We haven't heard anything in a bit about Sony's upcoming Android Tablets, but now some more info officially comes out of Sony. Sony just issued a press release regarding the S2 codenamed tablet. It looks like the tab will come coming to AT&T enabled on their HSPA+ service. Strangely, for an official press release, very little info was offered. We still don't have an idea of a release date or pricing. I guess something is better than nothing, and this tidbit of news should make AT&T users happy. Here's the full presser below:
