Sony cuts price of PlayStation tablet

Tablet S reduced by $100 three months after release

Sony has cut the price of its PlayStation branded Tablet S by $100 in the US.

The move comes only three months after the hardware launched, with the 32GB model now selling for $500 instead of $600, and the 16GB SKU down from $500 to $400.

The Android 3.0 powered device features a 9.4 inch touch screen and Nvidia Tegra 2 graphics chip. It is able to download and play games from the PlayStation Store with support from the PlayStation Suite SDK, also used for PlayStation Vita, Xperia Play and other Android devices.

Isn't this likely just down to that Tegra 3 powered tablets are launching soon..? I assume that Sony would also be looking to release with Tegra 3 at some point?
