Sony Tablet slates are based on Google Android 3.0 operating systems. Both tablets are Wi-Fi and WAN (3G/4G) compatible and users can not only browse the Internet or check e-mail but they can also access digital content including videos, games and books through Sony’s network services and more, on-the-go at any time. The tablets will be PlayStation certified, hence, will be able to play PlayStation games ported to Android operating system.

Sony Tablet S1 sports 9.4" screen with unknown resolution. The weigh and specifications of the tablet are unknown.

The dual screen S2 comes with two 5.5" 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.

“Sony Tablet delivers an entertainment experience where users can enjoy cloud-based services on-the-go at any time. We are aiming to create a new lifestyle by integrating consumer hardware, including ‘Sony Tablet’ with content and network,” said Kunimasa Suzuki, corporate executive, senior vice president and deputy president of consumer products and services group.

Both tablets will become available in fall 2011, which is later than expected originally. However, the delays can be explained by the fact that Sony wants to offer both hardware as well as high quality software and services.
