Last Updated: June 30th, 2011

The tablet news just keeps on coming. In the past few days, we've already caught wind of two Honeycomb tablets from Lenovo, and now Sony is officially revealing the S1 and S2 tablets. The event is being live blogged by the Wall Street Journal here, but thanks to an official press release we have plenty of details on both the tablets. First up, the S1:

  • 9.4" display
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • "Off-center of gravity design" (check out this mockup for an idea of what this means)
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity

And the S2:

  • Two 5.5" 1024 x 480 screens
  • Android 3.0 Honeycomb
  • NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Wi-Fi and 3G/4G connectivity

Both tablets will also be joining the Xperia Play as PlayStation Certified devices, as they will be able to play PS1 games using on-screen controls. Also notable is Sony's custom UI that the tablets will share - it is said to resemble Windows Phone 7 because it uses tiles, but because it isn't exactly shown in-depth we'll have to wait and see. No pricing or exact availability details were announced, although both devices are expected to be on sale some time this fall.

      How come? So that there hopefully are less decision-makers and a more concise product?

      I think it seems like SE have gotten their act together with their latest phones, so I'm just curious about why you think it's good that only Sony are behind these.

    I actually think this thing with uneven weight distribution is a brilliant idea. Should be much easier to hold in one hand...

    Custom UI that looks like Windows.

    No...just no. If it's not rootable the things will fail directly on that.
