In addition to having known the name for the single-screen Sony Tablet S, it looks like we now know the retail name for the dual-screen S2 tablet, which will called the Sony Tablet P at launch. The tablet will sport two 5.5-inch displays and will have the same concept as the dual-screen Kyocera Echo Android smartphone for Sprint.
The Tablet P will come with 4 GB of on-board storage, WiFi or 4G configurations, 2 GB pre-loaded micro SDHC card, and a dual-core Tegra 2 processor.
Pricing and availability are not yet known, though Engadget is reporting that retailers should expect the devices soon.
It’s unclear right now if the dual-screen tablet concept will be met with more success than the Kyocera Echo. Despite having a unique concept, the Echo was not quite as popular as had been anticipated, and perhaps the reason being is that the multitasking–or simultasking as Kyocera calls it–is not supported by all apps and only a select few apps can take advantage of that feature. However, users can push the screens together to create a larger tablet mode experience.
