After almost every single brand out there had come out with an Apple iPad competitor, it was strange for one of the most innovative brands in the area of consumer electronics to be mum on the issue of tablets- Sony. There were murmurs of what the Japanese giant would be launching, with online blogs have few leaked details of a dual-screen tablet, while others were talking about a larger, Samsung Galaxy-esque 10 inch model. Well, finally it has been revealed that BOTH will be manufactured by Sony, and I for one can't WAIT to see what the finished product looks like!
In the meantime, here are some pictures and a short video of the tablets, called the S1 and the S2. They run 3.0, which means they'll have the most up-to-date Android Honeycomb goodness installed. The S1 is a 9.4 inch media tablet with both, front and rear facing cameras and a curved wrap design that looks something like a folded magazine. The second, the S2 is the one that has the dual screens that each measure 5.5 inches. Both the S1 and S2 are "PlayStation Certified" and are WiFi and 3G/4G compatible.
I will give you more details about the tablets as and when I get them, but in the meantime here is the launch video that gives you an idea of all the sexiness Sony is looking to offer!-
