Sony S1 and S2 Tablets Get More Details Ahead of Launch
We’ve seen a possible release month for Sony’s S1 and S2 tablets. We saw what appeared to be the Sony S1 tablet passing through the FCC with HSPA+ bands destined for AT&T. We’ve seen an official teaser video for both tablets. We’ve even heard that the S1 is likely going up for pre-order in September. And now, today, even more information has surfaced ahead of launch thanks to CNET.
According to their source, the S1 tablet will be available in four flavors when it arrives with a 16GB Wi-Fi only model, a 16GB Wi-Fi and 3G version and bigger storage space options available with 32GB Wi-Fi and 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G models also being available come launch day. As for the S2, it will apparently only have 16GB and 32GB models of the Wi-Fi and 3G variant.
The S1 tablet will apparently rock a 9.4 IPS display with TruBlack and Bravia technology and battery life that is apparently comparable to the iPad 2′s. It will also likely have a full-size SD memory card reader on board as well. There also might be a bunch of accessories available at launch as well with a dock and a Bluetooth keyboard being rumored as possibilities.
Both tablets are expected to be announced at the beginning of September with a launch coming in Europe that same month. A time frame for launch in the United States has yet to surface but if we had to guess, we’re probably not in for too long of a wait, especially with the holidays coming up.
