision to cut $100 off the price of its Tablet S is something of a bad sign for market demand. We just got word that the 16GB model can now be had for a mere $400, or you can step up to the 32GB edition for $500. Finding stock also doesn’t seem to be an issue.
For those who go back to school the day after Labor Day, Sony managed to make its Tablet S available via pre-order on the final day of summer break, though don't expect any back-to-school discounts. The 16GB Wi-Fi model carries the now traditional $500 price tag, and you can add another C-note if you want the 32GB model.
