They come with built in Wi-Fi and is designed to reflect a folded magazine or newspaper.

Sony S1 Tablet PC
The S1 series of tablet PC is a 9.4 inch touch screen tablet that remains within the boundaries of the ‘tablet’. It’s obviously the the competition model to Ipad like tablets in the market. It’s designed to reflect a folded newspaper or magazine in hand.

Sony S2 Tablet PC
The Sony S2 comes with special split screens that can act as either separate screens or a single screen. This Nintendo like design is likely to give more support to gamers and mobility functions (a finer smartphone - tablet mixed device perhaps) . The S2 model exhibits the usual flair of Sony to go beyond conventional standards and ideologies in ‘designing’ hi tech gadgets.

Sony S2 could be More Expensive

The price of Sony S1 and S2 are not yet revealed but the Sony S2 would be more expensive than the S1 tablet. They will have to limit their price if they have to shatter the current tablet makers domination.

Sony Tablet | The Android 3.0 Operating System

Android 3.0 is the super-cool version of Android Operating System released exclusively for Tablet PCs. It focuses on fully utilizing the hardware capabilities of Tablet PC's for enhancing user experience. The previous versions of Android Operating Systems were designed basically for phones. Tablets such as the initial versions of Galaxy Tab (9) had to use the Android 2.3 (designed for phones). Motorola Xoom was the first tablet PC to come installed with Android 3.0. Android is better than Apple iOS in the aspect that you can run the applications you write on your device. That's pretty much of an open source previlage we get with Android.

      They're so sleek and well-designed, shame about the potential price though.
