Just a few moments ago Sony held a press event in Tokyo where they announced a pair of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets. What’s the difference between these and the slew of Honeycomb tablets hitting the market? Pure. Unadulterated. Sex appeal.
The first is the Sony S1. Its a 9.4 inch tablet powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 processor and what Sony is calling “Quick and Smooth” touch panel UI and a “Swift” web browser. The design of the tablet actually reminds me a lot of this Targus laptop cooler I purchased from Sam’s Club the other day. Only – sexier.
The second tablet shown was their S2. Its a smaller, dual-screened, clam shell design with each of it’s screens measuring 5.5 inches and a resolution of 1,024 x 480. It is also powered by a Tegra 2 processor. Looks like Kyocera might have been onto something after all with their dual-screened Echo handset. They can officially say, “We did it first.”
Both tablets feature front and rear facing cameras, Playstation certification, connectivity to current Sony products as well as WiFi and 3G/4G connectivity. Sony’s new tablets will be available worldwide this fall. You may now change your pants.
