From ArsTechnica:

Sony President and CEO Kaz Hirai took the stage at the IFA electronics show in Germany today to talk about the company's upcoming products—in addition to a new camera, a 4K TV, and new Windows 8 VAIO PCs (all of which we'll talk about in separate articles later today), the company also announced a new Android tablet and a handful of new Xperia smartphones that will all release between now and the end of the year.

First up is the Xperia Tablet S, a 9.4" Android tablet with a 1280x800 screen; a 1.4GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor; 1GB of RAM; 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of storage; and an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1-megapixel front camera. Sony's marketing plays up both the tablet's "splash-proof enclosure" that will protect it from water while being used in the kitchen, and the included IR blaster that you can use to control your TV and other set-top boxes—a similar feature was also included in Samsung's recent Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet, among others. Numerous accessories are also available, including stands, covers, keyboards, and covers with keyboards. The Xperia Tablet S will be available on September 7 at a starting price of $400 for the 16GB model, $500 for the 32GB model, or $600 for the 64GB model.
