With the new year just beginning, Sony has decided to cut prices on its tablet and tablet accessories. The Sony Tablet S is now on sale for $399 for the 16 GB model and $499 for the 32 GB model. Other tablet and cell phone accessories may see a drop in price as well, as companies try to sell off stock for the new year.

"The Android-powered tablets launched in September, but the holidays are now behind us and Sony is probably looking to make its new tech a little more attractive to shoppers in the new year," according to Digital Trends.

The Tablet S has a 9.4 inch screen and runs on Honeycomb while also using a Tegra 2 CPU and 1 GB of memory, the website said. The company had also previously dropped the prices in December by $50, so there is no telling how long this price cut will last.

Sony is also offering 20 percent off many tablet and mobile phone accessories for the new year, which will last until January 14. People looking to get in on post-holiday deals should start looking around right now, when companies are trying to sell off excess inventory.
