We knew the Sony Tablet S was coming to the US in September, we just didn't expect the 16GB version to debut on the Home Shopping Network this weekend -- but there it is, ready to ship (according to HSN) and it can be yours for $599. That happens to be a cool $100 more expensive than Sony's pre-order for the 16GB version, which makes us think this just might be a slight snafu over at HSN -- either in the availability or the pricing, or both. We've shot an email to HSN asking for verification, but with it being the weekend we're not going to be optimistic about a reply. I'll update if I can.
If anyone out there gives this one a shot (heck, the payment plan does look a little enticing) drop us a line and tell us how it went.
Update: HSN took the time to get back in touch with us, and sure enough everything here is right. The Sony Tablet S is shipping now, and the price has been confirmed at $599.95 for the 16GB version.
