Like every other company on the block, Sony is ready to get into the tablet game. The Sony S1 was announced earlier this year, but a new report from Engadget says the tablet will now be dubbed the Tablet S. The Tablet S will be rocking a 9.4-inch touchscreen and Android, and will hit stores sometime in the first two weeks of September.

At launch, the Tablet S will be shipping with Android 3.1, but will be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich when it becomes available later this fall. Some other things to note about the device are a 5-megapixel shooter and 3-megapixel front-facing camera.  The price of the Tablet S is rumored to be $599, but that’s not confirmed yet. As for the S2, the S1’s successor, we’re not quite sure of it’s availability or if it will follow the same naming scheme.

Check out a hands-on of the device after the break:
