Sony Tablets Get Detailed

We have already talked a bit about the Sony S1 and S2 tablets that surfaced a while back. Today the tablets have gone official, Sony has even offered up real pics of the devices, and they look really cool. The tablets are still called the S1 and the S2 and they have the design that we saw in the line art when they first surfaced.

"'Sony Tablet' delivers an entertainment experience where users can enjoy cloud-based services on-the-go at any time. We're aiming to create a new lifestyle by integrating consumer hardware, including 'Sony Tablet' with content and network," said Kunimasa Suzuki, Corporate Executive, SVP, and Deputy President of Consumer Products & Services Group.

Sony does point out that for right now the S1 and S2 monikers are still code name so when they hit the market expect different names. I am sure they will be in the Vaio line. The S1 is a 9.4-inch screen tablet with an off center design that acts as a grip and should prop the screen up a bit when laid on a flat surface.

The S2 tablet is a device that is roughly the same size, but it has a pair of 5.5-inch screens on it and folds for more portability. It reminds me of that little Vaio netbook from CES a few years back. Both of the tablets run Android 3.0. The tablet will both have WiFi and 3G/4G capability and the user will be able to surf the web and check email among other things.

"Android 3.0 is a new version of the Android platform with a new holographic user interface that is designed from the ground up for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. I'm excited about "Sony Tablet" as it will further spur the development of applications and network offerings which users are looking for," said Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President, Mobile, Google Inc.

Sony says that both of the tablets will hit the market this fall. That's not too far away so we should see the tablets in only a few months time. I wonder if the Sony offerings will be competitively priced, Sony tends to place more of a premium on its gear than many consumers are willing to pay.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
