Sony S1 and S 2 Screen Shots Reveal Exciting Features; Slates to Run Android 3.2 Honeycomb OS

August 4, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It was only a day ago that we had some details coming in on the new two tablet devices from the Sony stables. A new teaser too had started doing the rounds, making it look like the slates were gearing up for a launch date close to the upcoming IFA Berlin event. The latest we get to see is bunch of screen shots that tell us much more about the two tablet devices.

Most importantly, we now know that the devices will run on Android Honeycomb OS.  That’s great piece of news, considering that we have been made to guess as to what Android version the slates will be carrying along with them.

The Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system has been confirmed, and that indeed makes us smile.  As if that wasn’t enough, folks at CarryPad who managed to snap up some cool screenshots of the devices make us even more excited.

The devices would boast an app launcher that will include a Chumby app, which can be explained as a web buddy designed for a bedside table. From what we know already, Sony’s Dash ‘Internet Viewer’ comes powered by Chumby. This, when incorporated into the S1 and S2 tablets, will give us something good to play with.

The slates will also have a pre-installed version of  Zinio. Those who have had their hands on of the Zinio digital magazine publishing platform with apps available for iOS and Android will know how exciting it will be to flaunt the feature on the Sony devices.

The shots also reveal the unique looks of the keyboard, which will most likely come with a number pad. Another aspect you can check for in the Sony S1 and S2 tablet devices includes Sony’s Music Player app that will include the SenseMe mode so as to play music depending on your mood.

Check out the screen shots posted along side, and they are sure to make you go for the device as soon as they arrive at sales counters.
