A guide to the different types of Sony tablets.

The new Sony S1 and S2 tablets are due to be released soon, possibly as early as this September, 2011.

Sony are releasing two types of tablet, the single screen S1, and the two screen S1.

The new S tablets will launch with Android Honeycomb 3.1 and should update again soon.

The new tablets feature DLNA technology – allowing contact with other DLNA capable devices such as a HD TV. This is potentially a big selling point, placing them ahead of the iPad.

Specifications suggest the tablets will come with a 5MP camera on the back, and 3MP on the front of devices.

The tablets are optimised for gaming via the PlayStation network/Playstation Suite, Video on Demand and Music Unlimited.

The Sony tablets are 3G/4G compatible.

The tablets have two storage sizes: 16 or 32 GB. The CPU is reported to be a Nvidia Tegra 2.

Screen Protectors

Screen protectors are an essential purchase, so we would recommend anyone buying a S tablet to get one.


We will wait to see what cases are available for the S tablets and list them here.
