Sony Announces S1 and S2 Tablets

Sony has announced S1 and S2 tablets to take on Apple iPad. The new tablets identified, for now, by the code names S1 and S2 will be powered by the latest Android 3.0 operating system and are WiFi and WAN® (3G/4G) compatible.

The S1 is a slate-style tablet with a 9.4-inch screen. Its special power is a strange rolled shape and an “off-center of gravity design” intended to make holding it easier. The S2 is a dual screen device with two 5.5-inch screens.

Both devices are primed for easy and portable entertainment, web browsing, access to email, viewing videos, games, books and more. The tablets will also have access to networked content via Sony’s Qriocity™ Music and Video Services as well as PlayStation® Suite and the Sony Reader™ Store.

With its off-center of gravity form factor, the 9.4-inch S1 offers stability and a sense of lightness, offering comfortable use for hours.

The dual screen S2 (pictured in featured image above) comes with two 5.5-inch displays which can be used together as one large screen to browse websites and more. They can also be used for different functions as users can watch a video on one screen and input commands on the other, or check email on one screen and use the other as a soft keyboard.

What do you think would be the price of Sony S1 and S1 tablets? How much are you willing to pay?
