Sony announces two Android tablets
      #40530 - 04/26/11 01:47 PM

Sony's Global press site let loose with the announcement of two Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets, one with a mostly traditional 9.4" slate design, and another that has a pair of 5.5" displays that opens and closes like a book. The two products don't yet have final names and are going by S1 and S2, and should be available this fall. Sony, what's taking so long?

Both tablets with act as AV remotes with Sony Bravia home theatre components and TVs, have Qriocity music and video services and run the Playstation Suite. They'll run on the usual dual core Tegra 2 CPUs with WiFi and available 3G/4G. The dual screen model with have two 5.5", 1024 x 480 displays.

According to Sony, "with its off-center of gravity form factor, the 9.4-inch S1 offers stability and a sense of lightness, offering comfortable use for hours.
The dual screen S2 comes with two 5.5-inch displays which can be used together as one large screen to browse websites and more. They can also be used for different functions as users can watch a video on one screen and input commands on the other, or check email on one screen and use the other as a soft keyboard." Since the Kyocera Echo and Acer Iconia 6120 dual screen Android phone and Windows notebook haven't taken the world by storm, it remains to see if Sony can get it right and captivate the hungry tech masses.

Full press release here.
