Look who’s coming late into the Android tablet party? It’s none other than Sony Electronics which just officially launched two of their upcoming tablet devices running Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS. The Sony Ericsson S1 and S2 Android tablets are scheduled for a fall 2001 release and it looks like Sony is going to create some stir as both tablets sport a nice, sleek form factor and design. The first of these tablets is the S1 which actually looks like your usual Android tablets with 9.4-inch screen display and all the bells and the whistles including Tegra 2 SoC, touch panel UI with Swift web browser and an integrated infrared which can be used to control Sony-compatible home electronic products. It also has the usual front- and rear-facing cameras. Design-wise – the S1 is ultra-thin from the bottom to the upper portion of the back where there is a curvature which will probably serve as a viewing stand. The S2 Android 3.0 tablet on the other hand is a clamshell device with dual-screen measuring 5.5-inch with 1024×480 pixel displays. It is also loaded with Tegra 2 SoC and camera. Both S1 and S2 tablets are Playstation Certified and will have Wi-Fi and 3g/4G connectivity. Now words on pricing yet but these Android tablets will be released sometime this fall. via PR Newswire
