Sony is betting big on Android in its mobile devices this year, and will reportedly use Google's platform in a new tablet computer that will ship with the company's new Qricoity media service.
Sony CEO Howard Stringer has gone on the record with the Nikkei newspaper saying that a Sony tablet running Android Honeycomb will be out in the US by the end of the (northern hemisphere) summer. The tablet, which could sport a 9.4-inch display, will be PlayStation certified, like the Xperia Play, and will come with Sony's new Qriocity music and movie service pre-installed.
Stringer said that the US will be the first country that Sony will aim to release a tablet, though if the company aims to be the world's number two tablet maker by 2012, it will have to ship some our way very soon after.
