While Sony broke the news of its upcoming S1 and S2 tablets back in April, there has been little info surrounding the pair since then - until today, that is. German blog Golem got some hands on action with the duo, and even took the time to grab a really quick video of the S2. Before I go any further, have a look:

As anticlimactic as that is, it does give a better idea of the form factor of this dual-screened oddity. Golem compared the feel to a Nintendo DS, and noted that it includes an obvious Playstation logo, suggesting that this device is designed for mobile gaming.

While they didn't take a video of the S1, it was noted that they were able to play Crash Bandicoot on the device, and it worked "surprisingly well."


Both devices are said to be running a heavily modified version of Honeycomb, but Sony wouldn't allow any pictures of the UI to escape just yet.

    Not impressed? Trying to figure out how any judgement can be made from 18 sec. Am I impressed? No. Am I not impressed? No.

    What he said. From the title it seems as if Android Police got a hands on and was not impressed. You can't draw such conclusions from a few seconds of video. OMG he Launched the web browser, I'm not impressed.

    The clam shell design is just terrible. This isn't 1999 or a Nintendo DS. Who greenlit that curve design?! Yikes. Not to mention it will be way overpriced with Sony tax.

    personally i cant wait for the s2, makes it easy to throw in a bag if the screen is portected all the time... can open sideways kinda like a book.. and cool gaming interfaces. cause lets admit it.. the games on the market are about all the creativity you can come up with for a flat screen. now here is something new for developers to use to make small time waister games with
