Sony officially announced the S1 and S2 tablets back in April (what the f…?), but the press release contained little in the way of specs. We’ve also seen the awesomely surreal “Two will” videos on YouTube, but again: no specific info.
However, we’ve got some cheeky leaky details on both tablets now, courtesy of a CNET source said to be “familiar with the company's plans for the Android devices”.
You’ll remember the S1 looks like a fairly standard tablet, but with additional weight at the top intended to make it more comfortable to hold. The S2 is the dual-screen clamshell one, a bit like a Nintendo DS.
At launch, you’ll be able to pick up either model with 16 or 32GB of on-board storage. The S1 will be available with or without 3G (so that’s four options in total), but the S2 will only be available with 3G. The S1 also has an SD slot, for those looking for extra storage.
The 9.4in IPS (In-plane switching) display on the S1 will boast TruBlack and Bravia goodness. There’ll also be a range of accessories for the S1, including a dock and a Bluetooth keyboard.
Battery life for the S2 is still unknown, though for the S1 it’s said to be “comparable to the iPad 2”.
Sony is expected to launch the S1 and S2 at Berlin’s IFA next month. The tablets are also expected to get proper names. Phew.
