Sony Releases Android Tablets To Take On Apple


Sony is planning a tablet computer with a touch panel similar to Apple's iPad for later this year. The company's S1 and S2 "Sony Tablets" promise to deliver a perfect combination of hardware, content and network.

The S1 model has been optimized for rich media entertainment and the S2 for mobile communication and entertainment, Sony said. Both tablets feature Nvidia's Tegra 2 design and will become available in the global market starting in fall 2011.



The devices are equipped with the latest Android 3.0 which is designed for devices with larger screen sizes, particularly tablets. Both tablets are WiFi and WAN (3G/4G) compatible and users can not only browse the internet or check e-mail but they can also smoothly access digital content including videos, games and books through Sony's network services.

S1 has a 9.4-inch display (1280x800 pixels). Its off-center of gravity design realizes stability and ease of grip as well as a sense of stability and lightness.

S2 has two 5.5-inch displays (1024x480) that can be folded for easy portability. Its unprecedented dual screen presentation and usability allows its displays to be combined and used as a large screen or for different functions such as playing video on one screen while showing control buttons on the other.

In the mobile computing category, the market for PCs which realize high productivity is expected to steadily grow, particularly in emerging markets. Therefore, Sony said that it would remain committed to strengthening its VAIO brand and introduce compelling products.

Through Qriocity music and video services, users can enjoy video and music content. Also, through PlayStation Suite, users can play PlayStation titles. Additionally, users can download ebook content from Reader Store and use both tablets as digital reading devices.

Through the tablets, users can control home entertainment devices as well as enjoy content in new ways. S1 uses infrared technology and works as universal remote controls for a variety of AV devices starting with BRAVIA models. Users can perform functions like turning on their TVs, changing the channel and adjusting the volume. Also, through DLNA functionality on the tablets, users can "throw" personal content to large screen televisions or music to wireless speakers.
