Japanese website Nikkei has quoted Sony’s Sir Howard Stringer as saying that the company will bow its first Honeycomb tablet by the end of the summer. Further, the United States will be among the first to offer the device once hit lands. As some of you may recall, the company is said to be prepping at least two tablets expected to arrive by the end of the year. While Nikke’s timing doesn’t match up very well, it at least confirms the existence of at least one of these tablets. According to Engadget, AV Watch is advising that the end of the year still looks right. This doesn’t rule out a summer launch for US with Japan getting it later in the year. Either way, we’re stoked at the prospect of these devices.
