Sony reveals Android-Honeycomb tablets

Sony has revealed two tablet models following in the footsteps of Samsung and Motorola who are looking to catch up with Apple’s iPad that was released last year. Sony’s S1 tablet will feature a 9.4-inch LCD (just slightly smaller than the iPad display at 9.7-inches). Their S2 model is a bit more interesting with its laptop-type construction and dual 5.5-inch displays. The tablets will run on Android 3.0 with the Honeycomb version which supports the larger screens used by tablets.

Is Sony a year too late? It’s never too late but catching up to Samsung and Motorola will take some time…catching up to Apple will take even more time. The tablets are expected to ship late 2011. No pricing was revealed.

  1. They are very nice sleek tablets, sort of what you expect from Sony. S2 is interesting but not sure on how practical it will be as surely the dual screen approach will compromise weight to support the screen and probably performance too. But I think the issue for any tablets going in the market these days will be the OS.
