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 16GB model of the Sony Tablet S has been lowered to a price of $400 from the previous $500 while the 32GB model has been reduced to $500 from the previous $600.

The Sony Tablet S range was unveiled last April and released in Japan by Sony in September.

The move by Sony cutting the Sony Tablet S price follows similar moves by Android tablets manufacturers struggling with slow sales.

In September, Best Buy cut the price of the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet. In November, Staples started selling a $199 PlayBook.

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.
