Default Sony announces S1 and S2 Honeycomb tablets

http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/26/s...ycomb-tablets/

Live Blog: http://blogs.wsj.com/japanrealtime/2...trategy-event/

Looks like Fall 2011. Interesting, in that this is from Sony and not Sony Erricson.

Quote:
The first is the 9.4-inch S1 media tablet (aka, Qriocity focus) with a curved top much like a folded magazine and both front- and rear-facing cameras. The S1 features a Tegra 2 SoC and "Quick and Smooth" touch panel UI with "Swift" web browser. It can also be used as a remote control for Sony gear. Oh, and both tablets are PlayStation Certified.

The second is the dual-screen S2 clamshell with its pair of 5.5-inch 1,024 x 480 pixel displays, Tegra 2 SoC, and cameras.

Interesting, being PlayStation Certified could be very cool.

Also I'm glad Sony Ericsson had nothing to do with this, never been impressed by them really.

If they are waiting till Fall why are they not going to push Tegra 3? God knows being Sony they will charge enough for it to be in the range those tabs will cost.

But overall, I like the idea and it could be cool.

FF3 just came out for iOS at $15.99/$16.99. even sony is selling games in the app store.

as far as tegra 3 isn't it supposed to be only engineering samples later this year? that means 6-12 months to develop working devices for it

Nvidia showed off Tegra 3 back in Jan or Feb. Said it'll be in tablets by August and phones in December.

I'm not sure that a dual screen device counts as a 'tablet'.
