#CatchTheTablet Campaign Launched by Sony

Back in April we brought you news that Sony was reportedly working on two “PlayStation” tablets, the S1 and S2. Well after more details were leaked last month Sony is launching a campaign that will allow fans of the tablets to win one!

Starting today, Sony will be traveling to NYC, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago and LA, leaving clues along the way about its whereabouts on Twitter and Facebook. Users will have to follow the clues, snap pictures of the new Sony Tablet, tweet them to enter the contest. For folks in areas that Sony doesn’t visit, they’ll be able to enter a contest via Facebook to win one of the 50 tablets they have up for grabs.

Below you’ll find the specs of said tablets. For more information, visit Sony’s #CatchTheTablet Facebook page.
