Today’s Woot: Sony Tablet S and Dock for 259.99

on August 3, 2012 1:30 pm

We don’t share many Woot! sales as news, and I trust most of our readers know of Woot! but today’s sale caught my attention. They are selling the Sony Tablet s with 32GB and a dock for $259.99.  If you are looking for a quality ICS-Capable Android Tablet, it would be hard to go wrong with this one.

Specs:

  • 1 GHz nVIDIA Tegra 2
  • 1 GB Memory
  • 32 GB Storage
  • 9.4″ 1280 x 800 display
  • microUSB port (not for charging)
  • Full-size SDHC (up to 32GB)
  • 5.0 MP camera plus .3 MP front-facing camera
  • IR Remote capabilities

It also comes with the dock, and a power cable (you can use the cable with the dock or the tablet). Of course a key feature is the $260 price tag. This is a great deal on a tablet that is not the old. Here are some things to be aware of:

  • Newer tablets can come with Tegra 3 1.6 GHz processors
  • No HDMI out, even in the dock
  • Odd shape (it’s a wedge) I kind of like the shape.
  • Comes with Honeycomb, but you can upgrade to ICS right away.

So what do you think? I had one friend on G+ recommend spending another $150 for the ASUS TF300 (it has a Tegra 3), and of course I can’t help but covet the TF700 (add in high res screen, gorilla glass) for another $240. But at this price point, it is an attractive deal.

    I’d go for the Google Nexus 7. I’ve had four Android tablets now, and can attest that the Nexus 7 is the fastest, smoothest and best tablet on the market. Primarily because of the quad core processor, but also because of the lastest OS and the smaller form factor.
