A Sony Tablet is coming. This we already knew. We also know that Sony has bold plans with their Tablet. The Japanese electronics company is saying that they will reach the number 2 spot behind the iPad.

The Sony Tablet is supposed to be called Sony S1 PlayStation Tablet. I suppose that is still a working title. According to information obtained by Engadget the Sony PlayStation Tablet has a unique design that will set it apart from other Tablets.

Sony is using a case design that is similar to a rolled up magazine. The heavy components like the battery are placed in the rolled up side. This way the tablet feels lighter as the heavy stuff is inside the users hand.

Besides the unique design the Playstation Tablet will run Android HoneyComb and is based on Tegra 2 like the Xoom. Sony is making their own interface and as PlayStation is in the Tablet's name it is optimized for gaming.

If Sony is really going forward with this design is not certain. I also recommend that Sony focuses on the software and eco-system. A tablet is just what it is. The software experience and the content that is available on it make the difference.

We still have to wait until September to buy one. Pricing is supposed to be comparable to the Apple iPad.
