Sony S1 tablet now available in Canada

Canadians can now go forth and purchase the Sony S1 – a Wi-Fi only 9.4-inch Android 3.1 Honeycomb powered tablet that has a 1GHz dual-core processor. Sony took a different route with design, apparently the S1 stemmed from folding a piece of paper in half, which in turn made its “teardrop” shape. Unique and thankfully light. The S1 weighs in at 598 grams while competing tablets such as the iPad 2 is 601 grams. You can check out our full review of the S1 here  but other specs are that it has a 5 megapixel camera that captures 720p HD videos (no flash), a VGA front-facing camera and is the second Certified PlayStation mobile device (comes pre-loaded with Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes). The S1 comes in a 16GB version for $499.99 or a 32GB for $599.99.
