Sony Tablet

UNP ImageWhat is it?

Japanese giant Sony is also getting into the tablet game and is launching not one but two: the S1 and S2. Mind you, these are just code names for now. Their official names will be revealed at their official launch later in the year.

What's special about them?

There's no doubting Sony's mastery when it comes to devices. So these two models, from as much information as is available now, look very exciting, particularly the dual-screen S2. A clamshell design which can actually be folded, the S2 features two 5.5-inch screens. In an already crowded and competitive market, it's all about standing out.

The S1 is also unique in that it is shaped like a wedge. At 9.4 inches, it looks like any tablet from the front but look closer and you will see one side tapers to a thin edge. Sony says this is to imitate the folding of one side of a magazine to hold it easily in one hand. Now that is innovation.

What OS are they on?

Sony, like its other smartphones, is in team Android. This means it will come equipped with the Android 3.0 operating system aka the Honeycomb. For the uninitiated, the Honeycomb is an updated Android OS that is specifically built for tablet use, with different user interfaces from its smartphone sisters.

What else is special about these two?

Well firstly, there's good news for gaming addicts: Both the S1 and S2 will come PlayStation certified. Your familiar gaming controls will pop up once gaming is activated. Looks like Sony really wants to push this as a strong gaming device.

There will also be a USB port for thumb drives and other media devices, something its most famous competitor doesn't have.

All other features are what we've now come to expect from tablets: Dual cameras, Wi-Fi and 3G/4G will all be there.
