The Sony S1 and S2 Honeycomb tablets are something of a curiosity at the moment. Apart from some preliminary specs and some press handout pictures, not much is known about the two tablets that marks Sony’s first attempt at grabbing a piece of the tablet market pie.
While the tablet is set to launch sometime in September, Sony has started releasing a series of teaser videos to showcase some of the capabilities of the Honeycomb pair.
Although there’s a lot to look at in the videos, there’s nothing really telling when it comes to exposing details on the S1 and S2 tablets. There’s five videos in the series (excluding the prologue), guess we’ll have to wait just a little bit more to see if this Sony duo has what it takes to duke it out with the iPad 2 and the much-hyped Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
There’s a very likely chance that these two tablets will make here. Question now is, will you wait a little longer to see what the Sony tablets have to offer or pounce on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 as soon as its launched here?
Check out parts one to three of the Sony “Two will” teaser video series for the S1 and S1 tablets after the jump. Tell us what you see.
Sony today announced its foray into the hotly contested tablet market with two Honeycomb devices codenamed S1 and S2.
Sony positions the 9.4-inch S1 as a device that’s “optimized for rich media entertainment,” while the dual 5.5-inch screen S2 is designed to be “ideal for mobile communication and entertainment.”.
S1 has a 9.4-inch display for enjoying the web and rich content on a large screen. Its off-center of gravity design realizes stability and ease of grip as well as a sense of stability and lightness, offering comfortable use for hours.
S2 has two 5.5-inch displays that can be folded for easy portability. In contrast to existing tablets, its unprecedented dual screen presentation and usability allows its displays to be combined and used as a large screen or for different functions such as playing video on one screen while showing control buttons on the other.
The design of the S1 is typical Sony minimalist and we like that Sony designer have opted to stay away from a more conventional slab form factor to this “folded” form factor which is both refreshing and unique.
Both the S1 and S2 will run Android 3.0 with WiFi and 3G/4G compatibility. Availability is expected to be sometime in September.
This is something we’re definitely looking forward to. Head over to after the jump for a promo video, picture galley and the official press release from Sony.
