Sony S1 S2 Tablets to Carry Six Variants Altogether

August 2, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We have good news for Sony enthusiasts. The S1 and S2 tablet specifications which have been under covers have leaked out.

The Android devices supposedly come in six versions, with the S1 model having four variants while the S2 model carries two. The S1 models available are a 16GB Wi-Fi only, 16GB Wi-Fi and 3G, 32GB Wi-Fi and 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G, while the S2 will come in 16GB and 32GB models that have both Wi-Fi and 3G (it won’t be sporting a separate variant for WiFi like the S1).

The S1 slab features a 9.4-inch IPS multi-touch display with TruBlack and Bravia display technologies. It will also be supporting a full sized SD card slot which would come in handy for storage.

As of now, the S1’s battery life is estimated as being equal to that of the iPad 2. The tablet is also said to be carrying accessories like a dock and at least one Bluetooth keyboard.

We still don’t know much about the S2 apart from a rumor that it may suffer from reduced battery life due to the dual-screen setup. These tablets are slated for a release just before the largest consumer electronics show, the IFA 2011, taking place in Berlin.

The show runs from September 2-7, so we can expect a late August release from the Japanese company. The S1 is likely to be showcased as a tablet for home due to its PS3 connectivity and onboard infra-red remote feature.

Since the likely release aimed for is less than a month away, we might hear a little more about these tablets, including their market names. So hang around with us to catch it fresh off the air.
