Sony has slashed $100 off the price of its Sony Tablet S tablet computers in a move reminiscent of price cuts by other manufacturers of Android tablets.
From the official listing of the Sony Tablet S range, we see that the $100 price cut affects both the 16GB and the 32GB models of the device.
The move by Sony cutting the Sony Tablet S price follows similar moves by Android tablets manufacturers struggling with slow sales.
At the start of December, Best Buy revealed that it has sold out its current stock of PlayBook tablets proving that price cuts can accelerate the sales of tablets previously not being bought as fast as manufacturers wanted.
A similar phenomenon was seen when HP cut the price of its HP TouchPad tablet radically making it a sellout device.
The Sony Tablet S has a 9.4-inch screen (1280x800pixels resolution), a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB RAM, front and back cameras, a microSD slot and runs on Android 2.3 Honeycomb.
