Sony’s Tablet S is launching tomorrow at 7.00am in the UK. Japanese giant has teamed up with the Currys/Dixons & PC World chain to start selling the device a couple of hours before everyone else. As a result, the Tottenham Court Road PC World store in London and the Black Store in Birmingham will both be opening early to offer the first PlayStation-certified tablet before everyone else. What’s more, the first 100 buyers at each location will get themselves a free BRAVIA TV, worth 400 GBP!
To be honest if there were not for the free Bravia TV part, I doubt anyone would show up that early for yet another Android tablet, no matter how cool it looks (or not, depending on your taste). However, that free TV will definitely help make some buzz for Sony’s baby.
Furthermore, from 5am, staff will be giving out drinks and mini-pastries to early-bird customers and a magician will be on hand to entertain and keep spirits high as they queue while the rest of the capital wakes up. Nice!
