Sony Launches the S1, S2 Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablets

Now, here’s something that can easily match up against the Apple iPad in terms of design and appearance. Sony Electronics has just unveiled not just one but two Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets – the S1 and S2. The Sony S1 Tablet has a 9.4-inch display while has 5.5-inch. The S1 looks like your typical tablet/slate with a rounded design on its back panel which could possibly serve as a viewing stand.  The S1 sports a rather slim and sleek form factor. Kinda reminds you of Sony’s VAIO  laptop series.

The Sony S2 is pretty interesting. It’s more like a huge smartphone but Sony is marketing it as a small tablet device. It has a dual-screen display that folds up like a smartphone with a slide-out keyboard. Only this time, it’s not a keyboard but another screen.

Both Android tablets are Playstation-certified. And both will be available by Fall 2011. No words on pricing yet. But don’t expect these devices to get a cheap price.

S2 has two 5.5-inch displays that can be folded for easy portability. In contrast to existing tablets, its unprecedented dual screen presentation and usability allows its displays to be combined and used as a large screen or for different functions such as playing video on one screen while showing control buttons on the other.
