According to a report from Nikkei, which cites Sony’s chief executive Sir Howard Stringer, Sony is pushing to release their PlayStation certified “S1″ tablet by the end of summer, in the US first.
This information, along with a couple other juicy tidbits on Apple’s supply chain, was dropped by Stringer in an interview with Walt Mossberg. The validity of a summer release is totally up in the air, but not out of the realm of possibility. Earlier rumors on the uniquely shaped S1 pointed towards a September release, so the date actually matches up quite nicely. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any more information on the tablet as it begins to leak out.
