Sony released today that they will have 2 new Honeycomb tablets this year. The Sony tablets will be running Android’s 3.0, Honeycomb, operating system and have been dubbed the S1 & S2. Neither tablet has been named the “Playstation Tablet”, but Sony is already integrating several of their other service they already offer like the Qriocity music and video and the current e-Reader content available to the Sony Readers, so this may be something integrated into the tablets before they are released.
The S1 will have DNLA support along with infrared technology giving it the enhanced capabilities controlling Bravia’s TVs and Blu-Ray players which is an awesome added bonus. The S1 will be a 9.1 inch screen and the off-center gravity build for a much lighter feel making it easier to hold for long periods of Time. Both of the Tablets will be equipped with Android’s 3.0 Honycomb OS at launch and will feature 3G/4G/Wi-Fi radios so you will always have data. The biggest difference in the 2 tablets is that the S2 will have a clamshell form factor with dual 5.5″ screens that can be laid flat for one screen. This gives the S2 so much more functionality over the simple all touch screen displays we currently have available.
There hasn’t been a release date or price announced yet but you can expect to see these tablets sometime this fall, just in time for the Holidays!
