Sony and Motorola cut prices on Android tablets

It's a new year and for two Android-powered tablets its also time for some new price points. Sony has just updated its online Sony Store web site with new prices for its two version of the Tablet S products. The 16 GB version of the Tablet S is now selling for $399.99 while the 32 GB version is selling for $499.99. That's a $100 price reduction for each of those Android powered tablets.

Meanwhile the Droid Xyboard tablet, made by Motorola and sold by Verizon Wireless, went on sale only a few weeks ago. Now it looks like the two versions of that tablet are getting their own price cuts, although not as drastic as the Sony tablets. Boy Genius Report states that the 8 inch version of the Xyboard now has a price of at $379.99 with the 10 inch model now priced at $479.99. That's a $50 reduction from their previous price points.

As the story points out, that $50 reduction is just for the folks who want a two year contract to get the Xyboards, which have 4G LTE support from Verizon. If you want to get them without the contract the prices for the tablets stay the same at $599.99 and $699.99, respectively.
