This Hands-on Video of the Sony S2 Tablet is only 18 Seconds Long, But Still Has Us Wanting


We’ve seen it before, but never in true working form. It’s always been a simulation, a photo of the device, or a video of the device without anything touching it in any capacity. We’ve finally got at least one hands-on experience from someone on the interwebz, though. The video itself is 18 seconds and only shows off the user entering and leaving a couple of apps and closing/opening the tablets, but that’s the most we’ve gotten to date. You can read a rough translation of the full hands-on experience at golem.de. [via Electronista]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I like the idea, but the idea but the bezel in the middle of the two screen totally ruins the experience for me,as i would primarily be using it for magazines and textbooks. the only good use i can think of is as a dual screen paper back type thing

  2. Meh…

  3. It’s like a sexy Nintendo DS… *drool*

  4. both screens are touch right? none of this ds fail stuff plz

  5. Won’t sell.

  6. Can one of these large companies hire me?? I can totally design and release a product that is destined to fail and be a totally NICHE item that 10 people will buy. Who comes up with these things. I guess they saw how the Sprint Echo took off and is smashing sales numbers……

    1. I don’t think I’ll ever meet someone who owns an Echo.

  7. Can you really call it a “tablet”? I don’t think you can call something a Tablet just because it runs Honeycomb. I say it’s a gimmick and should be trashed. Sony is having a bad year !

  8. why is it that when you call it a dual screen “tablet” everyone is excited, but when you call it a dual screen “phone” everyone is skeptical???

  9. I do think there’s an appeal to something like this. It looks smaller than a Galaxy Tab when folded, and you can probably fit it into a pocket or a small bag. On top of that, you get decent hardware and software.

    It’s a similar case as my dual screen laptop (link: http://goo.gl/MJtTQ), since it offers as much pixels as most other 17″ laptops do in a ~12 inch size, and it’s certainly far more portable than any other laptop with the same amount of pixels.
